The battle to get into the race

Four teams, all well out of the playoff race at the trade deadline, and all four go on big runs. Combined, they've been 36-11-3 since that point.

Since the trade deadline
Florida: 8-1-2 (.818)
Edmonton: 11-3-0 (.786)
Toronto: 8-3-1 (.708)
Washington: 9-4-0 (.692)

Incredible.

Yet, of the four, Edmonton has the best chance to make the postseason, followed by Washington, Florida and Toronto. All four remain longshots, but when wasn't that the case?

The funny thing is that considering the Bruins' and the Flyers' tough schedules the rest of the way two of the three Eastern teams could make the playoffs.

Since the Leafs hate their fans I am guessing that it'll be the Panthers and the Capitals.

I expect the Leafs to win all of their remaining games, until the last one, which they will lose 5-4 despite having a 4-1 lead with 10 minutes left. And so they'll miss the playoffs by one point.

The sweet revenge Habs fans have been planing since last year's final game is almost here...

When was the last time (if ever) that three Southeast teams made the playoffs?
