Eastern Conference #1 Seed: Magic Number Thread

So, we have a guaranteed Atlantic Division Championship. Now all that is left is to challenge for the top seed in the East, and potentially for the President's Trophy.

TEAMGPWLOTLPTSROWSOWSOLPOSSROWPMAGIC#
Pittsburgh433310066303076350
Boston422611557224369281.5
Montreal432612557233267280.5

The magic number column works as follows:

Penguins win decreases the magic number for all Atlantic division teams by 1.
Penguins overtime loss decreases the magic number for all Atlantic division teams by 0.5.
Any other team win keeps the magic number the same for that team.
Any other team loss decreases the magic number for that team by 1.
Any other team overtime loss decreases the magic number for that team by 0.5.

The Penguins have locked up the top seed when all other teams' magic numbers are less than or equal to 0 and their ROWP (Regulation and Overtime Wins Possible) is less than the Penguins current ROW.

Here is the table for the President's Trophy:
