Alberts Ready To Go

Out since December, Andrew Alberts will be suiting up tonight for the first time against the Devils. With the playoffs on the line and only three games remaining, it is great news to have him back and ready to go.

Marc Savard has now been off the ice for 9 days with a cracked bone in his back. Somehow, someway, Claude Julien is saying that he might be ready to skate soon. Call me confused, but a cracked bone in your back sounds pretty serious. I'd be interested to see if Savvy makes it back within two weeks.

Obviously a huge game vs. the Devils tonight in New Jersey. Washington won their game last convincingly against the Hurricanes, 4-1. Now only a point back, a win tonight for the B's would be huge to regain their three point comfort. Furthermore, a win tonight puts the B's in a 5th place tie with the Rangers. Basically, if the B's are able to take 2 wins out of the last 3 games, they will be assured a spot in post-season play. I can see them taking an OT win tonight. The Devils have already clinched a spot and might be resting some guys (hopefully namely the perennial 40 game winner that plays between the pipes).

Here's the remaining games for the playoff hopefuls:

Boston (3) ................. - @NJ, @OTT, Buf
Washington (2) ........... - TB, FLA
Philadelphia (3) ........... - @PIT, NJ, Pit
Ottawa (2) ................... - @TOR, Bos
New York Rangers (3) - @NYI, NYI, @NJ

I bet he does make it back. Savvy that is. Those hydrocortisone shots are money.
