Tuesday's Kings-Centric Standings in Points-Blown

The Good: Stars lose (Sunday), Flames lose (Monday), Ducks lose, Preds lose, Wings half-lose. Oh, and KINGS WIN.

The Bad: Avs win (Sunday), Blues win (Monday), Yotes win.

The Bad but so what: Hawks win.

The Utterly Irrelevant: Jackets win, Oilers [haven't lost yet but who am I kidding]

Two points "awarded" for every loss, one point for every OTL/SOL. Lowest point total is best. Number in parentheses is the official standings (via ESPN). Last number (+/-) is number of points (in my system) ahead or behind Los Angeles. Because it's a Kings-centric universe. 

Kings are now in a tie for 5th, three points from 4th, five points from 9th. 15 points separate 3rd (COL) from 13th (ANA); COL is 10 points above 9th place CGY; ANA is 6 points below 8th seed DET. Any one of those 11 teams is a winning streak or losing streak away from a dramatic shift. 

  1. San Jose Sharks 28 (1) +13
  2. Chicago Blackhawks 30 (2) +11
  3. Colorado Avalanche 36 (3) +5
  4. Vancouver Canucks 38 (4) +3
  5. Phoenix Coyotes 41 (5) 0
  6. Los Angeles Kings 41 (6) --
  7. Nashville Predators 43 (7) -2
  8. Detroit Red Wings 45 (8) -4
  9. Calgary Flames 46 (9) -5
  10. Dallas Stars 49 (10) -8
  11. Minnesota Wild 50 (12) -9
  12. St. Louis Blues 50 (13) -9
  13. Anaheim Ducks 51 (11) -10
  14. Columbus Blue Jackets 59 (14) -18
  15. Edmonton Oilers 64 (15) -23

Tie breaker is games-played, except that the winner of the tie breaker is the team who has played more games. If this seems counter-intuitive, consider this: A team with a 10-2 record is better than a team with a 2-2 record, who is, in turn better than a team that's 0-2.
