The Sharks can essentially clinch the division in the next 6 games.

I was looking at the standings this morning and found this out:

The First place Sharks have 77 Points in 47 games, ~1.64 standings points per game.
the 2nd place Coyotes have 53 points in 50 games, 1.06 standings points per game.

With their current points/game pace:

The Coyotes would finish the season with 87 points.

The Sharks would only need 10 more points to tie that, making them able to esentially clinch the division in 6 games with their current pace.

These stats are only projections however, Phoenix Dallas and Anaheim can go on a major winning streak which could change a lot of things, but I find this quite amazing.

Most likely Sharks will get atleast .500 the rest of the season which will mean that with 35 games remaining, and 35 points plausible, we'll easily finish with atleast 112 points, which is pretty freaking incredible considering we're holding a 0.819 winning/otl percentage and 0.500 is a giant step down. I think we might be looking at the 125+ range.

What's the record for largest margin of victory in a division? The banner after this season should say "Sharks, PAC division Champs... and it's not close."

And since we're chatting about numbers, this site I worth checking out...it's updated often:

It looks like it's gonna be a really fun race for 8th. It looks like the Sharks have already won the conference .

What it looks like is Sharks can clinch a playoff spot and division title with 11 more wins based on that site Thresher showed us. They need 15 wins to clinch #1 seed. Can I get a second on this?

Looking at the magic numbers chart, in the notes at the bottom it states:

numeric indicates the number of consecutive upcoming games that must be won to guarantee winning this spot

Another view on how close the #5-#11 (51-53 pts) really are.

GF-GA is an interesting stat

The 6, 7 and 8th spot currently belong to teams with a negative number

Sharks need 55 points to tie the record for points by a team in a season. 28 wins in the final 35 games will get them the record. Their remaining schedule is mostly road games and would make such an accomplishment even more impressive. They'll have to go into Boston, New Jersey, Detroit, Montreal, and places where they've had not so much success in like Calgary, Edmonton, Columbus, and Anaheim.

Personally, down the stretch I see them winning 27 of their last 35. It's going to depend on where they lose those 8 games and if they can get a point out of those games in case they don't do as well as I'm thinking...especially because every home game remaining is a win in this assumption of mine and obviously that's not going to happen. lol

I stopped worrying the division a long time ago. It's basically come down to staying ahead of Detroit the rest of the way.

which has the Sharks chances at No.1 overall at 86%...the Bruins, 83%
