I really believe for any team in any sport that is a "bubble type" team with regards to playoffs it comes down two things:
1. win the games we should (for us we need to dominate the Panthers and Sabres and other borderline to weak teams)
2. have a substantially winning record at home.

Teams that don't, usually look back and talk about what could have been. Once in the tournament anything can happen but the formula to get there can actually be pretty simple.

If I'm not mistaken, isn't that like the 3rd fake trophy they've tried to peddle for this rivalry over the past 20+ years?

I'd like to award the Panthers a bag of d**ks after the game after we pound them into dust on the scoreboard.

I wonder how much they had to donate to Ricky's campaign fund to get him to do this?

Sending my two kids down to the game tonight. I seem to bring the Bolts bad luck versus the Panturds when I attend in person. I'm gonna stay home and watch it in High Def. Go Bolts!

This hasn't been a rivalry for about 10+ years.

It was a rivalry back then? These teams have never met with anything serious on the line for both of them, let alone playoffs.

Back when Poeschek and Laus were trying to kill each other, it was a rivalry.

I actually reviewed the Buffalo game earlier today. My initial impression watching the game was that Malone was too slow for the Stammer line. Upon further review - they actually had unbelievable amount of scoring chances. Misses by inches and dumps into the middle of the crease for dirty goals. They didnt come to fruition but this line definitely had the opportunities.

Now I do think that Malone should be on that first line - and hopefully they move forward with a bit better luck on their side...the opportunities were definetely there and Stammer/SML/Malone failed to convert. They did show chemistry...
