Kings-Centric Standings in Points-Blown (FRIDAY UPDATE)

The Good: KINGS WIN, Calgary loses, St. Louis loses, Wild "half-lose", Preds lose, Stars lose, DUCKS LOSE (always good). 

The Bad: Yotes win, Canucks win, Wings win. 

The nominally (but not really so) Bad: Jackets win, Sharks win, Hawks win.

FRIDAY UPDATE: Nashville lost. They're even with the Kings now.

 

Two points "awarded" for every loss, one point for every OTL/SOL. Lowest point total is best. Number in parentheses is the official standings (via ESPN). Last number (+/-) is number of points (in my system) ahead or behind Los Angeles. Because it's a Kings-centric universe. 

Kings are three points from 4th, three points from 9th. The gap between 2nd and 3rd is widening, as is the gap between 13th and 14th. 

  1. San Jose Sharks 28 (1) +13
  2. Chicago Blackhawks 28 (2) +13
  3. Colorado Avalanche 36 (3) +5
  4. Vancouver Canucks 38 (5) +3
  5. Phoenix Coyotes 39 (4) +2
  6. Nashville Predators 41 (6) 0
  7. Los Angeles Kings 41 (7) --
  8. Detroit Red Wings 42 (8) -1
  9. Calgary Flames 44 (9) -3
  10. Dallas Stars 47 (10) -6
  11. Anaheim Ducks 49 (11) -8
  12. St. Louis Blues 49 (13) -8
  13. Minnesota Wild 50 (12) -9
  14. Columbus Blue Jackets 57 (14) -16
  15. Edmonton Oilers 62 (15) -21

Tie breaker is games-played, except that the winner of the tie breaker is the team who has played more games. If this seems counter-intuitive, consider this: A team with a 10-2 record is better than a team with a 2-2 record, who is, in turn better than a team that's 0-2.
