As of right now the Blues have a chance to be in the 8th spot come late Tuesday night.
Need the Ducks to lose.
Need the Preds to lose
Need to win. Need the Wild to lose
Need the Ducks to beat the Sexual Predators. If the Ducks win tonight this game makes it impossible for us to keep the 8th spot.
The NHL is ridiculously close. I know some people don't like the point structure with OT losses and what not but it has definitely made regular season games meaningful. Any of these teams on the cusp of getting can probably look back to a few games maybe they gave away and you know they desperately wish they had those points now. I know the Blues do.
