The only reason the Bruins can't clinch tonight are the Jets.
They trail us by 12 points (possibly 14 points after tonight's game) and they have to play 7 more games.
Unlike the Devils who couldn't catch up to us anymore if we win in regulation today (they'd trail by 16 points with 8 more games to go and they couldn't get more ROW than us), the Jets would have more ROW if they won all 7 games and we lost all 7 games.

But oh well, does it actually matter when we clinch? We will make the playoffs anyway. It's all about the division or maybe even the conference.
