    I’ll give him some credit, even though I’m usually critical of him: he started Ward back to back and he seems to have figured out that Lindy can play some center for more than a shift per game.

    Baby steps.

    Another thing that is going to hurt Florida with that compact schedule is how they are playing Barkov. I heard on the NHL network yesterday that he played 23, 27, and 24 plus minutes a game in his last three games. If they keep playing him like that with their schedule, there is no way he doesn’t drop some in performance.

    That's an interesting point. That could definitely burn someone out at a certain point.

    It's also hard to believe that Florida has all 4 of its game against Boston remaining. Of course, one of them got snowed out and moved to their last game, but that's crazy to have that many against one opponent left. Hopefully Boston needs to play for their seeding down to the end.

    For all the pain we've endured this year...

    ...we're sitting in playoff position, in March.

    I hate to say this, but that's significant progress, no matter how this ends up.

    yeah, the Lindholm thing has always been a mystery to me. He's a good face off guy, responsible defensively, big physical center, seems to drive play, and possess the puck. He's a skill guy on top of all that (at least I feel like he is) and yet it has never clicked. Perhaps its because he hasn't ever played the same position for more than 2 periods in a row. Hope that line is left together for a while.

    Its clear we are short 2 legit NHL forwards. Ryan/Rask/Stemp leaving Skiner to play with Wallmark/PDG. Have to find someone for Skinner to play with. he's being wasted.

    There’s 4 5 game blocks that we crapped out on.

    Which means there is likely another 4-5 game block in our future.

    I Didnt realize we had the tiebraker with CBJ. It seems like the hockey gods are just daring the Hurricanes to find a way to miss the playoffs / teasing us.

    Somehow we are on pace for 87 points but still in a playoff spot.

    Still not getting my hopes up.

    Isn't Barkov usually a little injury prone?

    Is he? I know he had a concussion last year, but other than that, I have no idea.

    I think he's just had some bad luck. Been fine this year.

    Just looked at the standings and noticed you guys are in the playoffs! As a Leafs fan who has seen first hand what your team is capable of doing, it makes me ridiculously happy that Francis & Co's good work is being rewarded.

    Didn't watch this one, so ... sure, sure, whatever. They're really working hard for our love now.

    See everyone Sunday.

    I still am. Were only winning because we have to grind Cam into the ground because our GMs goalie “fix” was an epic bust.
