    I’m not sure any of that matters. I’d be curious to see if there are numbers to back up that games with playoff implications towards the end of the season are higher scoring. Frankly, teams playing hard for the playoffs also play hard in the defensive end, so it could be a wash, and most players on non-playoff teams are playing for their spots next season, so while there could be a fall-off in intensity, I doubt its dramatic.

  • mathewsmarner

    teams vying for a playoff spot won’t play defense if there’s not a goal to defend!
    and really i can’t name that many punt players vying for spots next season other than remi ellie and if u want defense chychrun

  • mathewsmarner

    looking at tomorrow’s game i can say the rangers based on the ‘playoff implications’ is in the best spot as
    1. It will be the highest playoff implication game
    2. panthers on their second of a back to back..away
    3. rangers at home

    and for all teams playing a back to back team, u got to go with the top line

  • mathewsmarner

    there are two teams tonight who are or have played tonight in the spoiler role concerning playoffs
    winnipeg
    buffalo

  • mathewsmarner

    but it could also be the flames with the highest implication for playoffs, i won’t know ti’ll tomorrow anyhow

    My guess is it’s going to magnify what you’re already good at. Defensive teams will be involved in more low scoring games, while teams with multiple scoring lines will continue to put up goals.
