Because there weren't an even amount of home and away games between us, the Senators first home game isn't counted (because the Sens had more points in the season series, you take away the winners first home game). That was a win. So it comes to the two in the Island, which the Sens won one and lost one in a shootout. The Sens in those two games got three points, while the Islanders got two. So the Sens win the tiebreaker.

Against the Rangers, we swept the season series three games, with one being in a shootout. Ironically, the shootout game wouldn't count for the same reasons the Sens win against the Islanders at home won't, so it gets thrown away. The Sens got 4/4 points, while the Rangers got 0/4. We win the tiebreaker there.

As Manked said, we control our own destiny. With the chance now to tie the NYI/NYR in points and win the tiebreakers, going 3-0-0 would get into the sixth seed.
I read it as you take away the first home game of the team that had more. So the first one @ the ilse. So counting one home game each. Seems fairer overall. Same overall result, home win and a SOL.
