Are Ovechkin, Huet and their Capitals team destined for the playoffs? You tell us!
With an average of 7 games left to be played by every team in the NHL, we here at Habs Hockey-Talkey would like you to voice your predictions as to whom you believe will qualify as the 7th and 8th Conference seeds, and who will miss the cut at #9 and #10.
To help you in doing so, here's a list of the #5-#12 seeds as they stand right now:
6. NY Rangers-89
12. Phoenix -80
I believe that in the East, the Capitals will not be denied a playoff spot, but I can't really see them catching Philly, so I will guess that Philly will grab the #7 spot, Washington will settle at #8, Boston will fall to #9, and Florida will nail down #10.
Out West, I can't envision any of the teams on the bubble sneaking in for a playoff spot, but I do believe that Colorado and Vancouver will switch positions; therefore, Colorado at #7, Vancouver at #8, Edmonton will grab #9, and Nashville will round out at #10.
Leave a comment on your predicitions, and also, comment on who you would like the playoff-bound Montreal Canadiens to face in the opening round of the playoffs...would you like a date with not-so-big, bad Bruins? How about a date with an old flame as in Cristobal Huet, Alexander Ovechkin and co.? Let us know!
