Well we haven't lost tonight yet, have we? The chances of us not getting a point tonight against a weak (statistically) Sabres team, are slim. These percentags also take into account the fact that we have the easiest schedule on paper out of all the teams fighting for a spot. Sure, you can argue that they're a bit inflated, but statistically speaking, the percentages are not wrong.

Also - to expand a bit on those percentages - Winnipeg only has a 17% chance at the 7 or 8 seed. 22% chance at the 3. The 39% is a combined number.
