Since it was so popular yesterday, I decided to update my little playoff race graphic with last night's results included. That means the Devils are off the board because they clinched, but I added the Sabres so that all the teams that are still mathematically in the race are included.
*The asterisk for the Hurricanes being in 3rd is because, obviously, their 90 points isn't the third most in the conference. The 3rd seed will go to the winner of the Southeast Division. What that also means is that if Buffalo catches Washington and Carolina, the Sabres could finish with the 8th most points in the East and still not make it.
Also check out my recap of last night's Caps game (from a packed house and packed press box at Verizon Center) at DC Sports Box:
