Playoff Math — Revisited
- Updated: April 6, 2009
Upon further review, some of my statements about playoff possibilities were incorrect, due to my failure to account for the number of wins each team might have. That is the first “real” tiebreaker, assuming all teams have played the same number of games. My bad. Here is the “real” scoop (honest!):
- 1 win and 1 OTL by the CBJ put us in the playoffs, and in 6th place, no matter what Anaheim, St. Louis and Nashvill do.
- 1 loss by any of the 3 teams (Nashville, St. Louis, Anaheim) means that we only need 1 OTL in our last three to be in the playoffs.
- 1 loss and 1 OTL by any of our opponents means we are in, regardless.
