latest on the playoff race
  • What Happened Last Night?
    • The Good: Whew. Close one last night. Kings with 2 points when they needed it most.
    • The Bad: Sharks and Blues won, too close for comfort.
    • The Odd: 13 teams are still *technically* in the playoff hunt.
  • Tonight's Games That Matter and Your Guide For Rooting:
    • St. Louis @ Lumbus. Hope for Lumbus to take 2 points away from the Blues and try to make a jump for that 8th spot.
    • Dallas @ Nashville. Doesn't really matter, but cheer for Nashville anyway.
    • Detroit @ Chicago. Chicago is in and no one is really close, take away points from the Red Wings and give them to the Hawks.
    • Phoenix @ Calgary. Calgary is out but still can play the spoils to Phoenix playoff hopes.

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.
