I believe the victory tonight moves them into 3rd place in the Metro ahead of the Pens by virtue of the tiebreaker (more ROWs).
- JohnScammo


Right now they are behind the Pens because of goal differential. That will change tonight based on the outcome of the Pen's game. It's crazy that right now it's coming down to the 4th tie-break criteria.

I believe the tiebreaker order is as follows: 1. # of games played; 2. ROWs; 3. Head to head record; etc. I think goal differential is toward the end, but I could be wrong.

As of this moment, Isles and Pens have the same point total, and same # of games played, so ROWs breaks the tie in favor of the Isles.

This is all totally irrelevant to be worrying about in January, but it's been so long since the Isles were even in contention in January, that it's kind of fun to think about.

Yes. Right now they both have 24 ROWs. If the Pens lose the Isles move to 3rd, otherwise the Pens stay in 3rd.

The standings are insanely tight. It will probably stay close down to the wire.

I stand corrected. I thought the Isles had one more ROW than the Pens. Isles need the Pens to lose in regulation to move ahead of them.....as you said.

Am I crazy?

I feel like in any other season... wouldn't being 11 games above .500 put us pretty much at the top of the division, and close to the top of the conference? I'm shocked at the fact we could drop to 8 games above .500 and not even be holding onto a Wild Card spot.

Isles just need to keep up this play at this point, and hope a few other teams start falling down on their faces. Especially Buffalo and Montreal. It doesn't get any more aggravating than seeing two teams outside of our division holding onto 2 WC spots. Especially considering Buffalo and Montreal weren't expecting to be that good.

It's a shame they didn't keep the old playoff format. We'd currently have the division lead over the Pens...with the Rags/Flyers/Devils not even close to sniffing us.

I believe we're 12-3 in the last 15 if I looked at it correctly. Let's double down on that boys! 24-6. That'll surely lock us into a PO berth. One can only dream.

No. The three point games make the .500 mark meaningless. In fact a .500 record means you are below average.

You need to be very close to 100 points to make the playoffs. Last year 97 points was both wild cards in the East. the 16/17 season 95 points was the final spot.. we had 94. The last year we made it we had 100 points and were top wild card team.

The Isles are currently on pace to finish with 102 points. To hit 100 points they need to go 22-15 in the last 37 games.

Hard to move up in the standings when all the other top teams are winning at a similar pace. Gotta beat the devils with the caps coming up. That is a huge game
