As long as CBJ/NSH ends in regulation, I'm happy.

I hate to get too far ahead of ourselves but if we win tonight we are only 3 points back of Vancouver for the division lead too...

I would rather we win to get in, rather than have another team fail for us to make it. It doesn't matter how in the end, but god was it (and still is) annoying to hear people attribute us getting in during 2006 to Vancouver losing it their last few games.

STL-CHI OT

But if we can't win this game, no matter, I guess.

I'm watching this shootout in Russian and it's nerve-racking and hilarious.

St Louis wins. ****. At least it's a SO victory, so they don't gain ground in ROW.

Well, as long as Detroit loses with us that'll be fine. That's probably the team we need to catch anyways.

Detroit lost, and Minnesota down 3-0 right now. We still have a chance to catch both of these teams.. Must wins against Minnesota at this point.

If they didn't want to have to win a game against a nearly mistake free Canucks this late in the season, they should have won more games earlier. But as it stands losing tonight was a huge set back... when we say no room for error, we mean no room for error.

1 more loss and this thread is dead.

COL 

San Jose is pretty much uncatchable now.

Oilers current odds: 27.4% (as of Apr 4) according to Sports Club Stats. Please note that this calculation is simulation based, not mathematically based.
Still hanging on. Basically 1 playoff spot available between Detroit, Edmonton, Columbus, and Phoenix with San Jose, L.A., and St. Louis really pulling away, Dallas and Nashville perhaps too far back.

7-3-1 gets them 54 points which should be good. So i don't see how 1 more loss kills this thread...

Why does this board live and die by the Oilers last game? Oilers win and everyone is happy, then they lose and the sky falls....

4 more road game: have to go 2-2 at minimum...1 win or 2 points in California and beat COL...everything else is gravy

7 more home games: have to go 5-2 at minimum...very difficult games: 2 against ANA, 1 against CHI, 1 against MIN, 1 against VAN...

must beat PHX and CAL...no excuses

then go 3-2 against ANA x 2, CHI, VAN, MIN

wow that's tough

I like our chances of catching Minny more than our chances of catching Detroit. Simply due to the fact that we play Minnesota twice, so we at least control our own destiny more against them.

Our chances are slim though, to say the least.

I think Detroit are pretenders anyway, I could see them taking a fall.

I'm done thinking about the Blues. It is Detroit or nothing now. Oh that loss to them hurts now....

Another big win streak and we can start to think about the Blues.

If Detroit wins today I'm throwing in the towel. I find it hilarious that people have faith in this team to go at least 7-3-1 in the last 11 games of the season.
