Islanders 34 wins, 79 points
Anaheim 34 wins, 80 points

Toronto 35 wins, 80 points

Question is, are games won the tie breaker? Meaning Toronto finished 6th and out of the lottery? TSN also has an article up saying Habs and Leafs both have a shot at 1st overall.... but they don't??
You should us the NHL standings over TSN. They're better. The tie-breaker is ROWs (Regulation/Overtime wins). Anaheim and Toronto are tied in ROWs, so the tie breaker is +/-. Toronto has a worse +/- than Anaheim so Toronto finishes below Anaheim.
