I do not know if this team has two pressure wins in
them against competition with nothing to lose. If
Buffalo helps them I think they make it but if they
go 3-0, I do not think the Islanders qualify
unless something changes.
I truly honestly believe the Isles will NOT get 4 points out
of the next three games.
Thus, if the Sabres should manage to ride the emotion and
the good scheduling they've had to end this season with 3
additional wins, they make the playoffs - and deservedly
Were there to be no injury to Blake, and I were certain that
Hamr and Scatch would be playing tonight (which I believe
they will), I'd be pretty confident in this team taking their
destiny into their own hands.
After the losses this past weekend, I feel we are now
dependent upon other teams to decide whether we make
the playoffs or not.
