A Look At the Math, 3/10/11 March 10, 2011

We’ll go from a ridiculously light day yesterday to a much heavier one today. One-third of the league has got math on the table tonight, and strangely enough, four of the teams are going to be watching from their living rooms. Here’s the rundown.

BOSTON BRUINS. Vs Buffalo. Can clinch 14 East, and 4 Northeast, with a win and any Ottawa loss, OR with an overtime/shootout loss and an Ottawa regulation loss.

CALGARY FLAMES. At Phoenix. Can clinch 14 West, and 4 Northwest, with a win or overtime/shootout.

OTTAWA SENATORS. At Florida. Would be eliminated from 2 East and 4 East with any loss, but could still be mathematically alive for 3 East if not eliminated from 1 Northeast by Boston. Would be eliminated from 1 Northeast, 2 East, 3 East, and 4 East, with any loss and a Boston win, or with a regulation loss and a Boston overtime/shootout loss.

PHILADELPHIA FLYERS. At Toronto. Can clinch 13 East, and 4 Atlantic, with a win.

ST. LOUIS BLUES. Vs Montreal. Would be eliminated from President’s Trophy and 1 West with a regulation loss and a Vancouver win.

VANCOUVER CANUCKS. At San Jose. Can clinch 12 West with a win and a St. Louis regulation loss.

EDMONTON OILERS. Idle. Could be eliminated from 4 West, and 2 Northwest, with a Calgary win, overtime, or shootout.

NEW YORK ISLANDERS. Idle. Could be eliminated from 1 Atlantic, and thereby 3 East, with a Philadelphia win.

PITTSBURGH PENGUINS. Idle. Can clinch 14 East with any Ottawa loss.

WASHINGTON CAPITALS. Idle. Can clinch 14 East with any Ottawa loss.

So there you go: the Caps have their first clinch on the line tonight, and they’re watching from their living rooms.

The Caps’ clinch number for the playoffs is now down to 14. And since I’m thinking positive, I’m just going to leave it at that.

GREAT WIN AGAINST EDMONTON–WE NEEDED THAT!
