The chase for the playoffs

Updated: April 16, 2013

The Buffalo Sabres have a 1.6% chance of making the playoffs. 

We’re nearing the halfway point of the season and the Sabres sit in 29th place. If you’re visiting this page, you have a very optimistic view of the second half of the season. Perhaps you’d be better off in checking out the odds of Buffalo landing the number one overall pick by visiting this page.

The Sabres are 10 points behind Boston for the final wild card spot, which historically, is a large deficit to overcome. Including the Bruins, the Sabres would have to pass seven teams in order to find their way into the playoffs. 

A lot needs to happen for the Sabres to make the playoffs. Something like a seven or eight game winning streak would have to be in the near future in order for Buffalo to get back in the mix.

    Sabres can only pass Ottawa if Sens lose out and Sabres win out. Highly unlikely.

    Can’t we still pass Ottawa? Unless the games match up a way I’m not seeing we can still with a lot of luck… pass them. 23 percent is better then 0! I still believe and never lost faith in the sabres this year. Great report as always

    Great info, and good work with all the numbers. Hopefully one of these yeras e can have a “Playoff Primer” post for the Sabres and not just a push for the playoffs type post.
