The Canadiens are up 3-0 on the Blues, the Leafs are down 3-1 to the Senators. It’s looking good.
The Canadiens give up 3 straight goals and barely escape with a win and the Leafs battle back and beat Ottawa in overtime.
Everyone wins and the Habs gain no ground.
The Habs never make it easy on themselves and even though they won they did so in their typical frantic and panicky manner.
Today Boston beat Detroit, in Detroit. The Rangers beat the Hurricanes in overtime giving the Canes that extra one point. Maybe the point that secures 8th spot?
This could be one of the tighest finishes in recent history with more than a couple teams missing out by just 1 or 2 points.
