IF the Oil take both games against the Flames this week they could be looking very good!

One point out right now!

Agreed 8-4-2 is what they need. Hopefully none of the wins in the shootout.

Sweep the Flames. 6-4-2 looks very doable.

Keep playing like they did tonight and a big winning streak could be in the cards.

Need to win all 3 against the flames. Need to win against Phoenix to have a chance.

We play Anaheim 3 times. Need to win once. It's a tough road but I believe

Then we're back to vancouver
So if we beat cgy x2 then van again we'll be on a 6 game winning streak
Also our last 9 games are home games i think

Going to be real tough to go 9-5 or 8-4-2 but there is a chance, a hope

7 of the last 9 are at home. Still a positive to help with the playoff push.

The last 2 of Anaheim games are back to backs at home and are almost at the end of the season. At that point, Anaheim might not be playing for much if Chicago is able to pull away and clinch 1st and Anaheim is locked into the #2 seed.

We need to win at least two of our 4 road games coming up, as well as winning the next game against Calgary. If we can beat the flames and say the kings then things will be looking good. 7 of the remaining 9 at home and a few of our last games might have players pulled to rest up for the playoffs.

One way of looking at their situation right now is that they have as much of a chance of making the playoffs as any of the other teams not currently in the top 8.

They win one more game than St. Louis and the rest of the teams they're fighting against, they're in.

i totally read that wrong, but yeah you're right we play teams like chicago and anaheim in our last few so hopefully those are easy wins for us if we are determined enough.

San Jose wouldn't be looking so hot without their 6 shootout wins. That is the only thing separating us right now.

Well, the good news is if we tie the Sharks for eighth somehow, we'll get in because we'd have to have more ROW (regular+ot wins).

Huge games to watch: Chicago v. Detroit, Anaheim v. Dallas, and Minnesota v. St Louis.

Anaheim v Dallas happens 3 times.

If Anaheim plays like Anaheim should, Those should be 3 Anaheim wins. Here's hoping.

hate to break it to you but we arent chasing the sharks. they are probably out of reach.

phoenix on the other hand is 1 point behind us (even though we have a game in hand). i dont know about you but im happy competing with just columbus, detroit, nashville and st. louis. we dont need to add phoenix to the mix.

We could still hop the sharks, theres over a quarter of the season left! All it would take is a losing streak or a winning streak by the oilers.
