    12 points in 10 games. That's a multiple of 6 every 5. I did maths, yo

    Currently sitting at -3 with 39 points and the two teams sitting in wild card position have 42 points...so far, "6 points in 5 games" is a solid projection.

    Interesting that the 8 teams currently in playoff position have positive goal differentials, and the 8 who are not have negative goal differential. The Canes currently sit at -10.

    It really does work, we have 2 bonus games at the end that can help the -3 Pace we are on, but if we can make that up, then the bonus games will only help us move up.

    Not sure how the “Pace” field is being filled in on the OP, but we should be -4 (overall), currently, right?

    EDIT, never mind, I scored the 1-2-2 stretch as a -3 instead of a -2.

    No, win the next game and we have the 6 in 5 with 2 games to make back the -3

    I see what’s wrong: you’ve got this current 5-game stretch labeled as “35-40”. That should be “36-40”.

    Since tonight’s was game 37, I thought you still hadn’t updated the Pace yet.

    The next two weeks of games are going to suck, but if we can (at least) tread water during that time and don't let other teams get too far ahead, the rest of the year should be much easier (assuming they play like they have lately)

    Updated to the 1/2 way mark, how crazy accurate this method is.

    You think that is "treading water"? I'd take that in a heartbeat for that stretch. I'd be satisfied if we came out of that 2-3 or 1-2-2.

    TB- L
    WSH- W, OTL (figure the W comes in Raleigh but who knows)
    CGY-W

    That’s 6 / 7 points of the 10. Which is on target for the 6pts in 5 games

    Right, and we're 2 points off the pace for the season....so by definition, treading water.

    Most of predicted not holding on this 5 but we left at least 2 point on the ice and that hurts. then we apparently forget to show up again.

    So we have to win 22 out of our last 34 games to hit 94 points. We have won 21 games so far this season in 48 games.

    Or we could go 17-7-10, 20-10-4, or 15-5-14, etc to hit 94.

    Time to fire up a draft thread? Or I guess start talking more about them as I now remember one exists...

    3-2-0, didn’t get any points back, and didn’t fall behind
