We are looking solid to get in.

100 pts seems to get us ~50% chance of top 3 in the division.
94 pts gives us >50% to make the playoffs
97 pts puts us at 98.5% or better to get in the playoffs, with 70% chance of being the 7 seed or higher and avoiding Tampa.

This is from sportsclubstats, so simulation based. We want Montreal and/or Columbus to lose in order to avoid being 8th or 9th.

Tampa is in outer space, Boston has 10 pts on us, but everyone else is catchable. We are 4th in the metro behind Washington, Pittsburgh, and NYI. We have a not impossible shot at the division given that we play the Caps twice and have games in hand on everyone...specifically 2 games on PIT.

Remaining games:

WSH: 2
PHI: 2
PIT, TOR, NJD


Washington	96   44-24-8  6 GR
NY Islanders 95 44-25-7 6 GR
Pittsburgh 95 42-24-11 5 GR
Carolina 91 42-26-7 7 GR
Columbus 86 41-30-4 7 GR
Philadelphia 80 36-32-8 6 GR


Anyhoo... it will be fun to watch. We are actually fighting for a decent seed as opposed to the usual routine of having a hail mary's chance of 8th place then inevitably ending up in 9th or 10th.

At Washington tonight. A win puts us at 99.4% to make the playoffs

no questioning their effort, second half of this game has been intense

also re: playoffs -- it's great if we make it of course but we really need to avoid tampa bay in the first round

All these scenarios saying we're 90+% in... we gotta finish this shit out. If we don't make the playoffs this year it'll be a really hard pill to swallow

[Edited on March 28, 2019 at 9:49 PM. Reason : Ftr, I think we'll make it in, just saying]

i mean basically we have to count on beating the flyers 2x and devils once and I think we are golden, but if we lose one of those and have to take one of Pens or Leafs instead we are in trouble

Cyclones have for objective to resume(to take back) foot on Saturday afternoon by welcoming the Flyers of Philadelphia in the PNC Arena."

1 point above Montreal for the last wildcard spot. No more room for error or we're gonna miss the playoffs again. Really need to play for WC1 to avoid the Tampa buzzsaw

Was looking at the tie breaker rules in case it came down to that. I think I have this right.

Team...Pts...ROW...GD
Canes..78....42.....19
Colum..77....44.....21
Montr...77....41.....13

First tie breaker is ROW, then earned points in head to head games*, then goal differential

*If two clubs are tied, and have not played an equal number of home games against each other, points earned in the first game played in the city that had the extra game shall not be included.

I think Columbus would beat us on ROW in any scenario where we are tied
If Montreal ends up tied with us in ROW, they would beat us in head-to-head because of that stupid caveat. We beat them 2 out of 3 games but the first one gets thrown out because of that rule. In the two games that count, we got 2 pts (W/L) and they got 3 pts.(W/OTL)

In a 3-way tie Columbus would get in on ROW and then then the tie breaker would be applied to us and Montreal.

Just win baby

Caps are going to score a goal for every time the announcer calls Brett Pesce Joe Pesci.
