Logjam Monday: Good, Bad, Points-Blown

Good: CHI, PHX and ANA lost. (The Ducks are out, but a loss for them is always worth celebrating.)

Bad: n/a

Tonight: LAK/VAN (Go Kings), DAL/CGY (Go Stars), COL/SJS (Go Sharks).

Points-Blown Standings after the jump:

Some observations:

  • 4/5th of the Pacific is separated by one (official) point.
  • However, PHX, which has played two more games than everyone else, is 4 blown-points behind Dallas, and 3 behind LA and San Jose.
  • Although the chart shows 93 points to be the presumed magic number, I'm thinking about bumping it up to 94. If you want no margin for error, assume 95.
  • If the Kings beat Vancouver tonight, they win the season series. This has no impact on any playoff matchups, since the Canucks have so many more ROWs.
  • As hard as it is to root for the Sharks and Stars tonight, losses for the Flames and Avalanche would be devastating for those teams.
  • And I don't really have a preference as to first round opponent,. Only that we have one.
