If i am correct, i do believe that if the Wings win in Hab land tonight and the Caps, Leafs and Devils all lose  in

 

regulation have booked a place in the post season.? Only one im iffy on is the Devils, is it head to head on tied

 

points first or is it ROW? Maybe NJ can still match us on points but not sure with the factors that solve tied issue's.

ROW is first tiebreaker, and if NJ were to catch up to us they would most likely have more than we do. At the very least we can eliminate most of the teams we're racing with.

Tiebreakers are:

 

1. ROW

2. Points earned head-to-head

3. Goal differential

93 and we are guaranteed to be in. Lets get that at the very least, and hopefully lets get more so that we can keep 7th seed and play the Pens. If we play the Pens, I like our chances against them and if we advance, we play the winner of Rangers and Philly, which I also like our chances against. So lets hope the Wings keep on rolling right into the playoffs.

Yep.  Looks like everyone is going to win tonight except for us (barring a miracle).

As of right now we have 88 points with 4 games remaining. Columbus has 85 points with 5 games remaining. And the devils has 84 points with 4 games remaining. With Toronto losing tonight they wont catch us and neither will Washington because they have a tough schedule upcoming. Even if Washington won every game left we would only need 3 points in our last 4 to tie them. But they wont win all of them. That leaves NJ and the jackets. This is just me guessing but I say we get 4 more points, jackets get 6 more, and the devils get 5 more point. That would still give us the first wild card. I think for sure we will make the playoffs

We damn well better, or we can look back at all those shootout losses and that last minute collapse against New Jersey about a month back.  At this point, we're the favorites to get in, but anything can happen.  

 

Also, schedule doesn't matter.  In every sport, we see teams with nothing to play for beating teams with everything to play for late in the year.

92 would be pretty safe as it means the Devils would have to win out. However, that isn't too improbable given their remaining schedule. 

 

The Red Wings absolutely have to beat the Sabres and Hurricanes at minimum. Stealing a point at Pittsburgh would really help the cause too. I think the Red Wings will ultimately get in, as they still control their own destiny, but Tuesday's game is massive.

The beginning of the season every year, when we lose a game everyone says "relax, it's just the beginning of the season" and every year around this time we are reminded that every point counts.

I think we will get in no problem. We lost pretty much the exact way we lost to Montreal a little over a week ago. What did we do after that loss where everyone was beside themselves? We won 4 games in a row. 

 

Now, the biggest problem I see is, now that Pav is back, the lines look all out of synch, like no one really knows what eachother are doing. With 4 games left, Babs needs to establish exactly what the lines are going to be. In the 3rd tonight, he demoted Nyquist to the 3rd line and chose to play Franzen and Abby with Pav, which I think is a HUGE mistake. Nyquist is the hottest player on the team and has been scoring goals like mad, you don't give him less playing time. Franzen meanwhile has done absolutely nothing for this team lately, so I want to see him demoted. Go with these lines:

 

Nyquist- Datsyuk- Abby (We need a guy who isn't afraid to go to dirty areas, something Franzen does not do)

Jurco- Sheahan- Tatar (Play them more, no reason to limit their minutes)

Franzen- Legwand- Alfredsson

Glendening- Helm- Miller

 

Also, we NEED to limit the time on ice for Kindl and Lashoff... they are killing us. Kronner can play near 26-27 min along with Danny D, Smitty so that it limits Kindl's ice time. That needs to be done.

Wish some of the vets would step up as well, franzen has been nowhere to be found. as long as Howie is strong in net for the last few, Nyquist keeps being Nyquist, and the kid line just keeps doing what they've done all season we should be fine. But I agree Nyquist being put on the third line was a dumb move

Pretty much.  These are going to be the forward lines the rest of the year.  Zetterberg and Weiss (who?) don't appear to be returning. 

 

Bertuzzi and Cleary aren't likely to see the lineup.

I really think we should go after Ehrhoff in the offseason and dump Quincey. Hopefully some of the D in grand rapids will replace Kindl and Lashoff soon. Marchenko and Oullett are really good but I don't think they are ready just yet. I really hope Weiss's play at the start of the season was him being injured and acquainting with a new team. Maybe he will actually do something when he comes back

Wings will be fine and totally make the playoffs. Montreal got lucky tonight, they get lucky during the regular season, but they will suck in the playoffs mark my words. Pens will have to be a statement game cuz I see the Red Wings playing them in first round and beating them. I really don't see the Wings going farther than the second round, but hey anything can happen. Go Wings 4 Life

If we beat the Pens then we play winner of Philly and Rangers.... Wings can totally have a chance to win that series.... especially with Zetty back by that point.

Agreed, just didn't want to sound too cocky and get too ahead of myself. But yeah Wings will be fine.
