New York Playoff Path-Short Version/Okposo Released From Hospital

Great news on Okposo.
Two wins both in regulation or overtime. (ROW) Shootout wins no good, would have to pull goaltender/score before OT expires.

Toronto can lose one game in a shootout, or both games in regulation. Anything else eliminates NY.

Garth Snow loves having extra depth around (as we see in goal at NHL/AHL level) so I do think this is one of Doug Weight's boom or bust decisions.

In March 2014 Snow flew Johan Sundstrom into Tampa for a game that meant absolutely nothing. (remember 14 round shootout?)

For this team to go 7 defense it usually meant being on west coast with one game left on a trip.

This team had two days to find a replacement for Hickey on left wing, & their 5th overall pick (Michael Dal Colle) playing left wing in Bridgeport, & had Kearns/others capable of playing wing ready in case Kulemin could not go.

They played a career defender in an elimination game, as a second line left wing.

I want them to get in the playoffs, but to not write about it would be a mistake.
