Dustin Brown will have a hearing this afternoon with Shanahan for his elbow to the face of Pominville. I don't see how he escapes a suspension

Wow, that's a pretty ugly elbow.  What a huge screw up that was.  I'm sure Brown's pissed at himself for that one.

Browner's dumb for extending out his elbow. He could have used his shoulder to protect himself in that situation, absolutely no need to extend your elbow. Especially when you're in possession of the puck.

Yeah, Datsyuk does virtually the same thing all the time along the boards, but instead of using his elbow he uses his shoulder and steps into the oncoming guy's chest.  Brown needed to do that there, but used the elbow instead and got it up high.  He's not a dirty player or anything, but a bonehead play.

as it looks today, we need Columbus to lose one game and then that would give us a one game mulligan...

 

we have 50pts and possibly 6 more available

 

they have 51pts and possible 4 more available...

 

winning two games each would force us to get at least a tie point in Dallas...Really, the ONLY game I am worried about is that Dallas game.  The Wings seem to play pretty well against LA and own Nashville, so if they can get 4 points right away, I will feel good about the Dallas game, unless Columbus gets 4 points too...We need Columbus to drop one (preferably in regulation) and we need 4 points before Sunday...not 2, not 3, FOUR.

 

7th place is not out of reach yet either unless Minny wins both of their remaining games, but let them drop one and Detroit could very well leap over them on Sunday! Hell, even both Minny and St, Louis drop the next two in a row and Detroit wins 3 in regulation we would be tied for 6th, both St. Louis and Detroit having 22 ROW...in that case it would come down to the last deciding factor to determine our seed because:

 

Detroit and St. Louis will both have 22 ROW - tie

 

Head to Head they have played 5 times, according the NHL rules your throwout the first game (Detroit Loss) and then sort by record of the remaining four games..... 2-2.  tie...

 

It would then come down to goals for/against differential for the entire season, which right now belongs to St. Louis @ +9 and Detroit is +1.  I think overcoming a -8 difference is way too much to ask, but a couple a shutout either way and you never know!

 

Funny thing is, we win tonight and leap over Columbus...tomorrow Columbus plays Dallas...ugh.  Who do you root for? ugh! I'd say Dallas and then damn well better take out Nashville next so Sunday's game means nothing...if we lose to LA and Dallas beats Columbus, then Columbus beats Nashville, it makes BOTH Nashville and Dallas must win games....yuck, this is messy.

 

So basically, like I said, take care of business now and beat LA and Nashville and then Sunday you could get the 1 point and be good. Unless Columbus drops both, then I think Dallas and Columbus will both be out....bottom line win all three and keep the "streak" alive!

Every team that's playing Columbus can be the spoiler so there is some motivation there, especially for the Preds.

Isn't the same true for every team playing us though?  They all know we're still in the hunt.

If the Wings win tonight AND tomorrow AND the Stars beat the Jackets in regulation tomorrow, we're in. Doesn't matter what happens at Dallas on Saturday. I say if that happens we rest some guys for round one.

It is but some people think teams might just roll over or "not do us any favors" cuz they're already out. There's still incentive there.

I would almost rather Dallas win in a SO though, considering they still hold the tiebreak in the ROW column just in case. Because even if Columbus got the point tomorrow then beat Nashville they AND we lost to Dallas, we would hold the tie break against Columbus in ROW. I would just hate for Dallas to have that over our head and just muck up the game and shoot for the shootout to beat us somehow.

 

I do like how you simplified it though. It's pretty much what I was thinking, win the 4 points now and not have to worry about Sunday too much.  And if Columbus does us a favor and loses in regulation either to Dallas or Nashville, Sunday is a practice day!

Exactly! I see three tough games...gotta get ahead by two and maintain it! Enough of these 1 goal leads with 5:00 mins to go in the game.

What does China have to do with this?

 

Anyhow, I agree, I can see all three games being the hardest ones of the year to win...Nashville spoiled our playoff party last season and even with them not even making the playoffs, they could spoil it for us again by beating us and losing to Columbus...

I wouldn't wish injury on anyone but if Bouwmeester had a season ending injury in the final couple games of the regular season it would be hard not to laugh.

77% chance of making playoffs as of right now.
Think for yourself. Question authority. Throughout human history as our species has faced the frightening, terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are or where we are going in this ocean of chance, it has been the authorities, the political, the religious, the educational authorities who attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rules, regulations, informing, forming in our minds their view of reality. To think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable, open mindedness, chaotic, confused vulnerability to inform yourself.

With a win tomorrow Dallas still has a chance to make the playoffs (if the Wings lose) so while they are both playing, Dallas will be playing for their playoff lives (as will Columbus) but I think Dallas will prevail because if Dallas loses then they pretty much are out especially with a Wings win....and if the Wings take care of Nashville again, we get a one game breather....
