I usually consider myself an optimist. But in the case of our playoff hopes I think it's almost over. We're hanging on to the eighth spot by our fingernails and we have a tough schedule coming up.
A Home and Home with the Devils and newly acquired Kovalchuk followed by a Home and Home with Montreal right before the Olympic break.
We'll have to see what happens with our new acquisitions over the next week and just wait and see what happens after the break.
