9-12 all have games in hand against Winnipeg. The 8 seed is up for grabs in the East with any stumble a potential season ender.

Not surprising considering their travel schedule

Dallas is the #3 seed as of now.

We need to win tonight. If we take care of that, best case sees the Blues and Wings lose in regulation which puts us four points back but with a game in hand on each of them.

Looks like Sean Avery's time with the Rangers organization is at an end.

I think the Blues just put the final nail in any "Anaheim comeback and make the playoffs" talk...

they would now have to go 12-2 just to make 92 its...

The Blues are playing unbelievable hockey right now. However they are a young team and there is something to be said about peaking to early. I don't see any way the Blues can keep up their pace into the playoffs. Still would rather see them the. Detroit in round 1. (Even though neither is an attractive option)

If we go 5 and 10 we'll be in the playoffs.

If we go 8-7 we'll (probably) finish 5th or 6th

If we go 10-5 we'll more than likely be 4th maybe 5th

If we can somehow go 12-3 we'll for sure be 4th..possibly take the division lead.

If we go 15-0 we will probably be in the points lead.

Winning out still doesn't guarantee passing the Blues in the standings. Even 12-3 doesn't guarantee 4th depending on who those losses are against and what the Wings do in their remaining games. 10-5 puts us with a very solid shot at 5th and needing help to pass the Wings for 4th. There are so many variables right now that there is no way of saying any record gets us a certain seed for sure.

Our boys control their destiny against the Wings right now at four points back and two head to head matchups remaining. Win those two in regulation and the Preds just need to equal the Wings record in the remaining 13 games to take the ROW tiebreak. We need the Blues to stumble on their upcoming road trip to have a chance of catching them.

Based on my rough math, 19 is the current magic number to clinch a playoff spot. This is a combination of Preds points won and LA points lost. That's 5 wins out of 15 games.

Using Sportsclubstats chart 93 points is a 97.3% chance of playoffs. I see it as the Preds get 97.3% and the other teams will screw up 2.7%

Milwaukee is still within striking distance for a playoff spot. 2 points from 8th. They have 18 games left in the season.

Cyclones have a 5pt buffer over the 9th place team with 13 games left.

Looks like the Kings are going to lose. They looked like they had it for a bit and they definitely controlled a lot of the game.

If we're not going to get fourth(we're not, IMO), I'm hoping to somehow fall into sixth.

Would much rather play Dallas or SJ without home-ice than Detroit.

Looks like Blues unreachable.

We'll have to go 16-0 and they'll need to drop 4 in last 11 for us to get them.

Are you ready for some Wings???

if LA wins, and Calgary beats San Jose in OT/SO, there would be 4 teams tied for 8th with 78 points....
