Preds playoff scenarios

 

I tried to calculate what needs to happen around the NHL for the Preds to get either the 5th seed. There might be a few errors, so let me know in the comments if you find one.

The Predators get the 5th overall position in the Western Conference if:

  • Preds defeat both PHX and STL
  • Kings lose to either ANA, PHX, EDM, or COL in overtime or regulation

OR

  • Preds defeat either PHX or STL
  • Kings gain 5 or less points in 3 remaining games (ANA, PHX, EDM, COL)
  • Red Wings lose to either CBJ (2x) or CHI in regulation

OR

  • Preds lose both remaining games against PHX and STL
  • Kings gain 3 or less points in 3 remaining games (ANA, PHX, EDM, COL)
  • Red Wings gain 4 or less points in 3 remaining games (CBJ, CBJ, CHI)
  • Avalanche lose to either VAN, EDM, CHI, or LAK in either regulation or overtime
