Big win tonight puts the team back at .500.

You can do this.

Division game.
They have pissed away any margin of error.
Apparently they still believe they can make the playoffs.
Coming off a big win over the best team in the league in which they dominated.
They have barely played in the last month so they should be rested.

In theory you'd think they would come out with some desperation and play well. But this is the 2017-2018 Oilers so who knows.

I don't think it is likely but the only way the Oilers have a chance to get back into the race is if McDavid goes on a run.

Agreed.
It has been about 15 games since I expressed my fading interest. It is basically down now to watching hoping to see McDavid do cool stuff

I'm just watching for C. McDavid, every shift is a gift.
If you are a teammate and you can't raise your game after seeing this guy put out game after game, shift after shift, you aren't worthy of a NHL roster spot.



McDAVID! Oh YEAH Baby!!

McDavid doing McDavidy things is awesome to see!

I like wins and I would like to see 2 entertaining games in a row!



The very definition of insanity is doing the exact same thing expecting different results.

So if we go 3-0 on this roadie winning in regulation does that get us back in the playoff mix? Hopefully because if we beat these Cali teams and don't go on a run it really just helps the flamers.

Nope. We are currently 11 points out with four teams between us and the wild card spot and the bulk of the games are now intra-conference play and three-point games are still a thing, so it would take a miracle for us to make up more than 3-4 points on a playoff spot, even if we swept the road trip.

31 games remaining and we have 50 points. The last three years the last spot in the west had 94, 87 and 97 points. Assuming it's probably 94-95 this year, the margin of error is incredibly thin. It means we need 44/62 points or .700 hockey just to even have a shot at the last spot. We can probably only afford 6-7 more outright losses the rest of the way (9 if we have no OTL/SOLs). And since only 8 of our remaining games are against Eastern Conference foes, we ideally don't surrender much, if any extra points ourselves (which will be tough since McLellan believes in protecting the tie late in games).

To be back in the playoff picture, the Oilers have to pretty much run the table through February and even then, we're probably still not sitting in a playoff spot at the trade deadline.

It should be pointed out that because Vegas now exists there are more points available in the western conference this year. The playoff line will likely be higher as a result.

Still enjoy reading your posts, although you have become quite a bit more of a critique than a few years ago. I don't always agree with you, but you are well researched, which makes you a good read nonetheless. icon_thumbsup

by my math (which is questionable at best), Oilers need a 12 game win streak at this point to get to a playoff pace



Wins in a row the Oilers need to get to playoff pace: infinity

I'd just go by games over .500. We're 1 game below now. Need to be at least 13 over to have a shot. So, need to win 14 more than we lose in regulation the rest of the way. 21-7-3 would give a 50/50 shot according to sportsclubstats.

Basically, need to play like the best team in the NHL the rest of the. Doubt more than 1 team manages a 3:1 win to regulation loss ratio the rest of the year, if any at all. No team has a record like that right now, although Boston could with 1 more win.

Update. So there is a team with a 3:1 win to regulation loss ratio now, Boston with 33-11. But now we have to do even better going 21-6-3 the rest of the way :)
