    I predict the Rangers once again will stumble at the finish-line and miss the playoffs, and Chicago will beat Detroit for the final spot in the Western conference.

    Best case scenario:
    CHI loss today and DAL win.

    Good case scenario:
    CHI win and anything else.

    Worst case scenario:
    CHI loss and DAL loss.

    Van vs. Dallas would be over in five
    Van vs. LA would be over in six
    Van vs. Chicago is ???

    Yeah, the east is set. All we are waiting for is Dallas' game to figure out just how the west will turn out.

    Interesting note time: looking purely at win-loss ratio (excluding overtime losses points) against one another, there isn't a single match-up these playoffs where the top seed actually has more wins than losses against the bottom seed in the regular season - Nashville, Montreal and New York (bottom seeds) actually posted a winning season against their opposite top seeds (3-1 v Anaheim, 4-2 v Boston and 3-1 v Washington), while everyone else split the season 2 win 2 loss or 3 win 3 loss against their post-season match-up.

    (If you calculate it with season points against each other instead (so OTL are good for one point) you have three top seeds - Vancouver, San Jose and Philadelphia - who break the tie in their favor)
