we're currently at the #6 slot:
Canes regulation loss makes the worst possible slot pre-lottery that we can have #5 (pass Calgary due to SO win).
Win or OT/SO loss would put us in #7 pending the outcome of all other games. Best possible slot with either is #6.
Assuming Canes regulation loss and a Tampa win before the SO, we hold the tiebreak for the #4, any other outcome (any TB loss or SO win) and they have the #4 tiebreak.
A Nashville win of any sort would put us in the #4 hole unless we get any kind of point from our game. A combination of the three games outcomes would move us into the #3 spot.
Avs and Panthers are too far back to be in play sans lottery chaos. Flyers are too far ahead to be in play.
