Q is my standings. OFF. is the official (per ESPN) standings. PB is points-blown (2 points for a loss, 1 point for an OTSOL). The blue box shows the nine teams, and the record they need to get to 94 points. 

Five points separate 4th from 12th. Ranked by W%, Anaheim and Phoenix are worse than the official standings indicate, and the Wild and Avs are better. But it's tight tight tight.
