We absolutely have to hope for a Florida win.

A Carolina loss combined with a Florida win puts Carolina on pace for 88 points and Buffalo for 85 points and Florida at still only 82.
88 points is huge, it buys the Devils one more loss. 23-5 turns into 22-6. That means we need to win 3 of 4 games from here on out instead of 4 in 5.

The other scenario, a Carolina win and Buffalo win puts them both at over 88 points projected.

Go Flyers go Panthers!

Well then if we are going with projected totals, then I will root for Florida, like I said whoever wins that one win it in regulation not in OT or shootout!!

This could end up being a fun thread. Hell, it already is.

Great idea, PaDevsFan!

In one month and one day's time, the Devils have cut the deficit from 27 points to 13.

Un-fuggin-believable.

I love this friggin team!

Devils get 2 pts, Leafs pick up 1, Carolina gets nothing, and BUF-FLA is still tied and possibly going to OT.

It looks like everyone after the 8 spot that played tonight picked up at least a point.

But, hey, the most important team that we needed to lose did. Thank you Philthy!

Carolina's loss today was excellent. There are now two teams projected for ~88 points, Buffalo and Carolina. Buffalo has now actually passed Carolina in winning percentage and are the new "enemy." If the Rangers lose tomorrow they will be on pace for ~89 points.

The Devils new MINIMUM record is: 21-6, or .778 winning percentage.

TGfireandice: Zubrus on Devils' closing within 13 points of a playoff spot: “You guys count that. We just play."

I agree and love this mindset.Play and let us do the counting Zubie.

excellent work here, sir. i'm trying not to think about these scenarios until the devils get within reasonable striking distance. which for me is running off like 9 more wins in a row, haha.

basically this stretch IS the playoffs. if we make it to the playoffs, it's like we won the stanley cup.

I'd want Atlanta to beat the Rangers, it opens up more slots for the top 8 if these guys are all closer together.

i'm on that boat, too. That puts the Rangers on pace for 90ish points and puts them in striking distance. I don't think the Devils can get to 92 points so it helps to have more teams in the 86-90 range to pass.

8 - Carolina - 54 GP - 59 Points
9 - Atlanta - 56 GP - 58 Points
10 - Buffalo - 52 GP - 55 Points
11 - Florida - 53 GP - 52 Points
12 - Toronto - 54 GP - 51 Points
13 - New Jersey - 54 GP - 44 Points

Stupid Toronto widens the gap. Same distance from Buffalo as before. Made up ground on everyone else.


Update:

8 - Carolina - 55 GP - 59 Points
9 - Atlanta - 56 GP - 58 Points
10 - Buffalo - 53 GP - 57 Points
11 - Florida - 54 GP - 53 Points
12 - Toronto - 55 GP - 52 Points
13 - New Jersey - 55 GP - 46 Points

The only team we stayed even with is Buffalo. We gained one point on Toronto and Florida, and two points on Atlanta and Carolina.

Guys I feel the same way. I was told last night in the chat room we want the Rags to win and anybody above #8 to keep winning. I dont agree, I would rather see a jumble and teams all getting closer. Either way this thread is certainly gaining momentum just like the team. We need to keep beleiving this can happen!

About a week or so ago I was saying the Devils needed to go like 24 - 5 - 1 and I actually had tonight penciled in as a loss figuring it wouldnt mean as much in the grand scheme of things, now ??? Forget that, if the Devils win tonight they move within 11 of Carolina.

Only other game of real importance is Rags at Atlanta... Pick your poison on that one. I think we need to root for Atlanta, but if you feel the Rags winning is more important feel free...

Looking ahead though Carolina has another tough one tomorrow at Tampa, then they play Atlanta on Sunday before our matchup with them next week. ONe thing is a bit concerning, we play tonight then I think are off til next Wed... I really hope that mini break doesnt cause some "break" in the momentum. I think Jaques will keep them focused though...

Man if Tampa could help us and beat them tomorrow ... then Sunday either team losing helps so this RUN could get very very interesting by the time we play the Canes next week...

I actually think a break is a good thing at this point. especially for the old timers like patrick, jason and Rolly. the effort has been intense, come back with fresh legs. especially after tonight
