Tuesday/Wednesday: The Points You Blew, the Record You Need

New, comments

The Good: Wings lose, Wild half-lose, Avs lose, Ducks lose, Stars lose, Canucks half-lose.

The Bad: Flames win, Preds win, Canucks win, Kings half-lose, Yotes win (3pt all-rival game grrrrr).

And as a result...

Three points separate 3 from 6. Six points separate 7 from 10. 

Here are the standings*:

  1. San Jose Sharks 37 (1) +11
  2. Chicago Blackhawks 39 (2) +9
  3. Vancouver Canucks 49 (3) 0
  4. Phoenix Coyotes 49 (4) 0
  5. Los Angeles Kings 49 (5) --
  6. Colorado Avalanche 52 (6) -3
  7. Nashville Predators 55 (7) -6
  8. Calgary Flames 57 (8) -8
  9. Detroit Red Wings 58 (9) -9
  10. St. Louis Blues 61 (11) -12
  11. Dallas Stars 62 (10) -13
  12. Minnesota Wild 62 (12) -13
  13. Anaheim Ducks 64 (13) -15
  14. Columbus Blue Jackets 71 (14) -22
  15. Edmonton Oilers 82 (15) -35

And here's the record each team needs from here on, to get to the assumed (by me) magical point total of 95.

  1. San Jose Sharks 1-16-0
  2. Chicago Blackhawks 1-15-0
  3. Vancouver Canucks 5-10-0
  4. Phoenix Coyotes 5-10-0
  5. Los Angeles Kings 6-10-0
  6. Colorado Avalanche 7-8-1
  7. Nashville Predators 9-7-0
  8. Calgary Flames 10-6-0
  9. Detroit Red Wings 10-5-1
  10. St. Louis Blues 13-5-0
  11. Dallas Stars 12-3-1
  12. Minnesota Wild 13-3-1
  13. Anaheim Ducks 13-2-1
  14. Columbus Blue Jackets
  15. Edmonton Oilers

*standings in points-blown explained: 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.
