Columbus beats the pens so were still 6pts out of the playoffs with a grueling week coming. Sens monday then caps wed, @toronto thursday, and another road game saturday. We really need to win all of them to stay in the hunt
Which is exactly why their current hot streak is not a good thing. They will either get thiiiiiis close to the playoffs, or squeak in and make a 4 or 5 game exit and then stand pat in the offseason.
If they don’t make a serious play for Quenneville, I’m going to be pissed. Gordon has done alright, but I’d attribute that more to the team quitting on Hakstol and being happy to have anyone else behind the bench. They need someone with a legitimate pedigree to kick their collective asses and demand better, more consistent effort.
