It actually is too much for some people. JR's just-published story only talks of vague getting close, though no Saturday data was required for the Blues' magic number to be two, as Blues, Columbus and Dallas were all idle. Over at the Asylum (I peeked out of curiosity) they think the magic number is three

Blues, Columbus (1) and Dallas (2) all play Sunday. Even if the Blues lose there's a reasonably good chance they clinch the playoffs, as Columbus is in San Jose and Dallas is in LA.

The magic number is three (with Detroit) to clinch 7th and avoid Chicago in round 1. However, if the Blues win with an ROW Sunday, they clinch at least 7th also, as that would clinch the Blues over Detroit in any tiebreak scenario.
