Correct me if I'm wrong, but this is how I am interpreting the conference standings:
If Phoenix loses in regulation to San Jose, Anaheim beats L.A. in regulation, and Chicago beats Detroit, the Preds would wind up 6th in the conference. If Chicago loses to Detroit, the Preds would remain in 5th.
Phoenix gaining one point passes the Preds in the standings, but Los Angeles has to win in regulation or overtime (non-shootout) to pass the Preds in the standings.
Chicago losing tomorrow makes the Preds no worse than 7th. Chicago winning means that they pass the Preds in the standings, and the previously mentioned games will have a big impact on where the Preds finish.
The best case scenario leaves the Preds in 5th, the worst case leaves them in 8th. Please correct me if I am incorrect.
