It's pretty hard to see the Oilers goalies keeping up a 94%+ save percentage as well like they've done over the last 10 games so even if they drift down to a "good" ~92%... that probably means the team has an uphill climb to just get 22 pts in their last 22 games.

The smart money would be on them staying right where they are in 29th... but we never know what could happen down the stretch with injuries/trades etc on all the other teams.

This last qtr of the season is the most intense and tight obviously for teams on the bubble scrambling for playoff spots and the Oilers should theoretically be much looser in their spoiler role the rest of the way. I could see them doing better than expected because they have zippo pressure on them.
