A Quick (Kings-centric) Guide to What You Want

Last night's games:

The Good: PHI beats CHI. (The Hawks are now only 3 points-blown ahead of the Kings.)

The Bad: NSH beats EDM. (The Preds are kind of off our radar for now -- too high up in the standings -- but I still want them to lose.)

Tonight's games:

[asterisks reflect my own subjective notion of which games are more important to the Kings than others -- your mileage may vary]

  • ****BOS @ LAK (Go Kings!)
  • ***STL @ COL (Go regulation! No Bettman Point! -- as long as someone loses I'm happy.)
  • **NSH @ CGY (Go Preds! -- we can't have the Flames getting hot now.)
         *DAL @ VAN (Go Canucks! -- we still have a slllllim chance of catching the Stars :))/

Before tonight's games, the Kings are 3 points from 8th, 6 points from 5th (but only 4 points-blown from 5th, since PHX has played one more game than LAK).
