I think its safe to say that if pittsburgh wins 14 straight games they would own the tiebreaker of ROW

Well if they won 14 straight, I don't think it would be safe to say they would all be won in regulation or OT because 9 of their 43 wins came in a shootout. 9 out of 43 is about 21%, so if they keep up that pace and win 14 more games, almost 3 of those wins would be won in a shootout. Obviously no one could predict exactly what will happen, but nothing is "safe to say."

Dates don't matter. Basically: 2 more wins and a loss by the Jets and Sabres, we clinch.

At this point the only thing we need to be concerned with is winning the division, and therefore the conference.

Countdown to 100 points & playoff berth

It's just coincidental that 100 and clinching the playoffs are the same for us right now. But it sure feels nice to (presumably) reach that threshold since 2006.

Postseason appearances in 6 of the past 7 years, all hail Sather?

With the win last night, only 3 more points to clinch.

I believe if you look at the 8th seed on the table from the 1st page, it determines how many more points we need to clinch.

If Buffalo and Winnipeg both lose tonight and we win tomorrow, we clinch.

Yep. Next to every seed on the right it says how many points we need for that seed.

Ah, it makes sense now...

I though the points needed to clinch the seed were for the team next to that number (i.e. Washington needs 3, etc.)

Thanks for the clarification.

So what's the situation now? Buffalo lost in a SO tonight so they got 1 point. Winnipeg won as well. So now how do we clinch as soon as possible?

Magic number is still 3 to clinch, because Winnipeg will have 74 points with 12 games left, so a max of 98 points.

However, Buffalo can only max out at 97 now with tonight's OTL.

Too bad those two teams don't play each other again, as that would make the number even smaller.

Updated to include the boring NHL Wednesday.

I'll add Total Possible ROWs to the table tomorrow to help any confusion there may be towards the tiebreaker.

Essentially, One of two situations need to happen for us to clinch

1) we win 2 more games this season

2) we win 1 more game and winnipeg loses 1 more game

I prefer we go with #1 starting with tonight

We need three points, not four.

At a minimum, 1 win and an OT/SO loss.

Updated to include games on 3/17.

I had to remove the President's Trophy because we don't control our own destiny for it.
