The draft pick order for playoff teams is

#30 - Stanley cup winner
#29 - SCF loser
#28-27 - ECF & WCF losers
#26-15 - Remaining division winners followed by the rest according to regular season records

Detroit didn't win their division so this is good for us. In the best outcome if Detroit lost in the first round and the rest of the divisional winners won their matches, the the lowest the Detroit pick could be is #20.

#22 - Pens (103) or Flyers (108)
#21 - Devils (102)
#20 - Redwings (102)
#19 - Blackhawks (101)
#18 - Sharks (96)
#17 - Kings (95)
#16 - Caps (92)
#15 - Sens (92)

The tie breaker for teams with the same amount of points is who has the better record. Caps are placed higher because they have 1 more win than the Sens. The Devils and the Red Wings have identical records so I think the next tiebreaker is who did better head-to-head where NJ won their only game against Detroit this season.
