I've been thinking a lot about who to root for in these final days. And though I tend to have more hatred for the Flyers than the Rangers, I want the Flyers to finish 8th and the Rangers to finish 9th.
So that would mean pulling for Boston and Montreal to win out or hoping for some OT charity points (but especially hoping the Bruins knock off Buffalo). I also would like to see the Rangers and Flyers spilt their series. The Rangers win Friday night (not in OT), and then see the Flyers win back on home ice.
That should give Devil fans the scenario we'd want: The Rangers out of the playoffs and the Flyers doomed to play the Capitals. And give us either Boston or Montreal, two teams I'm very comfortable playing in the 1st Round.
