If the Washington bluered birds lose and the Winnipeg airplanes win, they will swap places and be virtually tied as far as we're concerned. That will still place the Winnipeg airplanes behind us even though they're in 3rd place having played 1 more game. In other words, If one of those 2 teams lose in regulation, we will have either a 1 game 2 point advantage or 2 teams each with a game behind us and bidding us out of the playoffs only if we have a record that's equal or worse than theirs in almost any manner in the final 4 games for us, 3 games for them. If they both win, it'll be an uphill battle.
If the Caps win, realistically, we're battling the Jets and the Jets alone for the spot so I'd very much rather see the Caps lose. It's almost as important as seeing the Jets lose.
