Colorado Avalanche: 2.8 Percent Chance to Make Run at Stanley Cup

According to Sports Club Stats, the Avs still have a 2.8 percent chance of making the playoffs, and while the odds are certainly not great, many "experts" picked the Avs to finish among the bottom in the NHL.

So the fact they are still in the playoff hunt going into game 81 is a win in and of itself. And although a 2.8-percent chance isn't great, Colorado is still alive nonetheless. 

In order to make the playoffs, the Avalanche must beat the Columbus Blue Jackets tonight and Nashville on Saturday.  Both wins must come in regulation or overtime (the Avs cannot afford to go into a shootout because of the tiebreaker rules).

The Avs also need the San Jose Sharks to lose both of their remaining games to the Los Angeles Kings.  They play in L.A. tonight and San Jose on Saturday.  If the Sharks earn a point, the Avs will be eliminated.

Finally, the Dallas Stars need to lose either tonight in Nashville or Saturday in St. Louis.

Simple enough, right?

Here's a look at some other odds affecting the future of the Colorado Avalanche.
