Los Angeles Kings Playoff Chances
Beat Stars 3-1, playoff odds up 2.8 to 99.8%
96 points * 45 27-6

Pretty good odds

It's all about seeding now.

If the Ducks win in regulation tomorrow, both the Kings and Ducks are in.

Need the Ducks to continue losing so we can eliminate them in the last two games and ensure that we clinch all at the same time

Post #1 updated. (I've been on vacation for a week - forgive the tardiness.)

Kings clinching scenarios:

Kings win one of their remaining 3 games.
Chicago loses two of their remaining 3 games in regulation (STL, @DET, DET).
Anaheim loses 2 of their last 3 games in regulation (SJ, LAK, @LAK).
Dallas loses one of their last 3 games in regulation (COL, @COL, @MIN).

Various tiebreak scenarios come in to play if the Kings tie any team in points that won't be settled until the season ends.

Yes PLEASE, I have little hair left to lose, and i generally dont bite my nails. Maybe we could even win 2 of last 3 or I could be greedy and ask for all three wins.

OK but I'd rather Chicago make it, as well.

A phenomonal scenario bettered only by the Waterfowl losing four in a row to end the season

It's entirely possible that LA, Phoenix and Nashville will be tied for points at the end of the season, which makes a win tonight critical. The Kings win tonight and they will earn the head-to-head tiebreaker vs. Phoenix and tie them and Nashville in the ROW 1st tiebreak category. A loss vs. Phoenix almost guarantees the Kings will lose the first tiebreak vs. Phoenix and puts them in jeopardy of losing it vs. Nashville as well.

-2 for everybody!!!!

PHX: -3.
Dallas: ELIMINATED

a win guarantees a top 6 seed.
a win and a Nashville/Phoenix loss guarantees a spot in the 4/5 series.

I'll keep this updated as tiebreakers get sorted out. Here's what is known as of tonight (4/6):

If the Kings go 2-0 in their final 2 games, they will clinch the 4th seed in the conference.
If the Kings earn 2-3 points in their final 2 games, they can finish no lower than 6th. No higher than 4th.
If the Kings earn 0-1 points in their final 2 games, they can finish no higher than 5th.

Consequently, the Kings magic number to clinch the #4 seed is 4 as of tonight. 2 Kings wins OR two losses by whichever team is in 5th (could be multiple teams in case of ties as it is tonight with Phoenix and Nashville), will guarantee the Kings the 4th seed.

The Kings can reach 102 points - no other team in contention can reach 102 points as of now except the Kings. They control their own destiny.

Kings games remaining: 2. Maximum points: 102
Nashville. Games remaining: 2. Maximum points: 101. Kings’ 4th seed magic number: 4
Phoenix. Games remaining: 2. Maximum points: 101. Kings’ 4th seed magic number: 4
Chicago. Games remaining: 2. Maximum Points: 99 Kings' 4th seed Magic number: 2
Anaheim. Games remaining: 2. Maximum points: 99. Kings’ 4th seed magic number: 2

Not quite right, Kings could finish 5th even with getting no points in the final two games. PHO has SJ back to back, NSH got STL back to back, CHI has DET back to back. If SJS, STL, DET sweep those, and LA gets nothing they still finish 5th.

Thanks Holden. Fixed post 1.

If the Kings earn 4 points in their final 2 games, they will clinch the 4th seed in the conference.
If the Kings earn 2-3 points in their final 2 games, they can finish no lower than 6th. No higher than 4th.
If the Kings earn 0-1 points in their final 2 games, they can finish no higher than 5th.

No worries, I love these threads thanks for doing the work. Actually NSH has STL and CBS not STL back to back but that doesnt change anything with regards to the Kings finishing at this point.

Here's what is known as of tonight (4/8):

If the Kings earn 2 points in their final game, they can finish no lower than 6th. No higher than 4th.
If the Kings earn 0-1 points in their final game, they can finish no higher than 7th due to the fact that Anaheim would have 2 more points in that case.

Nashville. Games remaining: 1. Maximum points: 101.
Phoenix. Games remaining: 1. Maximum points: 101.
Kings games remaining: 1. Maximum points: 100
Chicago. Games remaining: 1. Maximum Points: 99
Anaheim. Games remaining: 1. Maximum points: 99.

If Kings get 0-1 points tomorrow, they can finish no higher than 7th. Even with a point tomorrow, Kings would need Chicago to lose to Detroit for us to not have the 8 seed.
