Obviously, I am stoked the Fly guys locked up their post season birth, but I guess I don't quite understand why. Maybe it's something to do with this 'awesome' new playoff format, but I don't see how.
The Flyers currently have 91 pts, Detroit has 90 and Columnus has 89, all sitting at 79gp. Neither Philly, Detroit, nor Columbus play each other over the next 3 games (if I'm not mistaken), so theoretically, if we were to lose out and both Detroit and Columbus both won out, that would leave Det with 96, Col with 95 and we'd stay at 91. Would we be bumped out?
I don't know.. I'm just so confused. Not that I think Columbus or Detroit will win out, or that we'll lose out, but I don't understand how we clinched. Any insight would be greatly appreciated!!!
