Kings IN THE PLAYOFFS! (Seeding Status Update Thread)

Here's what is known as of tonight (4/8):

If the Kings earn 2-3 points in their final game, they can finish no lower than 6th. No higher than 4th.
If the Kings earn 0-1 points in their final game, they can finish no higher than 7th due to the fact that Anaheim would have 2 more points in that case.

Nashville. Games remaining: 1. Maximum points: 101.
Phoenix. Games remaining: 1. Maximum points: 101.
Kings games remaining: 1. Maximum points: 100
Chicago. Games remaining: 1. Maximum Points: 99
Anaheim. Games remaining: 1. Maximum points: 99.

Hmmm.. this is kinda like playing bingo except there isn't a cool machine that picks numbers and no cards to fill out with those cool highlighter pens. Actually, it is just more math.

Can't argue with 9-6-1.

All of our remaining are against conference opponents. If we can't go 9-6-1, then we don't deserve it.

The Kings are 14-11-4 since the new year. That would be an 8-6-2 record. This race will be very close up till the final weekend.

Agreed.

What's even worse to think about, however, is that if you take the 12-3 opening stretch off the record, the Kings are essentially a .500 team.

That's why you can't do that, because they aren't a .500 team Every team in the west playoff hunt has one thing in common - a hell of a run at some point in the season. The Kings have had 3 significant runs during the season - and two significant drop-offs... so far, they are avoiding a 3rd, which is a great sign.

14 games over .500 is pretty much the magic # of games to be a playoff team. The Kings have been bumping up at 12 for the last two weeks. They've got to get to 14 games over .500 and stay there to be in the playoffs.

This graph: http://www.sportsclubstats.com/NHL/W...sAbove500.html paints a really interesting picture. There are patterns. A major run up, a major run down, a run up around day 60, some sputtering, and then another run up to day 80. Then, a huge run down followed by a huge run up... and now we're sputtering again (vs. a huge run down, which shouldn't be overlooked). The Kings could be poised for another short run up... at the perfect time.

Or they could crap the bed. I love this time of year!

It's really all so simple ... you just have to divide the number by the sin, add the inverse of the multiple, and then multiple that by pie ... and hmmm Pie .... yummmmm .... I like Pie

That is sweet! I need a calculator with a "tan" button. Lord knows I need one and it would be just a button push away. Throw on some "abs" and a "mod" button while you're at it. I'll whip these guys around here into shape in no time. I definitely don't need a "sin" button, though.

Not that it gives as all that much information but in the last 16 games the Kings have gone:

8-4-4

20 pts out of 32 but if we do it we're in the playoffs....

Just insane how close it is this year.

Not to mention the last time the Kings lost two in a row in regulation was nearly 2 months ago, yet here they are fighting for 8th. I'm all for parity, but this is ridiculous.

It beats talking about the draft though

Where were we at this time last year? Does anyone remember? All I know is that we had a huge game VS Colorado around this time last year and Doughty scored a big goal in OT to give us the W

Last year we were at 85 points after playing game 67.

Last year's thread:

http://hfboards.com/showthread.php?t=729058

We're playing game 67 tonight.

From last season:

Quote:

Game 67 playoff tracker:

Updated: 12 points is the Kings target points #. They need to earn 12 points in the next 15 games (6-9-0) to guarantee them 97 points and a playoff spot.

Los Angeles Kings Playoff Chances
Beat Dallas 2-1, playoff odds up 0.2 to 99.8%
85 points 40-22-5

Los Angeles Kings Playoff Chances - Sports Club Stats

The most likely final remaining game finish? 8-5-2, a .625% - good for 103 points.
http://hfboards.com/showpost.php?p=2...&postcount=125

We wound up finishing with 101 points. 91 points was good enough for a playoff spot last season.

Keep in mind there is significantly more parity in the west this year vs. last, so the point totals will skew downward accordingly.

Just as long as this whole mess doesn't come down to the last game against the sucks. I'm going to that game and I don't think my heart could take it.
