    We're undefeated with him though. Plus he's retired now so no need to worry about late-game turnovers :sarcasm:

    I could look it up, but see posters refer to TT, as in player TT.

    I referred to TT in an earlier post or yesterdays GDT, something like "how's TT doing?"
    I got a response, however now wonder if the responder knew when I wrote TT, was referring to Tripp Tracey :propeller

    We really need one of these teams to go on an 8 game losing streak

    They had a Canes powerfail. Gave up a shorty and then at the end of the PF, guy comes out of the box and scores another on a breakaway. 1-1 game became 3-1 just like that.

    TT is leading his team in points.

    Does that tell more about the team than it does about TT?

    Looks like will Columbus lose. Down 4-1 now with less than 4 minutes to play.

    Last wild card spot in the Eastern Conference:

    We need to work on our ROWs though. Currently 3 ROWs behind both Columbus and Florida. I have a feeling we could see a tie for the last spot, maybe even a 3 way. :naughty:

    I never understand ROW. Someone please explain to me how we are ahead of the Jackets when we have the same amount of games played, but they have 3 more regulation wins than us? Not complaining, but I think the team with the less loser points should be the team ahead in the standings.

    To think this team could be like 4-6 pts higher if they didn't sit on the crapper for 6 freaking entire games.

    We are actually tied with them in ROWs. My mistake. I accidentally attributed the Devils 29 ROWs to Columbus.

    The opponent Above or Even/Below NHL .500 split for New Jersey is +11 the rest of the way. For the sake of comparison, Carolina and Columbus are at +3. Florida is at +2.

    That big road trip is particularly gruesome for them. The Devils are 9 games above NHL .500 right now; that stretch alone could knock them down 2-4 games.

    So Peters finally goes with Ward for a B2B and they win both. I'd love to grab a beer and ask him a few questions.

    The Canes NEED to catch NJ IMO. I still don't think there will be a slowdown in Florida's play and I feel they'll get 1 playoff spot so the Canes need to beat NJ and CLB for the other.

    The good thing with Florida is they have to play 17 games in 31 days this month, and then 5 in 7 days in April. While they have some games that look a bit easier based on where the teams are in the standings, having an even more compacted schedule than everyone else because of all those games in hand could end up hurting them. That may be what ultimately leads to their slip in play. And as we've proven for years, just because a team is bad in the standings, doesn't mean they won't be tough to play. I believe Arizona has beaten Minnesota (x2), San Jose, and Anaheim in the last month. Buffalo has beaten Boston and Tampa twice recently. Montreal beat what should have been a desperate Isles team twice this week. And on an on. We have one point up on Florida. We need to beat them in regulation head to head, and then finding 3 to 4 points on them from there won't be so bad.

    Of course, with Jersey looking to have that difficult schedule, passing them won't be impossible. Obviously, the most important thing is taking care of our own business heading down the stretch and the rest will work itself out. Maybe riding Cam pretty much every game from here on out, and some inspiration from Jordan will be enough to find us some of the consistency we haven't seen on a regular basis this year.
