Oh boy, last night. Detroit beat Carolina (of course), but Ottawa scored in the last two minutes to force OT and then won in OT over Pittsburgh.
All three other teams played a game last night. Of course, between the three, they got the maximum amount of points. So, here's the table. Remember, it's sorted by maximum possible points left:
|EC3||Detroit Red Wings||80||42||25||13||97||38||4||101||--||4||3||2|
Only the Bruins play tonight, of the group.
|4/8/2015||8:00:00 PM||Boston Bruins||@||Washington Capitals|
|4/9/2015||7:00:00 PM||Ottawa Senators||@||New York Rangers|
|4/9/2015||7:30:00 PM||Detroit Red Wings||@||Montreal Canadiens|
|4/9/2015||7:30:00 PM||Boston Bruins||@||Florida Panthers|
|4/10/2015||7:00:00 PM||Pittsburgh Penguins||New York Islanders|
|4/11/2015||12:30:00 PM||Ottawa Senators||@||Philadelphia Flyers|
|4/11/2015||7:00:00 PM||Detroit Red Wings||@||Carolina Hurricanes|
|4/11/2015||7:00:00 PM||Pittsburgh Penguins||@||Buffalo Sabres|
|4/11/2015||7:30:00 PM||Boston Bruins||@||Tampa Bay Lightning|
The Bruins can still get in a bunch of different ways. 2 wins in the next three games guarantees them 99 points and a spot.
- 3-0-0: In
- 2-0-1: In
- 2-1-0: In
- 1-0-2: In (If Bruins get ROW for that 1 win. If Senators get 2 more ROW wins and Bruins win in SO, Senators will get in on goal differential.)
- 1-1-1: In if Senators fail to win out.
Actually, let's just look at every possible scenario to finish out the season, shall we? Go crazy:
Winning tonight goes a loooooong way towards making the playoffs. Through 2 games so far, Washington is the only team to not allow a goal against the Bruins. I'd say we're due.
