So last night the Thrashers offered up a first seder of actual shit, but the Bruins lost too, so, um, hm?
Tonight they play the Toronto fellas. I can't be bothered to do a proper game day post; perhaps someone else will indulge you.
The Boston fellas also play tonight, against the New Jerseyians. Maybe the Thrashers just didn't want to tie for 8th last night; maybe they're a more Tuesday-philic team.
Does any of this matter, though? As all of you well know, Boston would get the tie-breaker in the event of a Thrashers win and a Bruins loss. And I don't really see this situation changing, which is to say, I don't foresee a Bruins collapse. Or a Philly collapse, come to that.
So, on to the question that actually does matter: what does 9th place mean for this team?
