Jackets' Magic Numbers
The Blue Jackets don't control their own destiny for anything other than the 1st Wild Card spot. Their Magic Number to stay above the Red Wings is 4 (DET max points: 95; CBJ own ROW tie-breaker).
The Rangers, by virtue of their win and Philly's loss last night, have locked up the 2nd Metro spot; neither the Flyers nor Jackets can catch them. So, we're left with the race for the 3rd spot with Philly:
PHI max points: 95
CBJ max points: 95
Jackets can tie Flyers in ROW with some help. Jackets own the second tie-breaker (head-to-head) with Philly.
