It would have made a difference in the standings, but not a drastic one I don't think.

edit: which, holy crap. I hadn't looked at RNH's numbers in a while... god damn did dude fall off a cliff last year
It's not just the goals they would have scored. You also have to factor the goals they would have created. Say the Oilers score 15 more goals, and win 5 more games, that puts them in a tie for the 8th seed
