Western Logjam: Glass Half Empty, Glass Half Full


Glass Half Empty:

  • Sharks won.
  • Flames won.
  • Kings are in 11th, behind everyone else with a prayer to make the post-season.

Glass Half Full:

  • Coyotes lost to Flames.
  • Sharks won in a shoot-out, so they didn't pick up any ROWs.
  • Avs half-lost.
  • The Kings have games in hand on everyone.
  • In points-blown (see below), the Kings are tied with Calgary and ahead of Colorado and Phoenix.
  • Despite the ecstasy of the TV pundits, Colorado is not in a great place. They've played two or three more games than several of the teams in the logjam.
  • With a win tonight, the Kings can make it impossible for the Ducks to reach 93 points.

Tonight:

  • LAK/ANA, CHI/DAL (go Hawks, go regulation), CGY/EDM (go Oil, if Flames win, let it be in a SO).
