The rest of the Atlantic outside of Boston is just as meh as us, if not worse. Tampa just lost to Minnesota (4-5-1 in their last 10), Montreal (1-6-3) lost to Colorado, Buffalo (3-5-2) lost to Calgary - all of them lost in regulation. We do need to hang on to the top3 spot in the Atlantic because the wildcards will most likely go to the Metro... I'm glad the team is having fun. I trust Q to keep them working; and better them having fun than falling into gloom-and-doom of "this is going to be another lost season 'cause we're the Panthers so why don't we just give up". Just get some wins. We had enough cushion (and the teams around us lost enough) that recently losing 4/5 didn't really cost us. We have two games in hand on BUF and MTL, three games in hand on TOR - win those and we have a nice cushion of 4-7 points over those teams. Tampa is two points behind us with one game in hand - they're the closest to us but they've also been losing lately (1-3-1 in the past five). The inter-division games will be huge. We have a big homestand here, let's make it count.
