Huge win last night, the Fat Lady may be looking at the salad bar, but her mind is still on the desert table.

Remaining Schedule:

Minnesota: (85 - 7 pts ahead)
HOME: PIT, BOS, STL, NAS
AWAY: STL, PHO, LA, CHI, WIN

Phoenix: (82 - 4 pts ahead)
HOME: MIN, WIN, EDM, SJ, DAL
AWAY: NJ, LA, CBJ, NAS

Dallas: (79 - 1 pt ahead)
HOME: NAS, NAS, CBJ, STL
AWAY: STL, WAS, CAR, TB, FLA, PHO

Vancouver: (78 - GO CANUCKS GO)
HOME: ANA, NYR, LA, ANA, COL, CAL
AWAY: COL, EDM

Minny lost a big one last night, instead of being 11 points clear of the Canucks, they find themselves 7 point up
with a arguably the toughest schedule of the 4 teams to close out the year.

Wow Minnesota's remaining schedule is bad. Hopefully Kuemper and Bryzy continue sucking.

There is hope yet!

The real challenge will be beating Anaheim and LA 2 or even 3 times out of 3. Yikes.

Doc, just to be clear, the fat lady is not Kate Smith.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Canucks:
Current: 79 points
Points Available: 14
Max Possible 93

Number of points required to reach 94 / Total points available

LA: 2 / 16 (.277)

Canucks need to finish ahead of 2 of these teams to make the post season
MIN: 9 / 16 (.563)
PHO: 10 / 16 (.625)
DAL: 14 / 20 (.700)


If the Canucks play .714 the rest of the way (10/14 points):
Max Possible: 89

To Reach 90
MIN: 5/16 (.250)
PHO: 6/16 (.500)
DAL: 11/20 (.600)

Remaining Schedules

Minnesota: (85 - 6 pts ahead)
HOME: PIT, BOS, STL, NAS
AWAY: PHO, LA, CHI, WIN

Phoenix: (82 - 5 pts ahead)
HOME: MIN, WIN, EDM, SJ, DAL
AWAY: LA, CBJ, NAS

Dallas: (79 - 0 pts ahead, hold the tie breaker)
HOME: NAS, NAS, CBJ, STL
AWAY: STL, WAS, CAR, TB, FLA, PHO

Vancouver: (79 - GO CANUCKS GO)
HOME: ANA, NYR, LA, ANA, COL, CAL
AWAY: EDM

Minnesota still has the toughest schedule, next is a toss up between Dallas and Vancouver.

Tonight's Games:
DAL vs NSH - Go Preds!

Saturday:
DAL at STL - Go Blues!
MIN at PHO - Ouch - Canucks be chasing the loser of this game, just let it end in regulation
ANA at VAN - Yet another must win

Sunday:
Nothing of importance

yeah, it was overdone to begin with because doctors are terrible cooks!

Geologists however, are great chefs!

Add to that every point we lose lessens the number of points the other teams need to clinch by and equal number. My hope is that it is over soon. Wanna see Jacob get some games and some of the kids in Utica get some ice.
The only HW the Canucks need
