Flyers only 3 points out of 8th. Problem for them is they've played more games than anyone. 8th place Rangers have 3 points and 3 games in hand on them.
Caps are actually more in the playoff picture than the Flyers right now as they are on the lower end of games played despite being 5 points out of the 8 seed.
Despite the ridiculous point streak Chicago would only be up 4 points on the Ducks if Anahiem wins their 2 games in hand.
Crosby is up 3 on Stamkos for the points lead with equal games played. St Louis is in 3rd and 7 points behind Sid.
Last but not least: don't look now but Alex Semin is a +18, tied for 2nd with Kunitz in the department. Useless stat or not, looks like the change of scenery was good for him. Getting props from his teammates for his work ethic. Still wish we pursued him more
