Saturday: The Good, The Bad, The Real Standings

Last night's results

The Good: CHI did NOT win in regulation or OT, PHX half-lost.

The Bad: CGY won, CHI won. 

Tonight's Games

DAL @ LAK -- psychologically as much as anything, this is a huge game for the Kings. A Stars loss goes a long way toward eliminating them and setting the 8 playoff teams. 

DET @ NAS -- go Wings. 

ANA @ SJS -- Go Sharks, obviously. 

Now, the updated standings:

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. MAX is maximum points possible for that team. 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:

 

  • Nothing really. I would rather be in 4th with 96 than 6th with 94.
