2019 Playoff race.

Big week for the Canes. Figured I would create a thread so we can talk about the playoff race and games of note that effect seeding. Big regulation loss the Pens suffered tonight. Columbus down a goal at first intermission. Any Columbus or Pittsburgh loss is huge. Go Canes!

Well, the Canes got a little help and will be playing for playoff positioning tomorrow against the Devils.

Just an idea of where things stand:

Metro

1. Islanders - 70 points

2. Capitals - 67 points

3. Blue Jackets - 65 points

4. Penguins - 63 points (Wild Card 2)

5. Hurricanes - 62 points

6. Sabres - 61 points

7. Flyers - 57 points

It's super hard to make up points in the NHL, the Flyers are 9-0-1 in their last 10 and still trail the Canes by 5 points (the Canes own the tiebreaker), the Canes need to make sure they keep winning the games they are supposed to.

Hopefully Philly will go 10-0-1 today and handle the Pens.

We got a little help from Winnipeg as they beat the Sabres in regulation today.

The projected cut line is now 93 points which drops the magic number down a bit. A record of 16-10 over the final 26 would put as at the 93 point marker. This number will fluctuate up or down depending on how the Flyers/Pens game goes tomorrow.

Go Flyers

Huge third period for the boys in a 4-1 win over Ottawa.

Unfortunately we haven't gotten any help so far as the Jackets and Sabres have both won.

Magic Number: 16-9 over the last 25

Important Notes: 14 of the final 25 are against teams with a worse record than the Canes / 14 of the final 25 are at home.
