Just a small correction Leidi J, the rangers control what the magic number is at the current moment not the caps. The rangers can max out at 102 pts while the caps can only max out at 100 pts. The best way to do is it just assume everyone in the standings win out and then you see the top 8 point totals to determine what the hard number to clinch is.

Doing that you'd see the east standings like this:
1) Boston- 125
2) Pittsburgh- 122
3) Tampa- 109
4) Montreal- 107
5) Philly- 107
6) Columbus- 106
7) Toronto- 106
8) Detroit- 103
9) NY Rangers- 102

So as you can see 103 is the magic number in the east at the current moment. As it has been said already though the final number to clinch will not be 103 since there is still a lot of head to head match ups and 3 pt games still on the horizon that will skew the number.
