Anyone else watching the Oilers game? Wow. One of the best 2-1 games you'll ever see. Flames just nearly scored but it hit the post and then they had the rebounds blocked. The friggin goal judge thought it was in and the horn went off too. Oilers could still miss the playoffs but what a fight they put up going down. Kudos to them. It's not as if Calgary is ok with a loss here since they're jockeying for a more favourable playoff spot (6th since 5th means Anaheim, 7th means San Jose and 8th means Detroit).
Yeah having both Nashville and Vancouver lose 2 games the rest of the way is not good. They'll have a tiebreaker for wins, but these games need to be outright regulation losses. I'd say Vancouver is the real story because even with 4 wins to end the year, the Preds beat them out by virtue of wins if they also run the table. The Nucks will do some house-cleaning if they just barely miss it while Edmonton will be doing backflips over how well they finished.
