From February 3rd
"If Regina or Edmonton doesn't falter the Tigers need to win @ a .700 rate. which is essentially pulling a rabbit out of the net at this point in the season."
Edmonton has 12 points in 14 games...Keeping their same rate, but a tiny bit lower than my math predictions which estimated them at a .500 rate.
The Tigers went 15 points in 15 games (.500) rate. It is well below the needed target of .700
What That Means
The Tigers have only made a small gain.
The Good News is that in their last 10 games, they are playing at a .750 rate. If they continue that rate, they have a shot at making the playoffs.
They were pretty much on the border of no return, before pulling off 15/20 points.
Tigers: KTN( H,A) CGY(A), Leth(H,A)
Edmonton: CGY(H,A) Leth(A) ktn(A), RD(H,A)
Both teams play 3 games in 3 nights this weekend, and again could potentially harbor a big swing. The Tigers could both leapfrog Edmonton or become eliminated completely.
3.5 Edmonton wins or Tiger losses will equal elimination.
Edmonton has a tough schedule, but the Tigers do as well.
