latest on the playoff race
  • What Happened Last Night?
    • The Good: Flames got whomped in St. Louis, just what the Kings needed.
    • The Bad: The Wild and Jets both pulled off big wins, only 3 Pacific teams in the playoffs at this point. The system is crazy.
    • The Odd: The Kings didn't even play, but ended up 3rd in the pacific.
  • Tonight's Games That Matter and Your Guide For Rooting:
    • Kings @ Ducks. There is one game you need to focus on tonight and it's a doozy. The two teams are in very different positions; Ducks aren't really worried about points, the Kings need two every night. Here's our preview!
Legend
D - Division Leader, X - Clinched Playoffs, Y - Clinched Division, Z - Clinched Conference, P - Clinched Presidents' Trophy
GR - Games Remaining, W - Wins, L - Losses, OT - OT/Shootout losses (worth one point), PTS - Points
ROW - Regulation and overtime wins -- wins excluding shootout victories
+/- Goal differential, LY PTS - Point total of NHL team with SAME seed at the same point in the 2010-11 season
L10 - Record in last ten games, H/R LEFT - Breakdown of home/road games remaining on the schedule
Tie-Breaking procedure
Division leaders are seeded 1, 2, and 3 in Conference standings. If two or more clubs are tied in points during the regular season, the standing of the clubs is determined in the following order:
  • The fewer number of games played (i.e., superior points percentage).
  • The greater number of games won, excluding games won in the Shootout.
  • The greater number of points earned in games between the tied clubs. If two clubs are tied, and have not played an equal number of home games against each other, points earned in the first game played in the city that had the extra game shall not be included. If more than two clubs are tied, the higher percentage of available points earned in games among those clubs, and not including any "odd" games, shall be used to determine the standing.
  • The greater differential between goals for and against for the entire regular season.
