But they are not past the point of the magic number, yet, but are close.
Carolina has 34 points with 15 games remaining so they can get 64 points as of now. So they need a few more points.
The Rangers are the de-facto 9th seed thanks to GP and without considering who they have to play
Penguins - 56 pts
8 NYR 34 GP 35 pts + 28 possible points = 63
9 NYI 35 GP 35 pts + 26 possible points = 61
10 CAR 33 GP 34 pts + 30 possible points = 64
11 Wash 35 GP 34 pts + 26 possible points = 60
Pens can clinch just by breaking the wins record(Buff & NYR x2) since that would give them 62 knocking out the Islanders and making the Rangers lose at least 2 points(2 OT/SO losses) which would give them a max of 61 vs. the Pens 62.
