If Philly and Pittsburgh (ugh) win tonight, that will bump the Wings back into the 50% territory. 

And so they did! 51.4% now, tomorrows game will be absolutely huge for us.

I was 13 when they last missed the playoffs. I am... old now. I have to be honest these must win games over the last couple of years have been exciting. I'll take those over a dominant regular season team that flounders in the 1st round. 


I wasn't even thought of yet..

I was a third grader when the Blackhawks broomed us 4-0 (each game was 4-2) in 1970.   Didn't sniff the playoffs again until 1978.   If you would have told me in 1979... when we sucked again...that 35 years later we'd be in  the midst of a playoff streak that can legally walk into a bar and order a shot of hard liquor, I would have thought you were nuts

Born in '89 I can't remember the wings not being in the playoffs and I'll be damned if I start making that memory. So count on me being blackout drunk if we're statistically eliminated so I can pretend it never happened ;)

I was...11 when the playoff streak started?

I feel old. I remember going to games with my dad when they were just coming out of the Dead Things era. So exciting! Breaks my heart that the Joe will be gone when I start thinking about stuff like that. I still go to games with my dad every December when I come home. Hard to think of that being somewhere else. :(

Toronto's odds down to 6.5% haha

Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".

So you're saying there's a chance!


This might be getting a little heated. Just know I don't hate any of you guys.

 

That doesn't mean that I respect ideas & opinions. Some ideas & opinions are ridiculous.

 

In fact, if you confront my ideas & opinions, that will lead to a discussion. (We're on a discussion board after all. Don't forget that!)

Don Cherry said we would make the Playoffs this year and I believe him. Are Team is playing great. i Believe they've got a 95% Chance because the Red Wings ARE World's Greatest NHL Team ever!!

Why am I not surprised someone who believes in Don Cherry used are instead of our?  just having fun I am not a grammar nazi

 

The Wings have better make the playoffs.  I have had them eliminated twice in my mind now and they keep bringing me back.  I would be crushed if they missed out now.

Sportsclubstats numbers are odd at times.

 

According to the site the Leafs enter tomorrow nights game vs Calgary with a 4.6% chance to make the playoffs.

 

Should the lose in regulation those odds drop by 3.6% leaving them a 1% chance.

 

Should Columbus also win that would drop the Leafs chances by 1% leaving them at 0 despite not being officially eliminated.

 

Even worse, should Washington win their game tomorrow the Leafs odds drop another .5% leaving them with negative odds to make the dance, with a Philadelphia win dropping them further by .1 %.

 

So if things go perfectly against them they will have a -.6% chance of making the playoffs despite being only 4 pts back with 5 games to play. I don't disagree that the Leafs odds are ridiculously long but those numbers seem out of whack.
