Boston Blows It; Playoff Hopes on Life Support

April 05 2011 07:33AM

The Bruins held a 3-0 lead last night and lost 5-3 to the Rangers. As usual we wish Boston the very worst. The Rangers with 91 points are now clear of the Toronto Maple Leafs. In New York they're only worried about Carolina stealing their spot. The Sabres are still in reach but if you remember our post yesterday they need three regulation losses and the Leafs need three wins not in a shootout.

Playoff Scenarios

April 04 2011 09:19AM

Currently in 10th place, (37-32-10, 32 ROW), There are two playoff spots the Leafs can grab. Here's how they can do it:

7th place: Buffalo Sabres - 90 pts (40-29-10, 35 ROW)

ROW is wins in either regulation or OT. It's the new first tiebreaker. To catch the Sabres the Leafs need to beat Washington, New Jersey and Montreal before the shootout and the Sabres need to lose their remaining three games in regulation. One missed point by the Leafs or one gained point by Buffalo and it's over.

If the Leafs win out without the shootout they'll have 90 points and 35ROW. That would take us to the second tie breaker: points earned in head to head games. The Leafs are 3-2-1 against Buffalo this season, good for 7pts. Buffalo is 3-3-0 vs. Toronto for only 6pts.

Buffalo's schedule is: Tampa, Philly and @ Columbus. Tampa and Philly haven't done us many favors so far and Columbus are pretty terrible.
