Magic numbers:

Columbus – 1
Dallas – 2 – Blues overall playoff magic number is 2
Detroit – 4
Minnesota – 6
San Jose – 9
LA – 10

– San Jose and LA have smaller magic numbers vs. Blues.
– Blues have clinched tiebreak against Columbus and San Jose.
– Blues would likely have tiebreak on Minnesota, would likely lose tiebreak with Dallas, LA. Tossup with Detroit.

Games remaining:

LA (Sun, Tues, Wed, Sat): vs. DAL, @MIN, @DET, vs. SJ
SJ (Sun, Tues, Wed, Sat): vs. CBJ, vs. DAL, @PHX, @LA
STL (Sun, Tues, Thurs, Sat): @COL, vs. COL, vs. CGY, vs. CHI
MIN (Sun, Tues, Fri, Sat): vs. CGY, vs. LA, vs. EDM, @COL
DET (Sat, Mon, Wed, Thurs, Sat): @VAN, vs. PHX, vs. LA, vs. NSH, @DAL
CBJ (Sun, Thurs, Sat): @SJ, @DAL, vs. NSH
DAL (Sun, Tues, Thurs, Sat): @LA, @SJ, vs. CBJ, vs. DET

If Vancouver wins in regulation tonight, then a win Sunday in Colorado clinches the Blues at least 7th (and avoiding Chicago).
