So what does it take fo the Wings to lock up a playoff spot? I'm lazy and I don't feel like lookin it up. Anyone? Bueller? Edit-nm Xym's post explained it.
1/Win in Boston, doesn´t matter if Reg/OT or shootout. B91(or92)-D95 and it´s over.
If not then in case of (assuming 2pts row for Bruins against Sens):
2/Detroit L - we need to ROW in NYR (95/95, but better ROW for Wings, as we´re 2 row-s ahead of them right now)
3/Detroit LOT - (B93/D94) we need to ROW in NYR (Bruins would equalize ROW with Sens, which is hell of a tie-break for us)
4/Detroit L in shootout - we need ONE POINT from NYR. Bos won´t get row from this match and 2pts with Sens will equalize points, but keep them one row behind.
5/ All other potential options, but low percentage chance - Bruins will loose to Sens, Flyers will burn in their last few games (even equalizing our 93 points won´t help them with worst row) and of course - we will smack Bolts(which itself means we will get three points somehow what will get us in in all scenarios).
Hope that´s correct.
