Down to 8 with 11 games left.

It's now mathematically impossible to finish 15th

a 2-8 finish is all it takes to make the playoffs?

And that's if the 9th place team doesn't lose any points from here on.

A NJ loss vs Buffalo tomorrow would bring the magic number down to 3.

I understand the point of this thread, but at 55 points the Habs are in. Even if the Devils go 8-2, Montreal still wins based off of regulation wins.

A better thread at this point would be a magic number for top 4 and a magic number for division winner.

Magic number for top4 is 12 with 10 games left to play. So top 4 is almost a lock too.

To close with Boston for the division number to be counted though.

Statistically if Habs lose every remaining game in regulation, odds of making the playoffs are now 99.9%. Otherwise, considering possible outcomes of games played against one another by other Eastern Conference teams, Habs are in.

Down to 2 points.

We have 55 points. NJ and WPG can both max out at 56 points. But WPG has 19 ROWs to our 22, so in a scenario where we lose out and WPG wins out and at least 4 of those are ROWs, they would finish ahead of us. So we need 2 points.

We need help from Ottawa and we need to crush them in our last 2 games against them.

If Ottawa wins tonight they'll only be 3 points back of the Leafs and they have one more game against them.

So 14 = n * (.721 + .485) * 2 or n=7/1.206
n = 5.8
So in 6 games = April 11th against Buffalo

or can also use NJD (assuming a team will outpace the NYR)
7/(.721+.442)= 7/1.163 = 6.01 games

Edit:
I assume that 14 more points puts us in PO for sure...
Edit-2:
14 points seems good: we are 14 points ahead with 14 games to play.
Edit-3:
Using NJD means 18 as a magic number...
so 9/1.163 = 7.738 = 8
So between 6 to 8 games...
So I called it!

The Leafs to finish in 6th or 8th would realistically avoid a 1st round playoff match. The Islanders are tied with the Sens and also 3 back of the Leafs.
