The Skinny on the Playoff Chase

It was a good night for the Isles and they didn't even play.  Ottawa's regulation win in Boston and Arizona's regulation win in Tampa Bay both worked in the Isles' favor.

The Isles remain 4 points behind the Bruins but now have two games in hand on Boston and remain one point ahead of Tampa Bay and hold a game in hand on the Lightning.  The Isles remain three points behind Toronto and even in games with the Leafs as Toronto was also idle.

The Isles are 4 ROWs behind Boston, are even in ROWs with Toronto, and have two more ROWs than Toronto.

Even though the standings say the Isles are chasing Toronto, they are much closer to catching the Bruins!
