Amazing 3 pt spread between first 6 teams. Isles have 2 games at hand on MTL. If they win those 2 plus thursday's game against them, that puts the Isles a possible 3 pts up. BOS is also playing great with 2 big wins following the Isles series.
With the Isles tie against LA, they have 64 Points and 26 games remaining.
If the Isles go any combination of .500 the rest of the way they will finish with 90 points for the year.
Traditionally that has been enough to get a team into the playoffs. With that said I'm still hoping the Isles hit 95+ points. Looking at the fact that the Isles would only need several games over .500 to achieve that, it doesn't seem so far fetched.
Just realized Isles only have 24 games left! However, they still have a good control of their destiny they just need to follow up on it.
