I'm not going to get overly excited about this one, but if we go ahead and take care of business in the next two I'll be pretty happy.

Interesting we may be playing Nashville for quite awhile....last two regular season games and then the start of the playoffs.  I don't love that scenario, but you have to win the games in front of you for The Cup. 

Leeeegoooooo

6-0 thus far agaist Nashville...

 

 

Also with the Vegas loss tonight winning our last four in any fashion gets us home ice throughout and a presidents trophy.

Vegas has it much tougher down the stretch too. Both them and Colorado can reach a maximum of 84, however Vegas plays all playoff teams whereas Colorado has one game in hand and plays exclusively the bottom of the barrel minus one vs. the golden knights.

It’s going to create some bad blood for sure. But we do have two things going for us.
 

1) If the Lightning beat the Stars either game and Nashville wins vs the blue jackets Wednesday. They will have clinched the last playoff spot. Would rather the stars trounce the Lightning at least once though. So we could be playing a Nashville team that has already clinched and I could see both teams trying to get/stay healthy. Playing a less physically aggressive game for the final two of regulation.  
 

2) there is going to be a 5 day-week gap between regulation and a possible playoff start for us unless they start us before the west is done and possibly almost 2 week gap before the playoffs if they don’t start the US first. Which is a blessing or a curse depending but at least it won’t have us stacked straight up against against Nashville back to back to back.

Also hoping since Mrazek was the backup last night we’ll see him back in net tonight. 

Good. Hopefully him tonight, Ned or Reimer Thursday and then let him and Ned split Nashville to get a good look at what’s likely coming.

Come on Dougie. That was all on you. 

I wouldn’t put it all on Dougie, Aho had a chance to do something with it. But I cannot debate that Dougie flat out, got out skated. So maybe, maybe as I write this I agree with you more.
