Stalking the Standings

Thanks to Pittsburgh’s loss and the Canes’ win both teams are tied in the standings with the same amount of games played. Carolina currently holds the second wild card spot because they own the ROW tiebreaker with the Penguins. With Montreal and Washington both losing as well, last night can be considered a great success for Carolina in the standings.
