Okay, I know, next to a miracle, there's very little that will stop Phoenix from making the playoffs. However, if the circumstances are JUST right, it could happen.
For anyone who's interested, here's a list of what has to happen for Phoenix to miss the playoffs...
Phoenix losses to San Jose in regulation (Friday) Phoenix losses to San Jose in regulation (Saturday) Dallas wins against Coloradio in regulation or OT (Thursday) Dallas wins against Colorado in regulation or OT (Firday) Dallas wins against Minnesota in regulation or OT (Sunday) Chicago needs at least 2 points in their last 2 games against Detroit (Friday, Sunday) Anahiem needs at least 2 points in their last 2 games against L.A. (Friday, Saturday)
So, yeah, it's a long shot to say the least. But hey, at least it's not impossible!
very good chance they will make the playoffs, UNFORTUNATELY!!! if that does happen, I bet there arena will be packed with people whether supporting the Coyotes OR the opposition. I'm sure tickets will almost be given away to make Phoenix look good, and all the naysayers look bad!

^^^^ I agree, whitecaps!
Tonight is a big night in this playoff showdown. I think I counted that there are 5 separate games tonight that factor into the Coyotes playoff question. I will be keeping track of those scores with great interest tonight!!!

^^^^ I counted 5 games that matter tonight, because I was counting Nashville as well. But, it looks like if Nashville and Phoenix were tied, the tie breaker would LIKELY go to Nashville. In order for Phoenix to miss the playoffs, Phoenix must lose both of their remaining games in regulation time. The only way Nashville would remain tied with Phoenix at that point is if Nashville also lost both their remaining games in regulation time. In that case, both teams would have the same number of ROW wins (wins in reg. or OT), and the season series would be tied. But Nashville would likely get the tiebreaker and make the playoffs based on for and against goals stats, where they are currently better than Phoenix by 18 goals - likely an insurmountable difference for the remaining 2 games! So, I think that is why the Nashville game may be regarded as a game that doesn't matter for Phoenix's playoff quest, since Phoenix won't finish ahead of Nashville either way.

Yeah, I didn't really include Nashville since for Phoenix to beat them (and still lose all their games) Nashville would have to lose their last 2 games by a combined score of 20 goals. Not overly likely, but who knows.
