TIME TO BRING IN THE BIG GUNS !!!





========================================

On Saturday night, the Kings host the Sharks and the Blues host the Blackhawks.

In short: GO KINGS !!! ... GO Blackhawks !!!
-If the Blues win they clinch 4th and the winner of Kings-Sharks takes 5th.
-The Kings can clinch 4th if they beat the Sharks in any fashion AND the Blues lose in any fashion.
-If the Kings lose in OT/SO the best they can finish is 5th — with a Blues regulation loss.
-If the Kings lose in regulation they will finish 6th and face the Canucks.
-The only way the Sharks can finish 4th is win a win in any fashion and a Blues regulation loss.


Tiebreakers:
-The Kings own the tie-breaker over both the Blues and Sharks.
-The Blues own the tie-breaker over the Sharks.
-The Sharks lose all tie-breakers.

Probabilities:
-The Kings finish 4th: 33.3 %
