In your scenario of 4 wins to Dallas, PHX has to lose 5 points in some scenario for Dallas to clinch. I still agree 4 wins is a reasonable assumption to get in, it's just that 4-1-1 from PHX does not get Dallas in.

Just look at the standings on April 8th and see if we made the playoffs. There, that was easy.

We should probably also all stop talking about line combinations, coaching decision, the draft, free agency, contracts and everything else hockey related because we have no impact on that either.

I don't know how this is boring to you?? I'm on the edge of my seat every night when the teams in the race play. I probably check the standings at least 3 times a day

I don't think Piqued is bored with the playoff race, just with the speculation and "what ifs'"

i sense some sarcasm in there..

Is anyone else a little concerned that the oilers are actually hot at the moment..

We play them Wednesday in a game we have all penciled in for a win, and must win.

IM concerned they may be harder than we think..

We have no one to blame but ourselves if we can't beat Edmonton right now. Don't care how hot they are.

If the Minnesota game last season didn't help them any against facing teams that have "nothing to play for," then we're in a lot bigger trouble than we think.

I'd be wary of Calgary before thinking about Edmonton again.

They'll be out for blood, as if they lose tomorrow, they're done. There's next to no chance of them recovering.

I'm not too concerned. Columbus is just awful. Barely beat Florida, and the Panthers had an awful game. Nashville sucks right now. But win tomorrow, and it's not nearly as big (we still need to win though).

With the loss by the Coyotes tonight, Dallas is really in a good position to get in. Division race is obviously way way way up in the air but playoffs are there for the taking.

Calgary needs to win it even to have a chance to get in. Colorado (1 point back) and Phoenix (even) only have five games remaining, and both have to finish above Dallas as the Stars have the tie breaker.

Definitely looking good, but we can't get complacent.

It was inevitable, but Dallas can't finish below Minnesota ... they've now put 3 firmly in the rear view ... 4 more to go for the playoffs.

They put their first Pacific team officially behind them with a win tomorrow (or some other scenario I don't want to say for fear of a jinx).

How can Anaheim still catch us?

The most points they can get is 87, which we currently stand at. Tiebreaker for ROW I'm guessing?

Yeah instead of trying to predict Dallas and another team's ROW in a couple of weeks ... I just add 1 for the tie breaker.

I'll be more precise when it gets closer. For now, these magic numbers assume Dallas will finish one point ahead ... just like the tragic numbers assume Dallas will finish one point behind.

... and yeah so I double checked anyway on just Anaheim.

If they won out in regulation ... their ROW is 35 which would be better than Dallas assuming the Stars lost every remaining game in regulation.

Yeah at this point ... Dallas isn't far enough ahead of anyone to lock up the tie-breaker .... even Anaheim. So I'll check again in a couple days, but right now every magic number has the +1 so we don't make any assumptions about ROW.

3/26 - Magic Number

Pacific Division Champs
  • Los Angeles = 14
  • San Jose = 14
  • Phoenix = 11
  • Anaheim = 1

Dallas wins Pacific Division if all teams' magic number falls to 0.

Playoffs
  • Los Angeles = 14
  • San Jose = 14
  • Phoenix = 11
  • Colorado = 10
  • Calgary = 9
  • Anaheim = 1
  • Minnesota = 0
  • Edmonton = 0
  • Columbus = 0

When 7 teams magic numbers falls to 0, Dallas will clinch a playoff spot.

Dallas' Tragic Number
  • St. Louis = 0
  • Vancouver = 3
  • Nashville = 6
  • Detroit = 7
  • Chicago = 10
  • Phoenix = 15
  • Los Angeles = 16
  • San Jose = 16
  • Colorado = 16
  • Calgary = 19

When a tragic number falls to 0, Dallas can't catch that team. If 8 teams tragic numbers fall to 0, Dallas misses the playoffs.

A win by Dallas reduces all magic numbers by 2.
A OT/SO loss by Dallas reduces all magic numbers by 1.
A regulation loss by a team on the list reduces the magic number by 2.
A OT/SO loss by a team on the list reduces the magic number by 1.
A win by a team on the list leaves the magic number the same.

Gotta believe they beat Edmonton.
St. Louis may very well have the Central title wrapped up by the last day of the season, so you'd hope they would use their top line guys conservatively in preparation for playoffs.
The Canucks have the division clinched.
Dallas has beaten Nashville by 3 goals this season twice, and Nashville over Dallas once by only 1 goal.
5-1 is the best I could see them doing, with basically a guaranteed loss against San Jose.
Going 3-3 has them at 81.3% for playoffs, and 3-2-1 at 96.2%.

We have to win these next two games. Have to. Then somehow, someway, find a way into overtime against San Jose at the Tank.

We've played well against Nashville this season. Hopefully the Blues will rest some guys for that last game of the season. Really think we need four wins. That San Jose game at the AAC is absolutely a must win. We lose that, we're probably sitting home.

Down to 7th. Thankfully LA lost. Colorado is all but done now really. Most they can get is 90.

Well might as well take it as a good news thing right now. Better get their heads together Wednesday. Wish Reilly was going to be in for that.

so basically it's down to beat Phoenix for 8th.

Looking at their last 5 games vs. ours can't say I'm all that confident. Well maybe the tiebreaker will save us yet.

94. They aren't done, but it's not looking good.
