Even though it SUCKED that game went to a shootout, it could have been much worse. At least the Jets didn't win. We've got a point on them and a game in hand. Rangers need to go 3-1, regardless of whether the Jets lost in regulation, OT or the shootout.

Jets play the Sabres, Capitals, Canadiens last 3 games. Can't imagine them winning all 3 of those games.

Assuming Jets go 2-1 in those 3 games, if Rangers go 2-2 next week they'll get in.

We caught plenty of breaks last week. It all balances out. Good teams don't need to worry about the out of town scoreboard anyway. Bottom line is a W tomorrow and our chances of a playoff birth are pretty darn good. Just take care of your own business and it will work out.

Assuming the Sens win their game in hand, we'd be closer to the leafs than Sens point wise. Like someone I the playoff thread said, the first tiebreaker is points. ROW are useless if you have less points

Canadians will have nothing to play for. Will role 4 lines and will probably play backup goalie

Tor (53 pts) remaining games: Ott, TB, Fla, Mon.
Ott (52 pts) remaining games: Tor, Pitt, Was, Phi, Bos
NYR (50 pts) remaining games: NJD, Car, Fla, NJD

Unless Tor ***** the bed they're looking (at worst) a 2-2 record in their final 4 games. Leaving them with at least 57 points.

Ott has won their last 4 but none of their next 5 are gimmes at all.

Unless NYR ***** the bed they're looking (at worst) a 3-1 record in their final 4 games. Leaving them with at least 56 points.

Ott has to face Tor - who is at this point desperate, Pitt - who is back to regular Pitt hockey, Was - who is hot AND desperate, Phi - who can surprise a team who takes them for granted, and Bos - who has hatred for Ott and also will be playing hard for that #2 seed.

Root for Ott to lose. Them sliding is far more likely than Tor sliding.

Yes maybe. Maybe it won't matter by then. But they will not sacrifice the playoffs between 2 or 4 seed.

Forget getting in. You want to avoid the Pens at all cost going into round 1. Crosby, Malkin, and possibly even Neal will all be back and healthy enough to play. Refs are also disgusting in the playoffs in favor of the Pens. Need to avoid at all costs in round 1. I'm hoping the Islanders get them and sweep them.

Well S/O win for Islanders hands tie breaker advantage back to the Rangers, that is sort of worth 1 point

I worry about getting into the playoffs, before I start scouting potential 1st round matchups.

Leafs are 99% in the PO. Leafs are also close to 80%+ to not yield to us.

But if you can control both...? If Rangers have ability to do more they shouldn't coast, is my point.

Of all the teams, I'm looking for WSH to fall out of place. We're destined for 7th 8th or 9th so I'm not worried about the leafs.

While we've been 5-2-0 in the last 7, we've gained no ground at all on anyone, that's 4 teams. Crazy.
Just shows you can't depend on any other teams to do any favors. you guys will be fine with the teams your going against

Price does not rank in the top tier of goaltenders. Some games he can be absolutely wonderful, but taken over a longer sample size, he just does not steal enough games for his team.
