For tomorrow...

Boston can clinch a playoff spot with a regulation win over New Jersey

Anaheim can clinch a playoff spot with a win or OT/SO loss against Colorado
Boston doesn't clinch tomorrow, no matter what happens.

With a win, Boston would have 56 points.
Both Jets and Devils can still hit 56.

Devils- even if the win is not in regulation, the Bruins would win the season series, so they'd still win the tiebreaker if ROW end up being equal. Without winning tomorrow, the Devils would only be able to tie the Bruins in ROW (even if the Bruins don't win in regulation) so any win eliminates the Devils from possibly passing the Bruins.

Jets- Can still hit 56 and pass the Bruins in ROW, so the Bruins won't clinch until the Jets either lose a point or the Bruins gain another.

Basically, the Bruins need:
A) Any win tomorrow AND any other point OR any Winnipeg lost point
B) Any three points including EITHER any one ROW OR any one Devils non-ROW
C) Any two points AND any Winnipeg lost point AND EITHER any one ROW OR any one Devils non-ROW
