Default 2018-19 Flames' Playoff Snake

The playoff snake is back for another season. To recap for the returnees, and explain for the newcomers, the black line represents 96 points normalized over the season, which is a 1.171 points per game pace. As long as the red snake gets to 96 points, the Flames will make the playoffs. The black line has nothing to do with the current standings, what the team in 8th place is doing, or any other variation. It does not matter if a team gets into the playoffs with only 80 points. The black line will not be changed to another number. This includes, but is not limited to, 94, 92, and 97. Explanation why is from this post: https://forum.calgarypuck.com/showpo...&postcount=616

This thread has absolutely nothing to do with Sports Club Stats, nor does it have anything to do with the likelihood or chance the Flames will make the playoffs. Please do not bring these up in this thread. There are many other threads for that purpose. Anyone bringing up Sports Club Stats will be punched in the taint.

No team in the western conference has achieved 96 points and missed the playoffs. I am including last year's snake and the last snake to finish above the black line for comparative purposes.

After not getting any points in the first game, the red snake has gotten two huge points in each of the last two games. It sits 0.488 points above the black line, is tied with the purple snake, and is 2 points above the orange snake.

What I enjoyed most last year was seeing the oilers fall off below the grid, came back up for a bit, and then fell back down and never resurfaced again.
