latest on the playoff race
  • What Happened Last Night?
    • The Good: The Ducks lost, and Lumbus jumped over the Red Wings into 8th place.
    • The Bad: Nothing. The National Anthem in Bostin last night is why hockey is so amazing.
    • The Odd: Did you see the Ducks 2nd goal last night?! The strangest goal of the year. WATCH HERE.
  • Tonight's Games That Matter and Your Guide For Rooting:
    • Lumbus @ Los Angeles. Friends become foes. As great of a story is that the Jackets are in 8th, the points are ours tonight.
    • St. Louis @ Phoenix. Look for Phoenix to take 2 points from the 7th ranked Blues.
    • Vancouver @ Dallas. Keep it in regulation.
    • Minnesota @ San Jose. Do you want the Kings to play the Sharks or the Wild in the first round?

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.
