Think about it, 3 teams with 79 points. Ottawa beats Montreal, 2 teams with 79 points 1 team with 81 points. Ottawa beats Philly, 2 teams with 79 points, 1 team with 83 points.

If we beat Boston, we would have 77 points, surpassing Boston and 2 within Mon, and Phil. And I think a game in hand on Mon.
Seems like sound enough logic to me, the playoff odds site was ranking Ottawa as a weaker team because of its goal differential I think, but I don't really see them being any better or worse than Montreal/Philly.
