Imagine if this team didn't start 1-7-5. I'll give you a moment to close your eyes and envision such a scenario.
Don't look now, but after a win against the Sens last night, we're tied in 10th place in the conference, only 2 points behind the Habs who sit in the last playoff spot. And oh yeah, we have a game in hand over Montreal.
I caught the game from the press box last night, in case I forgot to mention it. For an insider account, revisit that live blogging event.
