Since the Ducks have clinched a postseason birth, we're good to go with this thread.

 

One game remaining against LAK on the last day of the season, and it's meaningful... above and beyond just beating the Queens.

 

We get one point out of the game, and we clinch the division. That means we could face CGY, NSH, or a slight chance of STL, but would not face SJS.

 

If we lose in regulation, and EDM wins both their remaining games, then SJS comes into the picture as our most probable opponent.

 

I think out of those four possible opponents, CGY would be preferable.

 

Getting a point or better out of this last game would put CGY as our most probable opponent.

Or the Oil could lose one of the two games... doubt it, but it could happen. They could lose both.

At least we control our destiny; so long as we gat a point against LAK, we finish first and get home ice for at least 2 rounds.

LA's gunna play a dirty game though. I don't know how many of our top players we want to play against a goon squad with nothing to gain but blood.

It would obviously be preferred to have EDM lose today (even if it's in OT or a SO) so that the Ducks can rest players Sunday that can use the break.

The passive path to the division title/home ice.

 

Whatever it takes.

Sidenote:

 

Quick in goal for LAK today, so we'll likely get Bishop tomorrow.

NSH, with their loss tonight in regulation, is no longer a possible 1st round match-up with the Ducks. NSH has locked up the no. 2 WC spot and will face CHI.

It's now down to facing either CGY (most likely) if we win the Pacific or SJS (less likely) if we don't.

I'm glad we won't face NSH in the first round. Tired of that heartburn.

Yeah - much prefer the ulcer of Chicago in the third!  ;)

Just making it to the third round would be enough relief for me.

The 'Nucks are giving it their all. Nice to see.

 

I hope they don't can Willie Desjardins. Upper management is responsible for the problems there, not coaching.

If we need the point (and it seems we will), they'll play.

EDM won 3-2.

Looks like the Ducks are going to have win the Pacific the old fashion Smith Barney way and "earn it".

Tomahawk cruise missiles are expensive, too. 

 

Stock up now. They're going fast!

I hope we win the division. But still it would be cool to see an Anaheim vs San José and an Edmonton vs Calgary first round matchup. But no, I rather have us win the division.
