Bruins playoff scenarios

Posted By Dan Rowinski On April 10, 2010 @ 1:58 pm In General | 4 Comments

Alright, let’s break this down as simply as we can.

-The Bruins can clinch a playoff spot with a point against either Carolina or Washington.

-The Bruins can clinch the No. 6 seed with a Montreal loss against Toronto on Saturday night and a combination of two points against the Hurricanes and Capitals (a win or two overtime points).

- The Bruins can clinch the No. 7 seed with a combination of two points combined with a Canadiens win.

-The Bruins can clinch the No. 8 seed with a single point on Saturday or Sunday and the Rangers/Flyers games does not go into overtime.

- The Bruins would take the N0. 8 seed with two losses only if Sunday’s Ranger/Flyers game does not go into overtime earning the loser a point.

-The Bruins would not make the playoffs with two losses and the Rangers/Flyers game on Sunday does go into overtime.

Right now the Bruins and Canadiens each have 87 points. Montreal holds the tie-breaker because they have more wins and also won the head-to-head season series. The Rangers and Flyers have 86 points apiece and play each other in Philadelphia on Sunday. Boston would lose any tie-breaker against the four remaining teams because they would end up with fewer wins.
