This is where the schedule gets rough. They had BOS twice, now they got PHL twice, then they got WSH. The get a "break" by playing less physical teams in TB and TOR, but those are still good teams to have to play point wise.
This is why they shouldn't be making any rental moves till much much later. They need to see where they are after this. It's a brutal 6 week stretch or so.
They have managed to pull away a little in it though. They are holding a 9 point lead on the last WC spot. But their next two games are against Phil who is just outside and you know they are going to go in there trying to play mean. Because they can't afford to lose those two games. Then you know TOR will be playing hard because they are sitting outside looking in to at the moment.
It's gonna be a rough month for them before the trade deadline. But we'll see what happens.
