You could just as easily make the exact same opposite argument. What if the 3rd place team wins the lottery? We should have won this game shouldn't we have?

This isn't actually the case. Oilers finished 25th in the league, tied with Chicago with 71 points. If the Oilers didn't win that last game Chicago would have finished 25th yes, but the Oilers would have finished 27th, not 26th. Washington would have finished where Chicago did. At least we could have gotten Alzner...
