I know 5 games is a terribly small sample size, but I'm just thinking out loud here.
Last year, at 48 games, 8th place in the East (NJ) was 55 points. 9th place TOR also had 55. So lets say to get in outright, the cutoff would be 56 points.
60 points should get you comfortably in (5th-6th place), so that'll be our goal.
8 points in the bank, we need 52 points in our remaining 43 games. 22-13-8 is enough to get that done, and I think that's a record we're perfectly capable of. As long as Marty continues to play well and allow so few goals, we should be able to get at least a point in the majority of our games.
I expect a lot of 3 point games this season, which bodes well for us since we're traditionally one of the best shootout teams ever. This is where losing Zach will hurt us the most IMO, but Marty, Kovy, and Patty all have stellar shootout credentials.
