Seems like there are four teams fighting for three playoff spots. So I put this out to you. Which team is the odd man out?

Prediction: Rangers fall apart, Tortorella still has his job next season.

Rinse and repeat.

Jets. I see the standings finishing out exactly as they are now.

I see Jets missing by a point, unfortunately.

Then we win the cup next year.

RED = Playoff Teams
BOLD = Key Matchups


Rangers schedule is incredibly easy to close out the season, so I'd say they are a lock.
Has to be between Ottawa and Winnipeg. Ottawa up 4 points and game in hand, but also has the toughest schedule. Looks to me Winnipeg has a better shot at catching Washington.

Playing against playoff teams that have already made the playoffs doesn't always result in a difficult opponent.

This "strength of schedule" thing at the end of the season usually ends up being a crapshoot.

You have terrible teams playing spoiler and gifted teams taking their foot off the gas.

That's not to say that Ottawa is a lock, I just don't think that it has that much of an impact.

I agree

I can see NYR falling apart, even though they have been getting points they haven't really looked all that good.

I'm just wondering if this will come down to the last game of the season or if it will be decided before the last game.

I meant to vote "Rangers" but accidentally voted "Jets"

I'd love to see them make it, but I voted for the Jets. They're already on the outside looking in and have played more games than 2 of the teams they're trying to catch. The team they're closest to (the Rangers) also have an incredibly easy schedule the rest of the way.
