Tiebreaker: In the event teams are tied in the standings, the following tiebreakers are applied to determine which team receives the higher seeding.
1. The fewer number of games played (i.e., superior points percentage).
2. The greater number of games won (not including games won in a shootout).
3. The greater number of points earned in games between the tied clubs. If two clubs are tied, and have not played an equal number of home games against each other, points earned in the first game played in the city that had the extra game shall not be included. If more than two clubs are tied, the higher percentage of available points earned in games among those clubs, and not including any "odd" games, shall be used to determine the standing.
4. Goal differential.
I think one more win and no one in the division will be able to beat us on any tiebreaker scenerio. The devils would lose on #2 even if they win out. None of the other teams can win on the #3 scenerio...
Thus 1 win + 7 more points gained by us in any way over the last 12 games and we win the division no matter what.
The devils can amass a total of 65 points at this point. The Rags 63, the Isles 61, and the flyers 59. thus 1 win +1 point gained by us or 1 loss and 1 other point lost by the Flyers eliminates them
thus 1 win +3 points gained by us or 1 loss and 3 other points lost by the Rangers eliminates them
thus 1 win +5 points gained by us or 1 loss and 5 other points lost by the Isles eliminates them
thus 1 win +7 points gained by us or 1 loss and 7 other points lost by the Devils eliminates them
