Winnipeg also kept the Isles' magic number at 3, meaning the Isles will need help on Tuesday-- but if they get it, April 23rd 2013 will be a playoff clinching night.
- 1 Pittsburgh (Atl Leader) 45 games 35-10-0 70 points (32 ROW) Next game:Tuesday vs. Buffalo
- 2 Boston (NE Leader) 44 games 27-12-5 59 points (23 ROW) Next game: Tuesday at Philadelphia

- 4 Montreal 45 games 27-13-5 59 points (24 ROW) Next game:Tuesday at New Jersey
- 5.Toronto 45 games 25-15-5 55 points (24 ROW) Next game:Wednesday at Tampa Bay
- 6 NY Islanders 45 games 24-16-5 53 points (20 ROW) Next game: Tuesday at Carolina
- 7 NY Rangers 45 games 24-17-4 52 points (20 ROW) Next game: Tuesday at Florida
- 8 Ottawa 45 games 23-16-6 52 points (19 ROW) Next game:Thursday at Washington
- 9 Winnipeg 46 games 24-19-3 51 points (22 ROW) Next game: Tuesday at Washington
- Fewest games played - (Boston 44, Montreal 45 puts Montreal 2nd and Montreal 4th)
- Most ROW - (NY Rangers 20, Ottawa 19 puts Rangers 7th and Ottawa 8th)
- Head-to-Head record
- Goal differential for the entire season
As high as 4th (win last three, all in regulation while Boston loses last 4, all in regulation while Toronto gets no more than three points; Isles would also need to make up 23 goals in the goal-differential tie-break with Boston)
or as low as 9th (Winnipeg earns two more points in final two games than Isles do in final three and Rangers, Ottawa and Caps all pass Isles)
- Islanders at Carolina - Islanders can clinch playoff spot with EITHER: Islander win and Winnipeg loss (of any type) or Islander ot/shootout loss and Winnipeg regulation loss.
- Buffalo at Pittsburgh (rescheduled from 4/20)- Pittsburgh closed within 3 points of Chicago for the President's Trophy with their win over Ottawa and the Hawks loss in Vancouver
- Boston at Philadelphia - The B's magic number for clinching the 2nd seed is 7, which could go down to the make-up game on Sunday.
- Winnipeg at Washington - The biggest game of the night. Winnipeg can regain the SE lead for the first time since 4/3 with a regulation win, but a Caps regulation win clinches the division for Washington.
- Montreal at New Jersey - The slumping Canadiens need a regulation/overtime win to keep the pressure on Boston and keep themselves in good shape for home ice. If Montreal loses in regulation, Toronto controls fate for home ice and would finish ahead of Montreal if they win final three (including Saturday vs Montreal in regulation)
- Rangers at Florida - The Rangers moved up to 7th for the first time in 2 weeks by not playing last night; they are tied with Ottawa, but NYR have one more regulation/overtime win.
- Toronto at Tampa Bay They'll need a lot of help to get there but the Leafs could still win the Southeast if Boston and Montreal both falter.
