latest on the playoff race
  • What Happened Last Night?
    • The Good: Kings get a point to finish season with 95.
    • The Bad: Coyotes win, meaning Kings can't win division and then LA blow's 2-0 lead to San Jose to finish with #8 seed.
    • The Odd: For how close the race was all season, Kings finish five points ahead of ninth place Calgary (90).
  • Stanley Cup Playoff Matchups -- Round One:
    • (1) Vancouver vs. (8) Los Angeles -- Kings went 2-2-0 against Vancouver this season.
    • (2) St. Louis vs. (7) San Jose -- Blues get a tough opponent in "under-seeded" Sharks.
    • (3) Phoenix vs. (6) Chicago -- By allowing late third period goal to Detroit, Hawks get "easier" opponent in Phoenix.
    • (4) Nashville vs. (5) Detroit -- Preds rolling, can they keep it up vs. seasoned Red Wings team?

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.
