    Default Magic Number Thread

    Always nice to be in a position to start one of these.

    As I suspect we are headed for a wildcard, I will not worry about the division. I also do not consider ROW tiebreakers at this time, I worry solely about points.

    Right now, we have 71 points with 22 to go. Max Points is 115

    Columbus 69 with 23 to go, so max is 115 Magic number v Columbus is 45 (right now the 2nd wild card)

    Carolina 69 with 22 to go, max 112, Magic number is 42

    Sabres 63 with 23 to go, max 108 max number is 39

    Flyers 63 with 22 to go, max 107 Magic number is 37


    There are other teams further behind that we likely need not worry about.

    Therefore, the magic number right now is 42.

    This is not going to be easy. We play teams like the Leafs and Tampa while the teams trying to catch us play crap teams

    Is this the "Magic Number" to the last Wild Card spot?

    Yup. The teams that wins will be getting in. There will be no backing in.

    I'm more shocked at how the Whalers have been playing since Christmas.

    Good thing is that tonight, Penguins and Blue Jackets play. We benefit either way but I would prefer no three point game.

    Jets better not let us down tomorrow re the Whalers.

    33 against Penguins and Hurricanes

    31 against Columbus,

    24 against Flyers

    Depending how things go tonight, we could have the magic number as low as 27. Due to who plays whom etc we do control our own destiny. If we win out, we are in.

    Fortunately not, Pens win 3-0.

    So I am assuming Columbus' magic number is the same as ours? Or is it better?

    no as we are ahead of them, their max points are 107. Our Max points are 107. Therefore, their magic number is 31. Our's is 29
