They are now at 87.1%.

6th place (27%) is now more likely than 8th (17%). 7th (32%) is still the most likely.

If we can take 1 of 2 against the Leafs and Devils while beating Florida, then I'd say yes.

There's hope. Hopefully we can avoid Pens and Habs in the first round.

I voted no, but it is certainly looking more like a yes. It feels good to be wrong.

We should make it with a win in regulation vs. NYI.

Key word: Should

3 home games left--5 road games. Islanders the next game have the best record of all the teams we have left to face. Philadelphia, Buffalo, Carolina, Florida, The Devils twice. It seems very doable. The question is if we do make it who are we going to face? Pittsburgh at least with most of their horses back should eat us alive. Montreal--is one of those teams--Ottawa is another no matter how good or bad they are they always seem to beat us.

Ideally if we get to the 7th seed and Boston holds their division lead, I think that'd be our best bet, especially with Boston undermanned at the moment.

6th seed is now the most likely outcome (31%). 7th is close with 30%.

A win on LI would really help our case. 4-3 the rest of the way after that should be enough to make it. As for who we face it's still wide open...hard to know whether it will be pitt, montreal, boston, wash or winnipeg.

vs CAR
vs TB
vs TOR
@ OTT
@ MTL
vs WPG
vs OTT
vs BOS

should be able to win 5-6 games. Not a really tough schedule, esp with the way they're playing lately. 54 - 56 points.



@ PHI
@ NJD
@ BOS
vs CAR
vs WSH
vs TOR
vs PIT
@ WSH
@ PHI

with the way they're playing lately, .500 seems optimistic for them. Not an easy schedule. 52 - 54 points.



@ BOS
vs NYR
vs FLA
@ TOR
@ WPG
@ CAR
@ PHI
@ BUF

5 road games to end the regular season. Tough, but last 3 very winnable against teams that could be done by then. 53 - 55 points.



vs FLA
vs TB
vs CAR
vs NYI
@ BUF
@ WSH
vs MTL

Should win 4 home games out of 5 to have chances. Will miss the POs, unfortunately. 49 - 52 points.



vs OTT
@ TOR
@ PHI
vs FLA
@ NYR
vs PIT
vs MTL
@ NYR

Don't look good right now, but: Never underestimate the Devils. Closing out over .500. Because they're the Devils. 50 points.



@ NYI
@ PHI
vs FLA
@ BUF
vs NJD
@ FLA
@ CAR
vs NJD

Win the games you should win and get 10 points, but we've seen those games before. SE trip is huge. 52 - 56 points (guessing a wider margin, because we're inconsistent. I have a feeling we could go on a tear or lose 3 straight.)

I hope the last game isn't going to be a must win. Win 2 very winnable games on the road to avoid this. Having to beat the Devils 2 times within a week gives me the creeps.
The good thing is, 4 points right now seems like a pretty big margin. But I've been fooled before.

Last 8 games gave 4-3-1

But it has been a very tough schedule. Pittsburg (2), Toronto (2), Montreal, Ottawa, Winnipeg and Carolina

With the remaining schedule (8 games) much easier I believe 6-2 is a fair prediction
Totally 56 points. But I cannot see they do worse than 5-3 (54 points)

Marc Staal back soon could give the team a lift also

New Jersey seems lost without Kovalchuk. Its a team the Rangers should overcome

88% to make the playoffs seems fair to me

You're reading that wrong, probability wise 7th is more likely.

The odds for 5/6/7/8 is 6% / 31% / 30% / 21%

So the Rangers have a 37% chance of finishing 5th or 6th, and a 51% chance of
finishing 7th or 8th (and another 11% chance of finishing 9,10,11 - so really
a 63% chance of finishing below 6th).

It's going to come down to how much the team wants it, and based on the
season so far I'm not optimistic. But you never know, they could step on
the gas and become motivated all of a sudden

Unhestly, do you see the Rangers get out of the first round (if they'll make it?) I don't!!! Unfortunately the experiments not always work for this team. I voted No. I hope they proof me wrong.

Rangers traded depth ( Dubinsky, Anisimov) to Columbus for Rick Nash, then traded Marian Gaborik to Columbus for depth.

The big question now is what kind of an impact these new players will have. Moore is a good-skating defenseman, which the Rangers are perpetually looking for, and adds some depth to a defensive corps that had a less than spectacular third pair even before Marc Staal's injury. And Brassard, who's scored as many as seventeen goals and 47 points in the season, hopefully adds some stability up the middle. (Dorsett, another addition, is out for the season.)

Meanwhile in a separate trade they acquired Ryan Clowe from the Sharks. In theory, he is a good fit for a Tortorella team: He's physical and has the ability to score twenty-something goals. The Rangers were banking on Clowe breaking out of his season-long scoring slump, and he already has, scoring twice in his debut with the team.

In fact, all of the newbies contributed immediately when Rangers scored 6 against Pitsburg on April 3rd with Clowe scoring twice and adding an assist, Brassard scoring a goal with three assists, and Moore scoring a goal. Of course, that kind of production won't last. If Clowe, Brassard, and Moore average eight points a night, they'll cruise to the Stanley Cup in 16 games )) But we all hope is that this year's teams model is better resembles last year's successful team. Every season we all hope for the better one. Only time will tell.

Playoff odds now 94%. It's an omen.

Devils now 1.4% and Flyers 0.1%. Not omens, but still fun to look at.
