A possibility when the puck drops with the Kings: Sharks win=4th place, Sharks regulation loss=7th place.

Would be true if STL gets 2 points in last two games, and MIN wins last two. STL would have 58 and MIN 57, with SJ and LAK both having 57 going into their game. SJ win = 59 pts. SJ reg loss = 57, and MIN wins tiebreaker.

So SJ win would give them home ice vs STL in 1st round.
SJ OT/SO win would give them home ice vs LAK in 1st round.
SJ reg loss would give them ANA in 1st round.
SJ OT/SO loss would give them VAN in 1st round.
