No playoff spot yet

Why does TSN say the Riders have clinched a playoff spot? Doesn't the riders need to have more points than the third place team in the East to cross-over? Riders are only 4 points ahead, and both TOR and HAM have 2 games left. There is no cross over if there is a tie on points. What's up???

I solved my riddle. If TOR and HAM win then MTL loses twice and is out of playoffs. Riders in no matter what.
