Filppula returns & has two goals, they earned 2nd seed with a nightmare schedule, almost never resting. Remarkable season to just keep earning points after years of writing how the key is avoiding regulation losing streaks....they did, never losing three straight in 82 games & still every game it felt like they had to win to match teams with them or chasing them in the standings. And here they are with the most remarkable turn around in a century for goals allowed, winning the William Jennings Trophy. This team bought in & everyone played their role to where someone was going to do something to help win. I knew they would be a better team & in the playoff mix as soon as they got Barry Trotz, that some players would take steps forward never seen before here, did not expect to lead NHL in least goals allowed. Remarkable accomplishment & to play almost every other day on almost no rest, and secure second was outstanding.

Ok, we got a playoff series with home ice vs Pens, and now we got Bridgeport in the playoffs.
