I'm using 88 points as the benchmark to make the playoffs, even though both the Sabres and Rangers are now on pace for 90 and 89 points, respectively.
MAX RL is the maximum amount of regulation losses a team can get and still be able to reach 88 points, however if they pick up a single OT loss to go along with the MAX RL then the benchmark would be unattainable. For example, if the Leafs lost 4 games in regulation over their final 13 games, they'd reach the 88 point mark if they won their other 9 games. A single OT loss would knock them down to a high mark of 86 points.
Pts L10 GP is simply the number of points each team has picked up in their last 10 games.
