    Anyone have a screen cap off Dzingel holding the other guy down with his fist pumped and ready? That was awesome!

    Too many penalties taken, not enough given out to the Panthers.

    Thornton did *not* have 3 fights since he only got a double minor against Phaneuf. But he landed about five punches, is that not a fight? And he was the only one with gloves off, is that not instigator? Reffing was, once again, terrible.  Turris is hooked ask the way from the blue line in on a two one when he didn't even have the puck, but on the ending back check he gets the hook on Jagr. Don't get me wrong, he deserved the minor, but the play should have been over 20 second earlier with a PP for three Sens.  Thornton also should have had the instigator earlier.  Guy skates through the crease and hooks his skate on Andy's foot, that was no accident, but when Andy complains the ref tells him off.

    Yeah, I normally resist the urge to complain about officiating, but this was pretty bad. Zack Smith ripped the officials a bit after the game too.

    How about my man Anderson. What a performance!! Pageau and Wingels were killing it on the PK and also late in the game...very nice effort all around.

    That save looks so much more impressive in slo-mo. At full speed you can tell Smith completely flubbed the shot.

    If by "they" you mean the Panthers, no way. 8 points to make up and 4 teams to pass. Over the last ten games they kept pace with Ottawa but lost ground on Boston. Made up kids point point on the Leafs. Even the 5 points they gained on the free falling Habs is barely enough to catch them over the remaining regular season games, *if* the Habs continue to fall. Rumour is Luongo is injured, so they have to roll with Reimer.

    We are already had a magical run this century. Used up all the magic on that one.

    The first wildcard will be from the Metropolitan, and they will face the winner of the Atlantic. The Panthers don't have a chance of getting the first wildcard. If they win the second wildcard, they play the winner of the Metropolitan Division, and it will be over quickly.

    The Panthers need to get into the top three in the Atlantic. The Leafs are starting their California seeing tomorrow. By the time it's over the Panthers will very likely be ahead of them. But that still leaves the Sens and Bruins.

    Given Florida's remaining schedule I have some serious doubts about them cracking the top three.

    By the way, what is the standings pool like? Am I still hovering near the bottom?

    Top teams in each Division play the wildcard teams (higher-seeded top team plays lower-seeded wildcard). The 2/3 seeds in each Division play each other.

    Panthers' chances of making the playoffs dropped a whopping 9.8% with the loss in regulation. Now at 28%. Their schedule is not favorable, with 13 of their remaining 21 games against playoff teams. That 5 game road trip sweep really set them up to fail, didn't it. Before that trip they were in a really tough spot (remember I said that the Islanders appeared to have the inside track?) Then they sweep the five games on the road but, of course, that's not sustainable. They've now lost three in a row at home since that trip. Both teams are 6-4-0 over their last 10.

    It's crazy how tight the standings are. I mean, if Ottawa were to lose 3 in a row it would decimate our chances as well. All the more reason to load up for a push.
