Well, seeing as they get to play Carolina, Florida and Montreal once each still, and they just beat the Rangers, I'd say things look pretty darn good. Hopefully they can string together 9-1-0 or better.
Carolina won again tonight, so they'd have to go on a major losing streak to fall out now. Florida lost, though (to Carolina), which helps are chances a bit.
Actually, the chances are pretty good the Senators could make it. If they can finish out the season at least 7-1-2 in the last 10 games, and provided they get help from Montreal, Florida, and Buffalo in the losing department, they could make the playoffs. I would have never thought this a month ago.
I have my doubts that every team ahead of them will apart, though. Montreal looks like they'll fall right out of it, but we still have Florida and Buffalo to get through.
That would really be something if they did make the playoffs. I almost think they could get past the first round if they did, because Boston is extremely overrated if you ask me. New Jersey is the real power of the East, so they'll be tough.
Heh. Well, I can't say that I like them all that much myself this year. They aren't going to make the playoffs, but now are all of a sudden winning games when it doesn't mean anything anymore. Figures. =P
I do like Cory Clouston as head coach, though; he's a big upgrade from guys like Hartsburg or Paddock. I hope we keep him next season, since the team is playing well with him as coach.
