Chicago gets knocked out if Dallas wins in regulation and the Hawks lose in regulation to the Wings.

This is what it looks like.


Dallas would have to lose too for Chicago to be 8th

Hence Chicago/Dallas

Doesn't really matter though because the Wings can only face Phoenix or Nashville.

Other way around...I'm pretty sure.

If I'm right, they're better off losing tomorrow. Give me Phoenix over Nashville.

Nope.

If we win, we get Phoenix no matter what. If Chicago wins we get Nashville.

Top 4 seeds are set:
1. Van
2. SJ
3. Det
4. Ana

Chicago wins:
5. Chi
6. Nsh
7. Phx
8. LA

Chicago lose in OT/SO:
5. Nsh
6. Phx
7. Chi
8. LA

Chicago lose in regulation:
5. Nsh
6. Phx
7. LA
8. Chi or Dal (If Dallas wins in regulation/OT)

The only part that might be off is if Chicago wins in a SO, it's a three-way tie with Phoenix and Nashville. Chicago has the best point% in games against them, so they would still get 5th. I'm not sure if three-way rules would still apply to to Phoenix and Nashville or if they'd then revert to a regular tiebreaker. In three-way rules, Phoenix beats Nashville.

Yeah, I fixed my post. I was thinking Phoenix had the tiebreaker over Nashville, but they updated the standings.

Technically, Dallas needs to win in regulation or OT. SO win does them no good.

What a relief! Everything going according my evil master plan!

Also, is it just me, or did it seem like the Sharks and Wings were both in a race for 3rd these past few games?

Anyway, it's not often that I get to root for my two favorite teams, going into the playoffs, in a way that coincides with what is best for both, but this was the night, and this is that time.

As a Sharks fan, I obviously want see them face the beat-up Kings for the first round - not Nashville or Phoenix, even though we won our season series against all three.

As a Wings fan (second only to Sharks, of course), I don't want to see them go against the Preds! I didn't want to see EITHER team go against the Ducks (OR Chicago), but now that the Ducks are safely bumped to 4th, the Preds are the only team left that I really worried about for the Wings. Not Chicago so much, for some reason. Chicago is brutal, but I think the Wings are much better.

That's perfect, because the Wings have lots of incentive to beat Chicago in regulation tomorrow, which will likely place them against Phoenix, and the Wings are more than a match for Phoenix, I think. I just hope they beat them in regulation - otherwise, the Sharks will face Chicago...again. The only consolation for that - we have their "defending Stanley Cup goaltender" in net this time, and he's as hot as ever.

GO WINGS!!!

I may be buckled as hell right now, but DET/NSH or DET/PHX is not exciting at all for me as a fan. For thef****** love of god, could we get a playoff series that would wanna make fans tune in??? Game one against either team will be a snoozefest win or lose. It's garbage, knowing that these two jokes and boring ass teams are the Red Wings first round opponent makes me so unexcited for the playoffs it isnt even funny.

the common consensus seems to be the 3 way tie rule will apply to all 3 teams. so if chicago wins in a SO, phoenix will be ahead of Nashville

Which team in the west worries you the most?

Right now I feel like it's San Jose for me.
