latest on the playoff race
  • What Happened Last Night?
    • The Good: We got a point, that's about it.
    • The Bad: Other than the Kings loss, the Sharks got a point and stay 1 behind the Kings. The Wild also took down Lumbus, stay dangerously close.
    • The Odd: Dallas makes it's way to the list. Can any of the bottom 5 teams catch the Blues and Red Wings or is the top 8 set?
  • Tonight's Games That Matter and Your Guide For Rooting:
    • Edmonton @ Anaheim. Ducks all but have the #2 spot locked up, Oilers are tied with Dallas and Lumbus in 10th.
    • Phoenix @ Vancouver. No thanks.

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.
