latest on the playoff race
  • What Happened Last Night?
    • The Good: Kings played up and down, but a solid game except for those 20 seconds. A little late, but congrats to the Maple Leaf; back in the big show for the first time since 2004.
    • The Bad: Those brutal 20 seconds, and we let our friends Lumbus down. Look for a rebound tonight against the Red Wings.
    • The Odd: The Red Wings haven't missed the playoffs since the 1989-1990 season.
  • Tonight's Games That Matter and Your Guide For Rooting:
    • Los Angeles @ Detroit. Kings look to score early in a building that's hard to score in at all. Kings want to stay in 4th, Red Wings will try to win 3 out of 3 for a guarenteed 8th spot.
    • San Jose @ Phoenix. Cheer for Phoenix to steal 2 points from the Sharks, they are too close for comfort.

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.
