The official "all possible scenarios" thread

Can a mod use this as the thread for all questions abouit who we can play. I will summarize it right here for those who are wondering. There are several variables here. But after tonight's Eastern conf. games, here's the low-down.

-If Philly beats Pittsburgh, we can track down 1st by just getting a point vs. Toronto (or 2 pts. if Pittsburgh gets the loser point). In that case, as 1st seed we could face:

Boston if they don't get a point against Buffalo.
OR
Ottawa if Boston gets so much as a point.

-If Philly gets a point, but Pens get the win, we finish 2nd no matter what. In this scenario, we can play:

Boston if they don't get a point.
Philly if Boston doesn't get as little as the 1 point.

-If Philly loses outright and Penguins win, we are in 2nd no matter what. In this scenario we can play:

Ottawa if Boston simply gets one point against Buffalo
Boston if they don't get a point

With this Boston win, the mathematical possibility of playing Washington or Carolina is gone. Confusing, but this will all make sense by the night of April 6.
