The official mourning can begin.

With the Flames beating the Red Wings, the Oilers are now mathematically eliminated from the playoffs.

While the realistic chance of qualifying for the post-season died many days ago, the best possible finish the Oilers can hope for is 85 points.

The Flames now sit with 86 points.
