I'm hoping St. Louis isn't trying to win the Presidents' Trophy so they'll just go easy on us.

In my prediction SJ gets max. 2 points (other LA game) and Dallas gets 4 points (SJ and STL). That is enough for Stars playoff spot

Yes I am. In contrast to our captain I'm mad at the Stars players.
Of course I'll be cheering for them in last three games but somehow its hard for me to believe in the ultimate success

It's better to expect to lose and be happy if we make it in than expect to make it in and be pissed if we miss.

I'd make one minor change to that,

I've been optimistic all season, and there's nothing I'd like more than a round of playoff hockey.

That said, it's better to not get slapped in the face again like they did to the fans on Saturday night with a pathetic effort.

If Dallas beats SJ ... a terrible road team since November which I've previously pointed out ... I'll feel good about their chance to make the post season.

However, that SJ game was a travesty, and I'm in wait and see mode rather than let's get the pom-poms going for a team that can play like they did in Game 79 of the season.

It'll be the final home game of the season for the Stars, against Blues who are on the 2nd night of a b2b. I can totally see Stars winning it. But it all doesn't matter. GOT to beat SJ now and a lot has to improve in order to do that (finally was able to watch the past game against them in full).
This team has surprised us so many times, in a positive and negative way. As I can see most of the fans have already given up hope. So let's wait and see...

This is exactly how I feel.

I honestly thought this team could do what last year's couldn't. That they had learned from previous mistakes and could finally get in, even for just four games (hopefully at least 6).

Game 79 was just a kick to the stomach. 78 was as well but at least the effort was there.

Obviously they could still make it. But it starts or ends tomorrow night. And I'm not getting my hopes up before tomorrow's game ends.

Just as I thought Kings win 93 points. In my predictions for the upcoming tie with sharks, LA will get at least two points and win the division. Sharks win with us today and will get another 2 points in the tie with the LA ending the season in eighth place. Coyotes will get 3-4 points in the next three matches and finish the season in seventh place in the conference.

In my dreams ... Stars win the last three matches

I think every fan expected LA to drop EDM, and I don't think that win puts LA in the driver seat for the Pacific. PHX controls their own destiny just as much as LA at this point.

PHX still has 2 very winnable games against CLB and MIN, and now Hitchcock has confirmed STL is resting players the next 3 games (great news for Dallas as well).

Every team in the Pacific race is capable of blowing games they should have won, but PHX could easily pickup points in every remaining game with at least 2 wins, IMO.

The popular theory on here is that LA and SJ split the final 2. As long as LA doesn't earn a loser point in one of those games, PHX could likely win on total points.

In the even of a tie LA has the head to head tiebreaker locked up. However, the first tiebreaker is ROW, and either team could take that right now. LA is at 34 with 2 games left, and PHX is at 33 with 3 games left.

95 points (in 81 games) probably would've seen us at the top of the division this year.

This has probably been covered somewhere, but if not:

Tragic Number
LA & PHX: 1
SJ: 2

The only thing Dallas is officially eliminated from is the division since SJ and LA play each other twice and at the very least one of those teams is getting wins.

If you're looking for someone to get behind in the division race, let me suggest SJ and/or PHX. Dallas has LA's 2nd round pick, and LA winning the division will result in the pick being in the mid to late 50's rather than the mid to late 40's.

Hoping for extremes, basically.

Phoenix wins out for the division, L.A. takes 3 of 4 points, Dallas takes 4/4.
Dallas gets playoffs and their non-division winning pick.


OR...

Dallas and L.A. both lose out, so Dallas gets pick #11, #41, and #46 in the first 2 rounds of the draft.
