36. That’s amount of points the Whalers need to get to secure a playoff spot and there are two ways that number goes down.

  • The Whalers win.
  • Kitchener (as of now) loses.

There are nineteen games remaining for the Whalers including two against the Rangers and another against the Sting. Here’s what the matchups look for the next game for each of the teams.

  • Kitchener (16-30-1-1 | 34 points | 10th place in the West) at Niagara (17-27-2-4 | 40 points | 8th place in the East)
    • Season Record: Niagara beat Kitchener in OT on January 10th.
  • Mississauga ( 19-27-1-3 | 42 points | 7th place in the East) at Sarnia (15-29-1-5 | 36 points | 9th place in the West)
    • Season Record: Mississauga beat Sarnia 4-3 on November 10th
  • Belleville (14-31-2-2 | 32 points | 10th place in the East) at Plymouth (17-27-0-5 | 39 points | 8th place in the West)
    • Season Record: Belleville beat Plymouth 4-1 on December 18th

What happens if:

  • Plymouth, Sarnia and Kitchener win
    • Whalers would need 34 points to clinch
  • Plymouth and Sarnia win, Kitchener loses. / Plymouth wins, Sarnia and Kitchener lose.
    • Whalers would need 32 points to clinch.
  • Plymouth, Sarnia, and Kitchener lose
    • Whalers would need 34 points to clinch
  • Kitchener wins, Plymouth loses
    • 18 games remaining for the Whalers and they would still need 36 points to clinch.

It should be of note that Kitchener has a game in hand on us right now, but they will catch up when they face Guelph on Tuesday. In the best case scenario that number can drop by four by the end of the day. Worst case, we will still be at 36.
