The battle to get into the race

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