latest on the playoff race
  • What Happened Last Night?
    • The Good: Just keep winning.Just keep winning, winning, winning. Kings need to stay ahead of the Sharks to secure home ice.
    • The Bad: Phoenix and Vancouver won, that doesn't really affect our standings but it's never good.
    • The Odd: In the first round would you rather play Vancouver, San Jose, or Minnesota?
  • Tonight's Games That Matter and Your Guide For Rooting:
    • Los Angeles @ Anaheim. Kings. obviously.
    • St. Louis @ Detroit. As long as it ends in regulation, personal preference matters more than who gets the points.
    • Dallas @ San Jose. Dallas. The Texas team needs to take away points from the Sharks who currently sit 1 pt behind and 1 game in hand of the Kings.
    • Minnesota @ Lumbus. Lumbus! Because it would be amazing if they made the playoffs and the Wild are still too close to the Kings for comfort.
    • Nashville @ Chicago. Chicago. They are already in 1st place, if the Predators fall we are one team closer to seeing who makes the top 8.

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.
