Lvly, keep in mind the M/T numbers are points, not games. When a team's tragic number reaches zero, the team is out of the play-offs. When a team's magic number reaches zero, that team is in the play-offs.
Since SF and the Condor's are on the bubble, their numbers will be the same. Your team's tragic number will go down one of two ways:
1) Any point SF gets.
2) Any point the Condor's give up (if they lose in regulation, they give up two; if they lose in OT/SO, they give up 1. If they win, they give up nothing for that game.
As it stands now, any combination of 19 SF wins/Bako losses dooms the Condors where OT loss = half a game for both teams.
The confusing part is they can switch positions quickly and frequently where the Condors are just in the bubble and SF just out. If that happens, then you have a magic number and it goes down with every point your team gets and every point SF gives up. It gets ever weirder if another team replaces SF. Then you have to watch them.
