Not much in the way of news, other than the playoff races have been super tight. Rod retired last night and got a banner raised for him, and Laurier is soon going to be done. Other than that…well, its been the annual death march to the season’s end.
In other league news, Oshie skipped a practice and will now miss 2 games. And Selanne is ridiculous. And Crosby is skating with the team again…a little too late for my fantasy team there Sid.
Can’t think of any other league news either, so on to the standings:
Carolina and Toronto still have a shot I guess, but with only 6 games remaining (5 for the laffs) it’s looking less and less likely.
I find it amazing that even 2nd place hasn’t locked up a playoff position yet. Although, looking at the standings and I think that the teams that are in now will be the ones that make it.
The Barons are tied for 7th with 83 points, but due to games played are actually sitting in 9th right now. Hopefully Giroux can help them out. I am assuming the AHL plays the same number of games, so there are only 7 games remaining for them.
Speaking of Giroux, he is still 2nd in league scoring with 71 points in 66 games. Brad Moran is sitting 6th in league scoring with 67 points in 75 games.
