    The smart thing to do is hire Russians to hack the lottery machine for us.

    Not a given, they’ve historically given the Habs fits.

    Yeah the Columbus win screws up the possibility of our clinching this weekend which was possible.

    We could afford to lose tomorrow but only in overtime. If we lose in regulation, it might be over for us given our remaining games and their having a game in hand.

    it's pretty much over guys.

    If you look at all 3 teams calendar and start looking at possible wins, it's very easy to assume both Caroline and Columbus will finish with 97 points.

    If we match them, we still lose. So we need 98 points. To get 98 points, we need to win all of our games for the rest of the season. We're talking about wins against Washington, Tampa bay, Toronto and Winnipeg. Sorry but, I don't see it.

    It was a nice run, an unexpected one. The lost last night just cost us the playoff. Too bad the team stopped skating in the second and third.

    It's over boys....

    The loss to Columbus doesn't even bug me.

    The two games that sunk us were Isles/Canes, going into the third with the lead late in the game, and then losing. When the season is over, we'll look back at those two games. Those are 3 points we lost, that we had in the bank with minutes left in those games.

    I think this is correct...

    Carolina and Columbus each have 5 games left. MTL has 4. If both Carolina and Columbus go 3-2 (with no OT points), the Habs will need to go at least 3-0-1 to get in (they would pass Columbus).

    PP good or bad, we would be in the playoffs if not for those two late game debacles against Canes/Isles. You cannot throw away points like that with minutes left in games at the end of the season....especially not a Claude Julien team

    Whether we had two late game debacles or not. If the PP was not terrible the habs would be in the playoffs.

    Note that we were also third in the NHL in comebacks this season.
