Jackets' Magic Numbers

This number is the combination of Jackets' points earned combined with the team's points lost that would guarantee a Jackets' playoff spot over the team. The team's maximum possible number of points if they win out is in parentheses. So, for example, if the Jackets go 3-3-1 the rest of the way, they need Washington to lose at least two games to guarantee a playoff spot. Sorry, I know you all know how sports magic numbers work.

Washington - 11 (max points: 93)
Toronto - 10 (max points: 92)
New Jersey - 10 (max points: 92)
Ottawa - 8 (max points: 90)
Carolina - 7 (max points: 89)
