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. LSF is last season's final point total. PB is points-blown. +/- is the distance in points-blown above or below the 8th seed. TO 97 is the record needed to get to the presumed (by me) playoff-threshold. GR is games-remaining. GRb is games-remaining against the six "blue" teams. W! is wins plus OT wins (the first tie-breaker). SS and SSGR are season series against the Kings (Kings' points-earned vs. that team's points-earned) and games remaining (team name in the SSGR column means that team has won the season series). 2 points for a Kings win, 1 for an OT or SO win, -1 for an OT or SO loss, -2 for a loss. GD is goal--differential. Qcl is clustered points, which corrects for variance in games-played and then rounds point totals to the nearest multiple of 5. The idea is to emphasize which teams are bunched together, or, to put it another way, are "more or less tied." It may be useless or annoying. Feel free to ignore.

Observations:

  • I wonder if anyone is going to crap out or if this is going to go right down to the wire. 
  • PHX won (boo) but it was a SO win, which doesn't count in tie-breaker land (yay). 
  • LAK is only 2 W! behind PHX, 1 behind CHI, and is now even with NAS. So it was a great night for the win tie-breaker race. 
  • 5th to 9th are separated by 2 points-blown.
