So, are they done yet? 5/6 points behind the two wildcard teams, each of whom have 3 games in hand. Both those teams are above .500 so those 3 games in hand are likely 4 points or more. So, more realistically, they are 10 points out.
26 games to go. If they went 18-6-2 that would give them 94 points. I think that's about as close as I can get to "remotely possible" with this team (i.e. winning 2 out of every 3 games). There's absolutely nothing that they have shown all season that would suggest they could go on such a run.
Now, here's a bit of optimism. In the two games with Phaneuf in the lineup they gave up 29 shots to Detroit (a team that's playing pretty well) and 27 to Colorado. Getting under 30 shots on goal a game is a step forward, for sure. It's just 2 games, but it could turn into a trend.
