Edmonton's loss guaranteed us the 7th seed at worst, so no Detroit in the first round.

How we can clinch 4th by Tuesday ( ) in order of ease...

-A Colorado loss (PHX) or Nashville win on Tuesday clinches over the Lanche.
-A San Jose loss (PHX) on Monday and a Nashville win on Tuesday clinches over the Shark.
-If the Preds win on Tuesday and Anaheim would lose @ Vancouver and @ Calgary, we'd clinch over them by Tuesday.

Btw, Anaheim's last 5 games? @ Vancouver, @ Calgary, @ Edmonton, @ San Jose, Calgary.

That is brutal. All good and/or desperate teams. Not only could that stretch lock up 4th for us, hopefully it will also wear them down a little if they end up 5th (or 4th...). Something tells me this will go down to the Phoenix or Detroit game for us in terms of whether we're 4th or 5th...

In terms of the West race, what a great stretch run it will be. Here are some dates to watch...

4/12-4/13: San Jose and Vancouver play a home and home. That will be intense.
4/13: Colorado @ Calgary, Anaheim @ Edmonton, Vancouver @ San Jose
4/15: Calgary @ LA, Anaheim @ San Jose, Colorado @ Vancouver
4/17: Calgary @ Anaheim, Colorado @ Edmonton, LA @ San Jose
