Tiebreaker
1. The fewer number of games played (i.e., superior points percentage).
2. The greater number of games won.
3. The greater number of points earned in games between the tied clubs. If two clubs are tied, and have not played an equal number of home games against each other, points earned in the first game played in the city that had the extra game shall not be included. If more than two clubs are tied, the higher percentage of available points earned in games among those clubs, and not including any "odd" games, shall be used to determine the standing.
4. Goal differential

Some sites follow different rules throughout the season when it comes to standings. Some will put the team with fewer games played first, another will put wins, etc.

It also depends on the sources bias. The Gazette puts Montreal ahead of NJ even though NJ is ahead technically. Doesn't mean they are official standings.

Edit: Even TSN now has Montreal ahead of NJ but we all know that if the season ended right now NJ would be the one in 6th and the Habs would be in 7th.

Why not check the official standings on NHL website? The Tie Breaking Procedure is well explained as well...

Raider's tie-breakers are taken directly from NHL.com's website. If other sites don't follow these tie-breakers they are simply wrong.

At the end of the season, point #1 is irrelevant and #3 becomes simpler.

i believe NJ has clinched 6th at least now. they are 44-27-9 and montreal are 42-29-9. the records can even out at 44-29-9 if NJ lose to phi then to montreal. that would take it to the season series? NJ will have won it regardless of the final game if thats the case.


there is a way Montreal can get 6th still though. if Phily lose to NJ then to NYI and NYR and Montreal win out the pts would be even at 97 but Montreal would have 44 wins and philly would still have 43.

Exactly, and the Habs would be 6th. Habs would hold the tiebreaker in wins and in head to head matchups. Habs won the season series 3-1 and the game the Habs lost was in OT so they got 7 out of 8 available points vs Philly.

It would be really odd if the Flyers lost out and the Habs won out to finish 6th.
But that is unrealistic, let us just hope for a clinch on Saturday.
