Well, this is it...the last weekend of the season. Who comes to the big dance and who has a date with the golf clubs will be decided shortly. Mind you, most of the attendees to the dance are already known but there is still the small matter of the last 3 spots in the East. Philadelphia, Boston, the Rangers and the Habs are stuck in a fight to the death. Tonight, the Habs are playing the Leafs. A win in and they will be given their ticket in to the playoffs fun fair, a loss and they will have to anxiously await the result of tomorrow's clash between the Flyers and the Rangers. Should the Rangers win in overtime, both the Rangers and Flyers would qualify for the playoffs. As for Boston, they still have two games to play and a win tonight would guarantee springtime hockey in Beantown.
What an exciting day this promises to be. As an Habs fan, having seen them fail to book their place two games in a row, I will admit that I am a little bit nervous but I keep the fait nonetheless! I am definitely going to stay up to watch the game tonight and I am confident that Halak will goal heck of a game and get the Habs right where they belong, in the playoffs!
Why am I so confident you ask? Well how could a day where I pulled the card below not be a lucky day?
