Kings are 23-15-3, 49 points. That's a 98 point pace, which will be good enough for the playoffs. To keep that pace, we need 24 of the 40 points possible in the next twenty games. That's, 12-8-0, or somewhere in the neighborhood of 11-7-2, if you assume the Kings will have one or two OTSOLs over twenty games. They would then be 34-22-5, 73 points, 21 games left.

Three game series against DET is kinda important. But it's all important.
