Standings question (hypothetical) If habs were to win tmr night..

Say the Penguins were not playing tomorrow. The Habs are playing Carolina tomorrow night.

If the habs won tommorow night's game by a 2 goal differential, who would be ranked higher?

Pens have 17 gp
Habs would have 17 gp

Pens have 11 wins
Habs would have 11 wins

Habs and pens have not played each other yet so that cancels out also.

Pens have a 10 goal differential between goals scored and allowed, and habs would have a 10 goal differential between goals scored and allowed.

Who would be ranked higher?

I think it then goes by Goals For, followed by Goals Against.

Could be mistaken though

EDIT: Upon further investigation, this would seem to be incorrect on my part. I can't find anywhere that would suggest their are further rules regarding this

Tie-Breaking procedure
If two or more clubs are tied in points during the regular season, the standing of the clubs is determined in the following order:

* The fewer number of games played (i.e., superior points percentage).
* The greater number of games won.
* 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.
* The greater differential between goals for and against for the entire regular season.
