Me too my question would be what would have have to see from O'Reilly to have him put back in this lineup for playoff time? Its been so long since O'Reilly has played. I would have preferred a Lindback start but I guess thats not going to happen. A Regulation/OT win gives the Preds the 4 seed that should be our goal tonight.

Have to, have to start Rinne. Getting that 4 seed is huge. Not only in getting home-ice, but we will likely either face PHX or LA, which would probably be the most beatable 1st round opponent we have ever faced. Not that it will be easy by any stretch... but certainly do-able.

Agreed. Play Rinne tonight. Let him rest Sunday and Monday. Get him back in practice on Tuesday, and he'll be ready to go Wednesday

Looking at tonight's game in a different manner, the Blues would have a much better chance of keeping their first-round draft pick this summer with a loss tonight.

Here's the deal: When the Blues made the trade with Colorado in February, included in the deal was a swap of conditional draft picks. The Blues agreed to give Colorado a first-round pick and the Avs would give the Blues a second-round pick.

The condition was that if the Blues finished in the bottom 10 in the league standings, Nos. 21-30, they could keep their first-round pick this year, but would then automatically give their first-rounder to Colorado next season.

If they finished No. 20 or higher in the standings, the first-rounder would automatically go to the Avs this year. (Whatever year the Blues give up the first-round pick, that's when they get the second-round pick from Colorado).

Going into tonight's game, the Blues are No. 20 in the standings, so as it stands now, the pick would go to Colorado. But depending on tonight's outcome, and the outcome of the Toronto-Montreal game, the Blues still have a chance to keep their pick.

The Blues have 85 points, tying them with the Maple Leafs. Both teams also have the same number of wins with 37. But this year, the NHL took shootout victories out of the win column when determining league standings. The Blues have four shootout wins this year and Toronto has five. So if you take those out, the Blues have 33 regulation/OT victories and Toronto has 32.

If the Blues lose to Nashville tonight, and if Toronto beats Montreal, the Blues would be 21st in the league standings and would keep their pick. (There's more to it if the games go into OT/shootout, but we'll cross that bridge later. Also, if the Blues lose and Minnesota wins Sunday against Dallas, the Blues could also keep the pick).

I want to agree. But for whatever reason, we seem to match up well with the Ducks.

LA would be ideal for you guys I think.

LA: G/G: 2.57 GA/G: 2.38 PK: 86% PP: 16.1%
NSH: G/G: 2.63 GA/G: 2.32 PK: 84.9% PP: 15.3%

They have an advantage on special teams, while you guys have an advantage at ES.

Add in that they are missing Kopitar and Williams, you guys, I feel, have an advantage.

I feel that is one series that you guys are clearly favored in. You just need to win it.

But they won the season 3-1, which usually means something I would think.

Their forecheck always seems to cause problems for our D.

What's At Stake On Saturday For The Preds:
Very simply if Nashville wins in regulation or overtime on Saturday night at St. Louis then the Preds will secure the No. 4 seed in the Conference and will host a first round playoff series.

If Nashville wins in a shootout, then the Preds would need either a Sharks win over Phoenix (regulation, overtime, or shootout) OR a Phoenix shootout win in order to secure the No. 4 seed. None of the other games on the schedule would matter for the Preds seeding. A Nashville shootout win and a Phoenix regulation or overtime (non-shootout) win and the Coyotes would earn the No. 4 seed on basis of the tiebreaker and Nashville would finish as the No. 5 seed.

If Nashville loses in overtime or a shootout, the Preds would finish no worse than the No. 6 seed and could still earn the No. 4 seed with the following help:
An Anaheim win over Los Angeles (any win -- regulation or OT/shootout)
AND
A San Jose win over Phoenix (any win -- regulation or OT/shootout)
In this scenario Nashville would finish the season with 100 points, Phoenix would finish with 99 or 100 points (but the Preds would own the tiebreaker advantage), Anaheim would finish with 99 points, Los Angeles would finish with 98 or 99 points, and Chicago would be able to do no better than 99 points.

If Nashville loses in regulation the Preds would be not be able to earn the No. 4 seed, but could finish anywhere from No. 5, No. 6, or No. 7 pending the results in the other games. Nashville has already secured no worse than the No. 7 seed.

Seeding Possibilities:
No. 1 seed - Vancouver is locked in to the #1 seed
No. 2 seed - To Be Determined (will be either San Jose or Detroit)
No. 3 seed - To Be Determined (will be either San Jose or Detroit)
No. 4 seed - To Be Determined (can be any of LA, NSH, PHX, ANA)
No. 5 seed - To Be Determined (can be any of LA, NSH, PHX, ANA, CHI)
No. 6 seed - To Be Determined (can be any of LA, NSH, PHX, ANA, CHI)
No. 7 seed - To Be Determined (can be any of LA, NSH, PHX, ANA, CHI)
No. 8 seed - To Be Determined (can be any of LA, ANA, CHI, DAL)

Nashville's tie-breaker situation vs. playoff pack
Anaheim - Anaheim has secured Tie-Breaker vs. Nashville. Anaheim won ROW
Chicago - ROW is tied (38 wins to 38 wins); Chicago won season series (8pts to 6pts).
Los Angeles - Nashville has secured Tie-Breaker vs. Los Angeles. Nashville won ROW
Phoenix - ROW is tied (38 wins to 38 wins); season series split (4pts to 4pts); Nashville leads goal differential (+27 goals to +7 goals).

It would be the ideal match-up for LA. We can't handle a three-man forecheck, and while I'm really liking what Blum has been able to do thus far, I wonder if he wouldn't fall prey to that forecheck just like every defenseman on this roster ,with perhaps the exception of Suter. They're also a bit bigger up front than we are. Not that we're really all that small, but we don't have any real behemoths like Penner or Handzus to throw out there.

I've said this before, I don't want to play any of the teams coming out of the Pacific. The Ducks and Sharks have humongous forwards that will eat us alive, I've already discussed the Kings, and we're 4-8 in Glendale since the lockout. I might be okay with playing Phoenix if we have home ice, but I'd really rather just drop down to sixth and play Detroit.

Win it for Warren.
