Toronto should be second place, as they beat Ottawa

Technically, Toronto is currently in second place on that tie-breaker. But that doesn't really mean anything at this point.
Both Toronto and Ottawa's ultimate playoff seeding could be determined next weekend, when Toronto plays in Ottawa.
If the Blues are swept two straight than the race for 2nd place is all but over.
But if the Blues could pull off a split with a win over Ottawa U at Monpetit Hall, then Toronto definitely has the inside track to that all important first round bye.
