and down the stretch they come

we have a 1pt lead, but Det has a game. so what is left:

Nsh - @Edm, Edm, Det, Dal, Chi, StL, @Col
Det - Stl, Anh, @Nash, Dal, @Clb, Clb, @Chi, Chi

Dal, StL, and Chi are the same for both teams. so that leaves us with Edmx2, @Col vs them with Anh, Clb, @Clb & @Chi which is a push, maybe slight edge to us. so the home game vs Det is looming huge for the central title if not conference title(assuming neither team has too many brainfarts).

looking outside the central -Anh trails us by 3pts with a game:
Anh - Dal, @Det, @Chi, @Clb, @Stl, SJ, @Dal, @Clb
i think we have a greater edge here as most of these game should be difficult. just don't need to see and OT game vs Det.

Van trails us by 5pts with a game:
Van - Col, @Col, @LA, @Cal, Col, @SJ, @Phx
2 easy games and the other are vs PO teams. Col can make or break themselves with 3 games left against Van. don't think they can make up 5pts on us with 7 games left, but stranger things have happened.

still want Cal in the 1st round, which would mean we need to take the conference title.

Buff is even with 2 games:
Buff - Tor, @Tor, NJ, NYI, @Mtl, @Pitt, Bos, @Wsh, @Phl
several tough games before it eases up.

for us to take the president's we will almost need to win out. they will have to lose at least 2 and have an OTL. that may be a stretch, but hey with 7 games left we still have a good shot at the div, conf and NHL titles(which is a new feeling). we have come a long way to taking that first big step towards history. now nobody get hurt and everyone sleep in the hyperbaric chamber to heal-up fast for the POs.
