Kings Beat Hawks – Points-Blown update

  • The Kings are done with the Hawks this (regular) season.
  • The Hawks won 2 and the Kings won 1. Which of course means, the season series goes to:
  • …no-one. It’s tied. Because the first game in Chicago didn’t count toward the tie-breaker.
  • The Points-Blown standings have been updated. The Kings are four official points ahead of 8th place San Jose, but only 2 points-blown.
  • The Hawks are first in ROWs in the West, with 20. The Kings and Ducks are 2nd, with 17.
  • The Kings are first in the West in regulation wins, with 17. They have not won in OT this season.
  • In the Kings’ 32 games so far, 29 were decided in regulation (that’s the most in the West) and 3 were decided in OT or SO (that’s fewest in the West).
  • The Kings are third in the West in goal-differential. That’s good, because after ROWs and head-to-head, that’s the tie-breaker.
  • And it’s pretty likely there will be a tie or two among the teams currently sitting 3rd to 12th.
  • In undecided season-series, the Kings are currently ahead in five, behind in three, and tied in three.
  • Only three series have been decided. The Kings beat CGY, and tied CHI and NAS.
  • Of the Kings 18 remaining games, half of them are against four teams: DAL (3), MIN, ANA and SJS (2 each).
  • The Kings play COL, STL, EDM, DET, VAN, CBJ and PHX once each.

    There are 3 games left against Minnesota. This Saturday and again on April 23 in Minnesota and a home game against them next Thursday.

      Thank you, yes, you’re right. I was fooled by my own points-blown standings, which only indicates the season-series games that actually count in the season series. (The first game against Minnesota doesn’t count in the SS, so I forgot about it.)

        That makes sense in a strange way. I only noticed because I have been thinking it very strange the Kings haven’t played them yet and then when I saw that it made me wonder if you could only play a team twice in this shortened season and as I ran through in my mind that the Kings were playing everyone else 3 (or more) times I had to go check the schedule. I certainly don’t mean to be the dick who goes around correcting people!

          No, please, I appreciate all corrections. And the schedule is weird enough as it is. The Kings do play everyone either 3, 4 or 5 times. In the case of the 3 or 5 groups, one of the games doesn’t figure in.
