After games of 4/4/13:

As it will do, the target points has shifted again -- but this time in the Kings' favor, falling to 52 points. That translates to a need for the Kings to go 3-7-1 in the remaining 11 games (a percentage of .318).

While the Kings are in 4th according to the standings right now, they currently project to 5th place because of San Jose's game in hand and slightly better percentage at this moment. To catch San Jose for 4th and home ice in the first round, the Kings will need 60 points, or a record of 7-3-1 in the remaining games (a percentage of .682)... current projections have them going 6-4-1.

And the Kings STILL need their regional rivals to slip a full game off their pace in order for the head-to-head games between them to be enough to reel them into sight for the Pacific title... if the Kings were to go 11-0.
But San Jose is an easy fix even with their point percentage advantage. We have two games vs them, win them and we control our fate. Lose and we make things difficult, split and things stay the status quo.
