I hear ya, but I guess time heals all wounds. It is tough though, with Karmanos still tied to the Canes. What a ****** (though I'll admit that Hartford isn't the best market).

Tampa has FL at home this weekend. Can see them winning that one too.

1. (30.) Florida ------14 - 26 - 6 = 34 ROW: 11
2. (29.) Colorado-----15 - 24 - 7 = 37 ROW: 14
3. (28.) Tampa Bay---18 - 24 - 4 = 40 ROW: 17
4. (27.) NASHVILLE--16 - 21 - 9 = 41 ROW: 14
5. (26.) Edmonton----17 - 22 - 7 = 41 ROW: 15
6. (25.) Carolina------19 - 24 - 3 = 41 ROW: 18
7. (24.) Calgary-------19 - 23 - 4 = 42 ROW: 19


Remaining schedules

Florida: doesn't really matter, only Colorado can overtake them
Thurs: Toronto @ Florida
Sat: Florida @ Tampa

Colorado: To overtake them, COL must win both games, at least one must be in regulation or OT
Fri: Colorado @ Phoenix
Sat: Minnesota @ Colorado

Tampa: just get a point and we move ahead of them
Thurs: Tampa @ Boston
Sat: Florida @ Tampa

Nashville: I can't see us beating a desperate detroit team. depends on whether cbus is eliminated or not by sat but I don't see us beating either team.
Thurs: Nashville @ Detroit
Sat: Nashville @ Columbus

Edmonton: I would love for EDM to beat minny. One point from EDM in any game keeps them behind us.
Fri: Edmonton @ Minnesota
Sat: Vancouver @ Edmonton

Carolina: One point keeps them behind us.
Thurs: NYRangers @ Carolina
Sat: Carolina @ Pittsburgh

Calgary: One point keeps them behind us.
Thurs: Calgary @ St. Louis
Fri: Calgary @ Chicago



I think Tampa will be the best bet to get at least a point or two (or more) out of their games to move ahead in the draft standings. Really we just need them to get one point to move ahead of us (thanks to the ROW tiebreaker). Maybe Colorado will luck out and pull out 2 wins, but I doubt it. I can see Carolina maybe getting a point out of one of the games. But it does look like Tampa is our best hope for moving into a top 3 draft spot.

Good handy cheatsheet on the schedule- thanks. Currently, the Preds can finish between 2 and 7 inclusive (pre-lottery). Not a lot of clarity likely to come out of tonight. Here are the scenarios:

Preds win
If the Preds win, then 2nd becomes impossible.
New range: 3-7

Preds lose in OT
Again, 2nd becomes impossible

If Calgary wins, then 7th place also becomes impossible.

New range: 3-7 or 3-6

Preds lose in regulation
One additional spot becomes impossible for each of the following outcomes:
Calgary picks up a point (or two)
Carolina wins (it is their last home game...)
New range: 2-7 or 2-6 or 2-5

The other key game is TBL. A point or two from them would be huge.

Preds range is still 2-7 inclusive.

Friday's big games:
Our worst possible outcome improves by one spot for each of:
1. Oilers win (@ Wild)
2. Flames get a point (@Chicago)

Unfortunately, 2nd becomes impossible unless the Avs win (@Yotes)

If the Preds lose in regulation on Saturday, we end up 4th or better, with an 85% chance of picking top 3.

if carolina had held on and got 2 last night there would have been no way we would have fallen below them, even with a win.

and as crappy as this season has been I wish it was one week longer... I think if there were about three more games Minnesota might fall out of the playoffs..

Jackets fans everywhere are hoping that that's still a possibility.

Oh happy day! Oil are SMOKING the Wild 5-0 in the second.

Preds should raffle off for charity the right to play goalie against CBJ tomorrow. I would gladly put a paycheck in for a worthy cause.

I feel like the hockey gods are trying to either make amends to us for the injuries or make amends to CBJ for us starting Mason against the Wings.

LOL Wild. Fantastic night where Oilers get points and push the Wild to the brink of missing the playoffs.

This MIN/EDM score is making me perhaps a little bit too gleeful...


If all they have to do to clinch is beat one of Edmonton or Colorado and can't do it, that'll have to go down as one of the most epic late-season choke jobs of all time!

Gah I would laugh so hard...


Never thought I would be such a big Wings/Columbus/Avalanche fan in my life!

I watched as much as I possibly could of the Wild game. The Wild basically dominated zone time but the Oilers would clear it, get a few seconds of zone time, fire a bad angle shot and get a goal. Fans were booing early and often.
