So what happens if we end up with 59 points do we go 4th or 5th? Or does it depend on who we are tied with?

It would depend on the SJ/LA outcome. if SJ and STL end with 59 points, Blues take 4th on the tiebreaker plus getting home ice while facing SJ first, instead of LA. If LA and STL end with 59 points, LA wins the tiebreaker and Blues finish 5th, plus get the joy of playing LA (with LA having home ice) who the Blues have not defeated in 8 straight games. (granted, one was a SO loss).

Huge win tonight though. Did NOT want to have to face the Hawks or Ducks in the first round. Much happier about this :okman:

Minnesota still has a shot at 6th. If the Wild wins out and SJ loses in regulation to LA, the Wild finishes in 6th on ROWs.

Today's action (26 Apr):

Edmonton @ Minnesota: Wild are currently in the 8th spot (1 point behind Detroit), but have only played 46 games. They host Edmonton tonight and play Colorado Saturday, and could feasibly finish with 57 points. If they do this, and if LA beats San Jose in regulation Saturday, Minnesota would be in 6th, and San Jose would fall to 7th.

Calgary @ Chicago: No impact. Calgary is eliminated and Chicago has clinched the President's Trophy. The only question is whether Chicago rests any of their starters.

Colorado @ Phoenix: No impact. Both teams emliniated from playoff contention.

----------

If the Blues beat the Blackhawks tomorrow (60 points): we finish in 4th, period.

If we lose in OT/Shootout (59 points): we are tied for points with the winner of the LA/SJ game. If that winner is LA, they get 4th and we get 5th. If that winner is SJ, they tie us for points but we hold the tiebreaker- we get 4th and SJ gets 5th.

If we lose in regulation (58 points): If the LA/SJ game ends in regulation, the winner gets 4th, we get 5th, and the loser gets 6th (unless the loser is SJ and Minnesota wins both their final two as mentioned above). If LA/SJ goes to OT/Shootout, the winner gets 4th. If SJ is the OT/SO winner, they get 4th, LA gets 5th, StL gets 6th. If LA wins in OT/SO, they get 4th, StL gets 5th, SJ gets 6th.

Other than home ice advantage it doesn't mean much, at least not to me. Again: I'm just thrill someone else can take the first stab at knocking off the Hawks or Ducks the first round and it doesn't have to be us.

I really want sharks first round there is no doubt that we are a good enough team to beat LA, but I think they may still be in our head a little not to mention the stats against them. Ill let someone else wear them down a bit first lol.

Today's action (27 Apr--final day!):

Detroit @ Dallas: A wins doesn't do the Stars any good for themselves, but it does do a lot of good for the rest of the Western Conference, as it would give Minnesota and Columbus a shot at the 7th and 8th spots, thus eliminating Detroit from playoff contention.

Nashville @ Columbus: This year, it's Nashville that is the bottom feeder in the Central. Columbus has to win to have a chance at making the playoffs.

Minnesota @ Colorado: The Wild are currently in 8th, so all they really need is a loss by Columbus in order to make the playoffs. However, I'm sure they'd like a win and a Detroit loss, so they can face Anaheim instead of Chicago. And to make Detroit suck it.

Chicago @ St. Louis: This is it, boys- win and you get the 4th seed. If not, suck it up and get ready for Round 1 anyway.

Vancouver @ Edmonton: No impact.

Phoenix @ Anaheim: No impact.

San Jose @ Los Angeles: Pretty big game in that it is the one that affects us the most if we don't beat Chicago. As it's been stated, if we win our game, we're in 4th no matter what. If we get one point and LA beats SJ, LA gets 4th and we get 5th. If we get one point and SJ beats LA, we still get 4th and SJ gets 5th. If we lose and LA wins (regulation or overtime), LA is 4th and we get 5th. If we lose and SJ wins in regulation, SJ is 4th, we are 5th, and LA is 6th. If we lose and SJ wins in OT/SO, SJ gets 4th, LA gets 5th, and we get 6th. Got that?

Update:

BLUES WIN! Secure 4th seed and home ice for at least the first round. :letsgoblues: We play the winner of the LA/SJ game.

Red Wings win. They get the #7 seed, and to top it off, they don't even get the pleasure of being eliminated in the first round by a division rival. I have a feeling Anaheim will make short work of this one.

Minnesota wins, Columbus wins, but the Wild get the 8th spot from the tiebreaker. Tough way to lose out. Good luck in the East, Columbus. Take care of JD and Jarmo.

LA/SJ playing now for 5th/6th. Winner gets us, loser gets Vancouver.
