    Isles shot their load on the Tavares game (sorry for the poor visual) and now seem a little lackluster.

    Loss to Caps was first loss on the 2nd game of a back2back, and then losing badly to the Gritties....not a good look.

    As the calendar has turned to March, its now time for me to pick my Western Conference team to follow for the playoffs...research commencing! lol

    Alrighty then ...I am going with Calgary.

    They were the 1st WC team I rooted for back in 1989 to prevent an Oilers 3peat.

    I loved that 89 team that I adopted it over the Isles in my college Sega hockey league.

    So in honor of that 30th anniversary - I am choosing Calgary, so now is the time to catch up on this season's shenanigans and successes.

    Looks like Caps and Isles could flip flop the division lead until last game of the year.

    I may, MAY, possibly pull for the Isles unless they make it to cup finals. Then FUCK THAT!

    I could get on board with Calgary too.

    The Flyers seem to own the Mudsharks, for some reason. Some really nasty stuff in last night's laugher.

    I saw that Voracek hit. 2 mins. nothing more. It's a penalty for sure because the puck wasn't there, but JB was coming in for hit and JV reveresed it...happens all the time. Of course Isles fans are all dialing 911...sorry Mud I'll be watching that next match-up for sure after JB threatens "I will get you"

    Nevermind the dirty hit that Boychuk put on Nolan Patrick last year.

    I have no f-ing clue why the Gritties seem to consistently crush the Isles in NY.

    Friggin Cr@pitals and the Cindys are on a tear, each better than 8 of last 10; while Isles go sub 500 in same span. The probability of being the 7 or 8 seed has doubled while the Caps by virtue of their schedule and the tiebreaks now are over 50% to win division.

    Looking like the playoffs will slip through the Habs fingers... Just not hot enough right now to keep up with the other teams vying for a Wild card spot....

    If standings ended today, Isles would avoid both Cindy's and Cr@pitals in round one.

    As for the Flames, seems like their goaltending situation while improved over prior year has hit a recent rough patch.

    If it ended today, the Habs would be 9th. Jackets keep winning whenever we do. Right now it's looking like a race between Habs, Jackets, with Flyers having an outside chance.

    What a game in Pittsburgh tonight. Goaltending was off-the-hook on both sides. Shame about the winning team, though.
