Ottawa now has a better chance at winning the Division than Montreal (42% to 31%). Somehow with Toronto, Montreal and Tampa all losing we managed to drop 0.2% in the chance to make the playoffs. Weird, but I guess Boston winning and Toronto getting a loser point?
With that SO win against the Leafs the Rangers are now third in the Metropolitan, pushing the once unbeatable (literally) Blue Jackets into a wildcard spot. The Islanders hold the second spot, but Boston has the same number of points (played one more game) and Florida is just 2 back with a game in hand. Have the other teams now unofficially dropped out of the race? Philly is 5 back, Buffalo and Tampa at 6. I think it will take another week to sort out who will almost definitely miss. But there will still be three or four teams in the battle for the last spot.
