Red Deer vs Medicine Hat
Prince Albert vs Saskatoon
Spokane vs Seattle
Prince George vs Tri-City
Saskatoon can jump from 7th place to 5th with a win tonight and give themselves a 3 point lead on Brandon. With a win, Seattle would be 1 point away from Victoria and the final spot in the playoffs, while Spokane is already set to play Vancouver in the first round. Prince George needs a win tonight to stay in the playoff picture, they are 5 points back with 3 games to go.
YES, Seattle scores to take the lead.
Red Deer 4 vs Medicine Hat 2 F http://www.whl.ca/schedule/show/game/60149
Prince Albert 5 vs Saskatoon 11 F http://www.whl.ca/schedule/show/game/60150
Spokane 1 vs Seattle 3 F http://www.whl.ca/schedule/show/game/60151
Prince George 5 vs Tri-City 4 F/OT http://www.whl.ca/schedule/show/game/60152
Jesse Forsberg buries a feed from younger brother Alex to win it in OT for Prince George. With the Win, Prince George stays alive in the playoff race and Seattle is within 1 point of the Royals for the final spot.
Beautiful, Seattle hangs on for the win v. Spokane.
Seattle trumps Spokane 3-1 now giving the Thunderbirds 1 game in hand and 1 point behind the Royals.
Prince George is still fighting to the end snuffing out the Americans 5-4 in overtime. Cougars are still in 10th place, and and if all the worlds were in perfect alignment they could still make the playoffs.
So here's the NHL 12 predictions using the standings as of right now...
1) Edmonton 4 vs 8) Brandon 3
2) Moose Jaw 4 vs 7) Regina 3
3) Medicine Hat 3 vs 6) Kootenay 4
4) Calgary 4 vs Saskatoon 3
1) Tri-City 4 vs 8) Victoria 1
2) Kamloops 3 vs 7) Everett 4
3)Portland 4 vs 6) Kelowna 2
4) Vancouver 4 vs 5) Spokane 3
1) Edmonton 2 vs 6) Kootenay 4
2) Moose Jaw 4 vs 4) Calgary 1
1) Tri-City 2 vs 7) Everett 4
3) Portland 4 vs 4) Vancouver 3
2) Moose Jaw 4 vs 6) Kootenay 3
3) Portland 1 vs 7) Everett 4
2) Moose Jaw 2 vs Everett 4
So Everett wins? haha a bit off if you ask me. I'll do another one of these when the spots are finallized and i'll do a bit of tweaking to the teams.
Moose Jaw vs Brandon
Lethbridge vs Calgary
Edmonton vs Kootenay
Prince Albert vs Regina
Everett vs Kelowna
Spokane vs Kamloops
Portland vs Victoria
Everett and Victoria in action tonight, both fighting for a playoff berth. I won't be home until 11:30 or so tonight so the thread will not be updated til' then.
In the East, Brandon, Regina and Kootenay are in a tight race for 5th as Saskatoon is at 81 points in 5th, but the other 3 teams behind have a game in hand.
Oh, and Everett can clinch a spot if Vic loses in regulation and the Tips get 2 points.
Moose Jaw 3 vs Brandon 2 F/SO http://www.whl.ca/schedule/show/game/60153
Lethbridge 5 vs Calgary 2 F http://www.whl.ca/schedule/show/game/60154
Edmonton 5 vs Kootenay 4 F/OT http://www.whl.ca/schedule/show/game/60155
Prince Albert 1 vs Regina 4 F http://www.whl.ca/schedule/show/game/60156
Everett 2 vs Kelowna 4 F http://www.whl.ca/schedule/show/game/60157
Kamloops 4 vs Spokane 6 F http://www.whl.ca/schedule/show/game/60158
Portland 3 vs Victoria 4 F http://www.whl.ca/schedule/show/game/60159
- With the Victoria win and a Everrett loss, the Royals bump Everett out of 7th and into 8th with a 1 point lead. Everett still has a game in hand.
- Suffering a 4-3 loss to Victoria, the Winterhawks fail to tie Tri-City for 1st in the West.
- With the 4-1 win over Prince Albert, the Pats have passed both Saskatoon and Kootenay and have taken 5th place, Kootenay lost their game in Overtime. Both Saskatoon and Kootenay are 1 point behind Regina with 70GP each.
Friday/Saturday's gonna be hella intense. Giants with a back to back against the Rockets, and Chiefs with games against Seattle and Tri-City.
If Giants win both games, then we've got home ice for sure. If we lose one, we have to hope Spokane does the same.
If Giants win and Chiefs lose in regulation tomorrow night, Giants have home ice for sure.
Calgary vs Kootenay
Moose Jaw vs Prince Albert
Brandon vs Regina
Saskatoon vs Swift Current
Edmonton vs Medicine Hat
Lethbridge vs Red Deer
Prince George vs Kamloops
Seattle vs Spokane
Everett vs Tri-City
Portland vs Victoria
Kelowna vs Vancouver
Big night in the WHL. Prince George needs a win to stay in contention and if Everrett even gets 1 point, PG's playoff hopes are gone. With a Seattle win and a Everett loss, The T-Birds can tie the Tips for 8th, which Seattle would take 8th if it came to a tiebreaker since Seattle has 3 more regulation wins than Everett.

Since Victoria won, If Everett loses in regulation, the Royals clinch a spot. If Seattle gets a point, there is no clinch and the Cougars are out.
It's official. The Victoria Royals are in the playoffs!
Woohoo!!! Seattle 52 points 70 GP
Everett 52 points 71 GP
only spot left for playoffs is #8
next game for both teams is tomorrow @Seattle, it's gonna be so epic!!
The Prince George Cougars are now out of the hunt for 8th place. Seattle vs Everett tomorrow night for the huge 2 point lead for 8th. Seattle has a game in hand so if Seattle wins they clinch the final spot in the West.
Very exciting Vancouver vs Kelowna game. 13,000 strong at the Pacific Coliseum. Jordan Martinook with a hat-trick and the OT winner. Rockets D Damon Severson scored a beautiful coast to coast goal in the 3rd. With the win, Vancouver clinches home ice vs the Chiefs in the 1st round.
