    It’s looking increasingly likely that they’ll have to win out to win the division, AND match Phoenix’s ROW total in order to preserve the tiebreaker edge. Phoenix is just set up too nicely with teams that either are out of it or don’t care anymore.  That Minnesota blown point took away the Kings’ margin of error.

    So while I’m confident they’ll make it in now… I think, realistically, that it’s looking like starting on the road against Vancouver or STL since I’ll be happy with one win over the Sharks, let alone two.

    Oh, and Calgary’s officially eliminated, per the NHL’s wrapup.

      I hate to say it, but I wonder if the difference between that oh-so-tantalizing #3 seed and a low seed will be Jeff Carter’s ankle. I think going 2-1 over these last three is plenty realistic even without him, but I wouldn’t count on Richardson to pick up the slack over the course of an entire week or so.

      Latest from Hammond is that it’s a bone bruise, no fracture, but it still hurts. :/

      CLB & MN have been playing well lately and AT StL can’t be considered a “nice set up” - they’re fighting for 1st and NEVER concede goals EVER.

    We hold our fate in our hands. Lets hope this team doesn’t suddenly develop a case of butterfingers.

    It’s good news that the Kings can control their destiny, considering where they were a few weeks ago. Win out and make the playoffs, no matter what happens. I think what happens this week will tell us if the current core has turned the corner toward becoming a great team.

    • Doughty99

      Agree, Rich. 

      But it’s win out and win the division, is it not?
