To further expand we can finish at most with 68 points putting us one point behind Boston for 5th worst f they don't even win another game. If Columbus, Washington, Chicago and St. Louis all don't win another game we will be at best #1 and at worst #6. I want to be in the top 4 which requires a bottom 3 finish because there are 4 players (Johnson, Kessel, Towes and Staal) who are better than everyone else.
Some more numbers:
Columbus = 63/9 games left
Washington = 58/10 games left
Chicago = 57/10 games left
St. Louis = 53/10 games left
Chicago and Columbus play each other 3 times before the end of the season knocking one of them out of reach to make us at worst 4th. The Blues also play Chicago and Columbus one time each.
I stand corrected.. I was looking at the wrong column.
Pens have 9 games left, if they go ~.500 5-4 they'd have 60 points.
Blues have 10 games left. 3-7 would leave them with 59 points.
'Hawks have 10 games left 1-9 would leave them with 59 points.
Caps have 10 games left 0-9-1 would leave them with 59 points.
Columbus has 9 games left, losing all 9 (0-9) still gives them 63 points.
