latest on the playoff race
  • What Happened Last Night?
    • The Good: Nothing good on the Kings end.
    • The Bad: Sharks and Wild both won, making each and every game more important if the Kings want to secure home ice.
    • The Odd: Lumbus is tired with the Red Wings at 47pts?! Watch out.
  • Tonight's Games That Matter and Your Guide For Rooting:
    • Los Angeles @ San Jose. Could this be a Round 1 Playoff preview?
    • Vancouver @ St. Louis. After winning 6 in a row, Blues droped 2; if they can put together another streak could they make it up to 5th?
    • Minnesota @ Edmonton. The beaten up Wild are 2 pts away from 5th; Kings still have a few possible 1st round opponents.

Tie-Breaking procedure
Division leaders are seeded 1, 2, and 3 in Conference standings. If two or more clubs are tied in points during the regular season, the standing of the clubs is determined in the following order:
  • The fewer number of games played (i.e., superior points percentage).
  • The greater number of games won, excluding games won in the Shootout.
  • The greater number of points earned in games between the tied clubs. If two clubs are tied, and have not played an equal number of home games against each other, points earned in the first game played in the city that had the extra game shall not be included. If more than two clubs are tied, the higher percentage of available points earned in games among those clubs, and not including any "odd" games, shall be used to determine the standing.
  • The greater differential between goals for and against for the entire regular season.
