have the same record as Florida (29-36-12) and both teams have 25 non-shootout
wins. However, Florida earned 5 points in the season series with the Isles
while the Isles earned 4 so the Panthers are technically ahead.
The Isles would reach 80 points if they win their last five games. However,
they would have fewer non-shootout wins than any of the three teams that current
have 80 points. The Isles can currently finish anywhere from 23rd to 29th
