    What are the teams schedules like? I think half of the Leafs remaining games are against the Jets and Habs, so it’ll definitely be a battle for them.

    It's an interesting year. Four divisions separates the top teams more clearly.

    Florida has 4 left against Tampa and 4 against Carolina. That's pretty rough. Tampa only has 2 left against Carolina. Washington has the Islanders 4 times, Pittsburgh twice and Boston 3 times. Islanders only have 3 left against Boston, done with Pitt already. Colorado only has 2 against each of Vegas and Minnesota, but 4 against the Blues. Vegas also has 4 against the Blues and 2 against the Wild. The Blues and Wild play 7 times down the stretch.

    Seems like Colorado and Vegas have the easiest road (though I still can't figure out why the blues aren't good) and Florida and Washington have it pretty tough. But who knows, it'll probably be Florida.

    Florida is playing the best hockey of their season right now. Although, Carolina always seems to have their number somehow. If they can widen their lead over Carolina in the next couple weeks, I honestly think they take it. I' d bet on trade reinforcements coming in too. Two games against Canes this week.

    I will include those here also at some point. Now, with 19 games or so left for almost ten teams, that would be closer to 200 games to list.

    They also have the longest win streak in NHL, six games right now.

    Colorado is basically in the same boat. 14 game point streak where they’ve worked their average shot differential into the double digits. But these streaks don’t last forever and they fall apart in the most random ways. Maybe we’ll drop several games to SJ down the stretch. Who knows?

    Avs also just got done playing 15 of 17 at home and only have only 5 home games left. They definitely have an altitude advantage with the pace and style of play. Don't see them losing too many games remaining, but can see them splitting games with St Louis and Vegas.

    The Islanders have the following:
    BOS - 3 left (all on road) - 5-0-0
    BUF - 2 left (all on road) - 6-0-0
    NJD - 2 left (all at home) - 5-1-0
    NYR - 5 left (4 home/1 road) - 2-1-0
    PHI - 2 left (split) - 3-1-0-2
    WAS - 4 left (3 home/1 road) - 1-3-0

    the only remaining team they’ve really struggled with is Washington. They do have a good shot to finish off these season series with solid records of trends remain.

    finally we’ll see the true shot counts without Pepsi Center inflation. Can’t wait for the first game where the Avalanche score 5 goals on 4 shots

    We can only beat the Devils and Sabres, no way we can compete with other said teams.

    I forgot about that. Only beating lottery teams and the others will just steamroll us.

    Fast is fast, regardless of altitude. I don't think Minnesota, for example, was tired due to altitude when they gave up 25 shots in the 1st period. If so, they might need to look at their conditioning. Home ice certainly has it's advantages, the elevation thing is highly overrated though.

    Avs can’t possibly keep up their hot streak. They were mediocre to start the year and on fire through March, and they’ll probably be good down the stretch but not quite as hot

    I look at this completely different. We play great against both teams. We suck vs calgary and ottawa.

    Strength of schedule means nothing for the Lightning, we're consistently taking nights off against teams like Detroit and Columbus. We've also lost 6 of our last 7 when Vasilevskiy isn't playing.

    So in summary, we can scratch off Tampa for the President's Trophy. And good riddance, I want nothing to do with it after 2019.
