The Oilers likely need 24-26 points in the next 19 games. Not impossible, but getting nearly to that point. The Oilers have to decide they're better than a .500 hockey club and play like it down the stretch. The last week of the season is particularly grueling for the Oilers, playing 5 games in 7 nights against some of the best teams in the conference.

Here's a possible scenario for the remaining 19 games that gets the Oilers into the playoffs. It would have to be a really inspired Oiler team:
St. Louis (Home) win 2
Nashville (Away) win 2
St. Louis (Away) OT 1
Columbus (Home) win 2
Vancouver (Home) loss
Calgary (Home) win 2
Calgary (Away) OT 1
Vancouver (Away) win 2
L.A. (Away) win 2
Anaheim (Away) loss
Phoenix (Home) win 2
Calgary (Home) win 2
Minnesota (Home) loss
Colorado (Away) win 2
Anaheim (Home) loss
Anaheim (Home) win 2
Chicago (Home) win 2
Minnesota (Away) loss
Vancouver (Home) win 2
