Chicago, Calgary, and Anaheim won tonight.
Dallas is going to have to win out, and trust Chicago can only gain 2/4 points, and Anaheim 1/4 if they hope to pass them in the standings.

Hossa's Goal


Hossa kicked it.
It really did not matter whether it crossed the line or not.
Even the Chicago commentators thought it was a no goal, after viewing in 10 times, and finally realizing he kicked it.
But they got the goal, and Chicago won last night...

Almost time for this ownerless organ-i-zation to pack up the gear and get the golf clubs out! JOY!

What's that, 3rd straight year to miss the playoffs! I forget.

Here we go.
Final 2 games.
Chicago has a home-and-home against Detroit.
Anaheim has a home-and-home against Los Angeles.
Dallas plays at both Colorado and Minnesota.
If Dallas can win out, and either Anaheim only get 1/4 points, or Chicago only get 2/4 points, Dallas is in.

Razor mentioned during last nights game, that the Avs have out scored Dallas 13 - 3 (or was it 13 -1) in the last three games at the Pesi Center. :)

Best scenario:
  • Stars defeat the Avalanche tonight
  • Stars defeat the Wild Sunday afternoon
  • The Blackhawks lose at least one of their two remaining games (both against the Red Wings)
Correct?


So ... we are rooting for the Red Wings now – geez!

Tonights game @ the Avs is goning to be a real nail biter. I here that finger nails are very constipating, so I going to go by Wally World on the way home and stock up on stool sotftener.

If the Blackhawks lose in regulation tonight, and the Stars win, Stars are basically in.
The points would be even, and the Stars would hold the tiebreaker.

I can't see the Stars losing their last game against such an easy team with everything on the line.

The Stars aren't just battling Chicago, though.
The Stars are in if they win out and...
-Nashville loses out
(v. Columbus & @ St. Louis)
-Phoenix loses out
(v. San Jose & @ San Jose)
-Anaheim gets 1/4 points in final 2 games
(v. L.A. & @ L.A.)
-Chicago gets 2/4 points in final 2 games
(v. Detroit & @ Detroit)

The ROW (Regulation + Overtime Wins) is the first tiebreaker now, instead of how the teams did against each other in regular season.

That's a big if, a really big if! Espically the part about the Stars winning tonight. Lately they always seem to play down to the level of their opponent!

Easy, you said easy! Nooooooooooo!

It's never easy.

There are now only 3 teams still in the race, outside of Dallas, since Nashville won tonight.
Chicago won as well, but has yet to secure.

Anaheim is in.
Phoenix is in.
Nashville is in.
Dallas goes from 4 options to 1 in a night.
It is between Dallas and Chicago now.
Chicago must lose in regulation, and Dallas must win in either regulation or overtime.
If Chicago loses, there is no doubt in my mind Dallas will be in.
Dallas should know the outcome of the game before theirs begins.
If it comes down to their needing a win Sunday night, they will get it.
Phoenix must win on Saturday.
Otherwise, Detroit would not be able to catch San Jose, and would remain in the #2 spot no matter what, giving them no reason to give Chicago a game.

...I don't like this.
But, at least we know Vancouver is rooting for Dallas!

Well, here we go.

I believe that Detroit will pull through.
All signs are certainly pointing to a Chicago win, but I feel the Hockey Gods are pulling for the Stars.
That, and I have invested way too much faith in this team through the past few months for them not too pull through.
