KEY: Q is my standings, default sorted by points-blown (explanation of points-blown here). NHL is the official standings, via NHL.COM (ESPN has the tie-breakers wrong). PRJ is projected point total for 82 games. PB is points-blown. +/- is the distance in points-blown above or below the 8th seed. TO 95 is the record needed to get to the presumed (by me) playoff-threshold. GR is games-remaining. W! is wins plus OT wins (the first tie-breaker). R, OT and SO are regulation, over-time and shoot-out,  and W and L after each indicates wins and losses for each of those three categories (e.g. R:W is regulation wins, OT:W is over-time wins, etc.). 

Some observations:

  • Four points-blown separate 4th from 11th.
  • Two points-blown separate 5th from 10th.
  • W% and PB are in total agreement.
  • W%/PB and official points all have the same teams in the top 8. 
  • The Kings pulled even with PHX in tie-breaker wins. They're still one behind DAL and two behind CHI and ANA. 
  • We're now looking at, essentially, 8 teams fighting for 5 spots. DAL, CHI, LAK, CGY and PHX currently have an edge over MIN, ANA and NAS. But that can change in a heartbeat.
