This isn't a magic number or even a mathematical clinch considering other teams' games against each other... but according to sportsclubstats' thousands of simulations, the Pens could lose every remaining game in regulation and still have less than a 0.1% chance of missing the playoffs now that they won this afternoon.

Carry on with the magic number, though.

How is the division 9? Devils can end up with 28 more points for a total of 66 points. Pens need 67 to out do that therefore they magic number is 11. Or, am I missing something?

I may be seeing things but looks like with Winnipeg and the Rangers losing today the MN has fallen to 7?

I'm still counting 9 . Carolina has 34 points and 15 games left so they can hit 64.

Right, but they are the 3 seed in max points, Winnipeg max is 62

Interesting enough, if we get the record streak we will also clinch the playoffs since the Rags and Jets both can't get 2 points tonight too.

Presidents trophy is 27 points. Unfortunately there are only 24 points available. Hawks need to drop a few for a chance at that.

Next ROW clinches tiebreaks on NJ and NYI; they both play tonight, so the Pens will secure a ROW tiebreak on one of them tonight, both if it goes to a shootout. (They both are max 26 ROWs, Pens current total. Pens control head to head on NYI, not so much on NJ right now)

MN down to 6 (NYI max 61); Division at 8 (NJ & NYR max 63)

Effective division lead now 17 points with the Devils losing their game in hand. As noted above, Islanders can only tie the Pens current ROW total, and Pens hold the head to head on them, so it could be argued that the MN for a playoff spot may actually be 5. Winnipeg fell to max 60 points, tied with Washington in that regard.

Pens need 5, have the 3rd tiebreaker with the Isles in head-to-head points:
