THESE STANDINGS ARE TRUE - Friday's Standings in Points-Blown (Kings Idle)

New, comments

Tonight's results...

The Good: Preds lose, Avs lose.

The Bad: Wings win, Ducks win, Stars win.

So where does that leave us?

Kings are still tied at 5th, 1 point from 4th, 7 points from 9th. Nashville is creeping down toward Detroit, away from the Kings, who are now 4 points ahead of the Preds. 

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. 

  1. San Jose Sharks 29 (1) +12
  2. Chicago Blackhawks 30 (2) +11
  3. Vancouver Canucks 38 (3) +3
  4. Colorado Avalanche 40 (5) +1
  5. Phoenix Coyotes 41 (4) 0
  6. Los Angeles Kings 41 (6) --
  7. Nashville Predators 45 (7) -4
  8. Detroit Red Wings 47 (8) -6
  9. Calgary Flames 48 (9) -7
  10. Dallas Stars 49 (10) -8
  11. Minnesota Wild 50 (11) -9
  12. St. Louis Blues 52 (13) -11
  13. Anaheim Ducks 53 (12) -12
  14. Columbus Blue Jackets 61 (14) -20
  15. Edmonton Oilers 66 (15) -25

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.
