Perspective Pt II

2 points.  How's that for perspective?  

What's THM talking about?  

Let's set aside the Leaf's game-in-hand advantage for a moment and click over to the NHL Eastern Conference standings as of today (do it NOW because it changes at ca. 21h30 tonight!).  

2 points.  That's all that separates Ottawa (11th position) and Toronto (5th position).  For fun, let's imagine the best possible scenario for tomorrow night:

Ottawa defeats Boston in a close game whilst Toronto falls to the Rangers in a blowout.  

That sets up Tuesday's BoO game as a slightly more meaningful game.  Could the Senators take a more favourable position in the East?
