If you were wondering what happened in the “games that matter” category last night, here’s a picture for you:
We don’t usually post the standings until after the trade deadline, but I think this is worth seeing:
I think the best term for this is “dangerously close.” A loss tonight means Carolina is one point from a playoff spot with all square on the games played front. Florida plays Boston tonight and can move ahead of the Sabres with a win and game in hand. Tonight, as usual, is huge.
The good news is that today is Hockey Day in Canada, which means the Habs game will be on CBC at 3pm. I’ll be watching CBC all day because I’m still sick, but that means I’ll have plenty of posts up if you’re doing the same. Today is a very big day for hockey.
