Although Detroit can catch Vancouver on ROW, Columbus can not if VAN wins.
9 teams, one of which is VAN leaving 8 opponents, of those 8 only 7 have the ability to surpass VAN in the standings, ergo, VAN must be a top 8 team
Its a weird situation, but that's the truth. Win and in.
Did you read what I wrote?
They clinch with a ROW win.
If the win in a SO then they have 57 points, 20 ROW.
Columbus can max out at 57 points, 20 ROW.
Yes Vancouver does have the H2H tiebreaker.
However if it were a 3 way tie with Detroit at 57 points, 20 ROW the h2h tiebreaker involves all 3 teams.
Vancouver would in fact lose a 3 way head to head tiebreaker between them, Columbus and Detroit
