Calgary Flames (22-26-3, 47 pts) - Ottawa Senators (22-27-5, 49 pts)
The Montreal Canadiens do not want to make the playoffs. The only remaining playoff spot up for grabs in the NHL is incredibly still open for the taking, as the Canadiens, who only need one point of any kind to clinch a playoff spot, have lost 3 straight regulation games. With 2 games left in their season against the red-hot Edmonton Oilers, it’s clear they could lose both of those.
If that were the case, and the Flames win all of their remaining 5 games in regulation, they could still pass Montreal.
