that's not what ESPN says: http://sports.espn.g...nhl/tiebreakers
And if the Jackets are able to catch up in that regard in either case, it won't matter because the Wings will be going golfing instead of the playoffs anyway.
Honestly, at this point, missing the playoffs might be what this franchise needs to shake up the paradigm and get the staleness of the roster and attitude out of the way.
If you're not playing to win the Cup, you're doing it wrong. Just to make the playoffs for some silly streak is not enough.
Note that I said final standings. Every team will have the same number of games played at the end of the season, making line #1 irrelevant for the purposes of tiebreaking. And were the Wings to have played the same number of games as the Jackets as of today, they'd still currently be ahead of that team in the standings.
It's obviously true that the Blue Jackets will be ahead of the Wings in the standings if they've got a greater number of points.
Well there are 8 teams ahead of us in points and ROW, so this is how many angels can dance on a head of a pin.
There are seven teams ahead of the Wings in ROW, and San Jose is not one of them.
