Playoff Picture April 9, 2015: It's exactly two games to that railroad crossing

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Only one game happened last night that affects the Bruins' playoff chances, and the Bruins went ahead and lost it. Great job, jerks. Let's run through this, shall we?

The Table

The table and I have a love-hate thing going on. I created it, but it is throwing a tantrum and showing the Bruins in a bad light. Anyways, here it is. Remember, it's sorted by maximum possible points left:

Place Team GP W L OTL PTS ROW Pot Max Det Pit Bos Ott
EC3 Detroit Red Wings 80 42 25 13 97 38 4 101 -- 3 3 2
WC1 Pittsburgh Penguins 80 42 26 12 96 38 4 100 5 -- 3 3
WC2 Boston Bruins 80 41 26 13 95 37 4 99 6 5 -- 4
Out Ottawa Senators 80 41 26 13 95 35 4 99 6 5 4 --

Clinching Scenarios

If we win out, we still get in. Especially if one of those wins is a ROW. If not, it gets...complicated. We now go to a live feed of the Stanley Cup of Chowder staff trying to figure it all out:
