    Default Magic Number Thread

    Never too early to start this kind of thread

    Right now, our magic number to make the post season as a wild card is 35 (against the Islanders). Islanders max points is 110, we are at 76.

    We are played well for tie breakers as only two of our 34 wins are were in a shootout so we have 32 ROW, Leafs are 27 and Islanders 28.

    It is also 35 for home ice in the first round and 39 for home ice for the first two rounds (aka division winner)

    Down to five. High Pitch's team pulled one out if its ass so it is the new team to be 3rd in wild card.

    Meh, we could go 0-7-0 and still have an 88% chance of backing into the playoffs.

    Habs could go 0-6-0 from here and still have a 99.7% chance of backing into the playoffs.

    Can't help it that it's rife with hypocrisy and double-standards.
