The time has come to convert the playoff watch page to the playoff death watch page. Devils are 11 points out with only 16 games to play. Even if the Islanders and every other bubble team went .500, the Devils would need a 14-1-1 record to out-point them.
Devils Points: 62
Games Remaining: 16
Tragic Number: 22
As the day gets closer, I'll include projections on earliest elimination date. At this point we're looking somewhere around 3/19 if they continue losing and the Islanders (or someone else) goes on a tear.
