Tuesday's Kings-Centric Standings in Points-Blown Will Make You Feel Better

Monday's and Tuesday's results all smushed together. (smushed is not a word.)...

The Good: (Monday) Kings win, Blues lose; (Tuesday) Preds half-lose, Flames lose, Canucks lose, Wings half-lose, Stars half-lose.

The Bad: (Monday) Kings lose, Sharks, Avs, Yotes and Ducks all win; (Tuesday) Blues win, Hawks win.

Got used to typing "Kings win." 

Here are the standings:

  1. San Jose Sharks 31 (1) +12
  2. Chicago Blackhawks 35 (2) +8
  3. Phoenix Coyotes 43 (4) 0
  4. Los Angeles Kings 43 (5) --
  5. Vancouver Canucks 44 (3) -1
  6. Colorado Avalanche 44 (6) -1
  7. Nashville Predators 49 (7) -6
  8. Calgary Flames 53 (8) -10
  9. Detroit Red Wings 53 (9) -10
  10. Dallas Stars 54 (10) -10
  11. Minnesota Wild 54 (12) -11
  12. Anaheim Ducks 55 (11) -12
  13. St. Louis Blues 59 (13) -16
  14. Columbus Blue Jackets 63 (14) -20
  15. Edmonton Oilers 74 (15) -31

These are standings in points-blown. 

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.

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.
