That's not a tie breaker since there's no tie.

No ****. Again, I was informing the other poster that he was mistaken when he said we didn't control our own destiny over the isles with a win tonight.

Would like to see:
Pittsburgh - Isles
Montreal - Ottawa
Washington - NYR
Boston - Toronto

Chicago - Detroit
Anaheim - San Jose
Vancouver - Columbus
LA - Phoenix

Fat chance in the west though

Last 7 games 5-1-1

7 games left

PHI(a) - W (Philly playing in Montreal the day before - lost last 4)
FLA (h)- W (Florida cannot make playoffs)
BUF(a) - W/L
NJD (h) - W (not the greatest form - weak without Kovalschuk)
CAR (a)- W (could be out already when this game played)
FLA (a) - W
NJD (h) - W (weakest away team in the NHL this season)

60/58 points total - spot 6 ? In that case WSH 1st round
I think it would be better to meet MTL or BOS

Best I see Buffalo.....48pts
Best I see Jersey......50pts (split with Rangers, lose to Montreal or Pit)
Best I see Winnipeg...52pts(wins over TB and Car, 2-2 against team in playoff fights)

So all it will take for a playoff spot is 7pts, or .500 hockey in the last 7 games IMO.

As much as I understand people looking to a sixth place finish and playing Washington I'd be perfectly happy facing the Penguins in round one. Maybe take advantage of there injury situation, but everyone has injuries this year.

Washington, Boston, Pittsburgh, Montreal... any one of them would be tough, but the team gained some valuable experience last year.

I honestly think if we make it in, Nash will go on an absolute tear. He's waited his entire career for a real playoff opportunity (outside of the one year CLB got crushed by Detroit in 4).

Washington's won 7 straight.

Ovechkin on pace for 50+ goals.

Backstrom PPG center.

Holtby playing like playoff form.

Elite defensive defensemen Carlson, Alzner. And solid complimentary offensive d-man in Green

I think they may be the hottest team heading into the playoffs and could be the team to beat.

7th seed vs. Boston is ideal.

Yeah but Montreal is still ahead of Boston, and playing Montreal would be the worst of all scenarios.

Totally agree! At home would be confident we could beat in Montreal, but in Montreal I would have no confidence at all! Would Rather play Boston cause we match up better. Any of those three (wash, montreal, boston) would be difficult, but playing in Montreal would be the toughest task.

I'm still confident we can make the Playoffs. However, given our schedule, if we don't I'll be mightily pissed. No excuses. Beat the ****ing PANTHERS 2 times, get a point out of BUF (I'm not even speculating with a win there), beat the Canes, split with Newark and we should be good. All teams worse than the Rangers. Get it done or I want the team to have miserable summer.

And the Rangers had a sleep walking effort in Philadelphia. I think that neutralizes the Panthers losing streak.

But wait - Rangers odds to win tonight -255. If you are not familiar with odds thats a huge favorite. Odds that high are pretty rare. Pendulum swinging back towards Panthers...

Makes sense to bet on the Panthers for that payout. I wonder what it was last game.

If we lose tonight, we don't deserve to be in the playoffs.

What if they lose tonight, and win the next five?

Whatever happens you just get the vibe that the team has already quit on Tortorella

You mean the next 3? This team hasn't won 4 in a row all year if im not mistaken. Usually I am always optimistic but just not this year. It seems as if everything is just not there. Minus Hank ofcourse but thats a given.

sportsclubstats.com says Winnipeg's chances for the playoffs are 39.4% and the Rangers chances are 83.5%. The odds are clearly in the Rangers favor - but it just doesnt feel like its that much of a spread.

After taking a look at some numbers on that site, it seems apparent that a 3-2 record should almost definitely get us in, while a 2-3 record would put the odds below 50%. Of course those numbers improve if any of the losses are OTLs. Obviously we need to win every game we can here, but these last 5 games feel something like a Best of 5 series.

Those percentages do not make sense. If we lose tonight Winnipeg controls their own destiny, not us...we'd have to hope for outside help.

Well we haven't lost tonight yet, have we? The chances of us not getting a point tonight against a weak (statistically) Sabres team, are slim. These percentags also take into account the fact that we have the easiest schedule on paper out of all the teams fighting for a spot. Sure, you can argue that they're a bit inflated, but statistically speaking, the percentages are not wrong.

Also - to expand a bit on those percentages - Winnipeg only has a 17% chance at the 7 or 8 seed. 22% chance at the 3. The 39% is a combined number.

Define slim? Do you really think the odds are 90% or better in Buffalo tonight for at least an OTL?
