Assuming "odd games" is the uneven season winners first home game, it looks like we'd win that one as well. Looked up each teams results, points gotten against each other and I took the odd game out (NYR-NYI does not have an odd game since they met four times, two on each home teams rink).


3-2 SOL vs. NYI
5-3 W vs. NYI
3-2 W vs. NYR
3-0 W vs. NYR
Record: 3-0-1 (7/8 possible points - 87.5% of possible points were earned)


3-2 W vs. OTT
5-3 L vs. OTT
4-1 L vs. NYR
4-3 W vs. NYR
2-1 OTL vs. NYR
1-0 OTL vs. NYR
Record: 2-2-2 (6/12 possible points - 50% of possible points were earned)


3-2 L vs. OTT
3-0 L vs. OTT
4-1 W vs. NYI
4-3 SOL vs. NYI
2-1 W vs. NYI
1-0 W vs. NYI
Record: 3-2-1 (7/12 points - 58.33333% of possible points were earned)

Ranking by Percentage of Possible Points

1) Ottawa Senators - 87.5%
2) New York Rangers - 58.3333333%
3) New York Islanders - 50%

So based on the NHL rules, "If more than two clubs are tied, the higher percentage of available points earned in games among those clubs, and not including any "odd" games, shall be used to determine the standing.", the Senators make it as the 6th seed, the Rangers the 7th seed and the Islanders the 8th seed.
