That's nothing.. I remember when there were no trapezoids behind the nets!

:P

I was playing some puck with these polar bears once back in 1885, next thing I know, boom.
Bears are all hopped up on cocaine, drinkin sod-y, and wearin scarves.

True story.
Also.
do we have a magic number yet?

6. If we win 6 of our last 7 we're in no matter what anyone else does.

11 points (or 6 wins as noted above) Best the Caps can do is 95 points and we have the tiebreak.

I don't think so either, but 6 is that magical win number that if we hit everyone else can win out and we're in. Well 5 and an ot loss would do it too. With Boston saying they're gonna rest some key guys before the playoffs I think the only game I've written off as a loss is the St Louis game. So yeah I agree, we're going to make the playoffs. Incredible.

The Buffalo and Carolina games are my concern. Losing either of those could be catastrophic. You'd have to think those teams would love the chance to contribute to ending the streak. Wings gotta be on their toes and play complete games.

Realistically I think we've gotta be shooting for 92 points to get in. With 7 games left, and the way they've been playing receecntly, combined with their remaining games against the Stars, Devils, Blues, Hawks and Lightning, I'm not sure the Caps will even get to 92. Does anyone else see them getting 5+ wins out of their remaining schedule? I don't think I do.

 

Personally I just hope we can finish this week with winning 2 out of 3. Maybe then I could relax a little.

Washington can win out and earn 93 points.
Toronto, New Jersey, and Ottawa can win out and each earn 92 points. Toronto would have the most regulation wins of those three with 42, Ottawa would have 39 and New Jersey would have 38.
Carolina can end the season with as much as 89 points, the Islanders can earn 84. Everyone else is mathematically eliminated.
Presently the Wings are at 84 points with seven games (14 potential points) remaining. If Washington wins out they will have 40 regulation/OT wins, which means that 4 regulation wins and a single OT loss from the Red Wings won't cut it to guarantee a spot just yet, because the Capitals would still have the upper hand due to more regulation/OT wins. So as of midnight on April 2 it looks like the magic number is 10 points, in any combination of Wings victories or points that Washington leaves on the table.

nope still 9 points any way you slice it, if washington wins out, all we need is 2 more regulation  wins and 9 points, that would bring us to 93 points, with 32 row, vs. the caps 93 points with 31 row(if they winn ALL their remaining games in reg/ot) and all others behind them... 9 points is the magic number

You're ROW numbers are off. You're giving total wins.

 

NJ Can get to 38, Ott to 34, Tor to 33, Was to 31.

 

So 9 pts so long as two of the wins are regulation/ot.

Gettin there

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".

Accoding to sportsclubstats if everything goes our way tonight we'll have a 100.4% chance of making the playoffs. Seems legit.

Does this extra 0.4% mean we get the cup handed directly because of our playoffspot-securing-awesomeness ?

We need 3 more points to clinch, less if Jersey, Washington and Toronto lose again. So 1-2-1 is good enough to clinch.

Edit: Incorrectly assumed we had five games left.
