latest on the playoff race
  • What Could Happen?
    • If Blues win they clinch 4th (and then winner of LA vs SJS takes 5th)
    • The Kings can get 4th the following way:
      Win (in any fashion) over San Jose AND St. Louis loss (in any fashion)
    • If Kings lose in OT/SO the best they can finish is 5th (with a Blues regulation loss)
    • If Kings lose in regulation they will finish 6th
    • The only way the Sharks can finish 4th is win (in any fashion) and STL regulation loss
    • Wild clinch a spot with a win over the Avs.
    • Detroit clinches with 1 point vs. Dallas or if Lumbus loses in regulation vs Preds.
    • Columbus needs to beat Nashville and the Red Wings to loose in Dallas in regulation.
    • Here we go.

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.
