probably doesn't make that much of a difference yet but you got 2 underachieving teams chasing you you don't want to keep both of them within reaching distance especially because both need to pass us and not just 1.
I want to get as far away from the Rangers as we can get, so go Philly
Philly. Rangers have 3 games in hand and only 6 points behind, meaning if they win all 3 they are tied with us. But Philly has no games in hand and is 5 points behind, meaning they cannot catch us in point%.
Tonight's pick (or teams that should win for Leafs to have a better chance):
Tampa Bay @ New Jersey fairly obvious, NJ is much closer.
Montreal @ NY Islanders nothing more obvious than this. Too bad not much hope here
Boston @ Washington I was wrong earlier. Nothing is more obvious than this one for sure Buffalo @ Carolina Buffalo can't pick top 5 in this draft Philadelphia @ NY Rangers Both teams pose danger. Funny thing is, regardless of who wins, Leafs playoff chance improves by 0.1% acc to sportsclubstats website. Rangers are more than point per game, so we want Philly to win
Winnipeg @ Florida Injured Florida less of a threat than Winnipeg
