If two or more clubs are tied in points during the regular season, the standing of the clubs is determined in the following order:
1. The fewer number of games played (i.e., superior points percentage).
2. The greater number of games won, excluding games won in the Shootout. This figure is reflected in the ROW column.
3. The greater number of points earned in games between the tied clubs. If two clubs are tied, and have not played an equal number of home games against each other, points earned in the first game played in the city that had the extra game shall not be included. If more than two clubs are tied, the higher percentage of available points earned in games among those clubs, and not including any "odd" games, shall be used to determine the standing.
4. The greater differential between goals for and against for the entire regular season.
NOTE: In standings a victory in a shootout counts as one goal for, while a shootout loss counts as one goal against.

Wouldn't the ROW (Regular and OT wins) be the tie breaker before 'head to head'?
Canes have 34 ROWs to our 30.
Thanks Cornuck/Betamax. Glad to see I'm wrong.
Honestly, tonight will be the first game in about a month where I will be cheering for a victory. It's been rather odd of late, since I've been compelled to watch the Canuck games yet hoping for a loss.
I'm really pleased about the 6th draft pick. It's at least one consolation for a pretty 'messed up' season.

Has anyone heard from Tantalum ? Last I heard, he was having some health challenges.
So this is what we know ..... Tantalum left here on Dec 7 2013 where he was pausered by a piss posse and ran into Jack Tripper . He had a small prick shaped like a Vervitcus which punctured Tantalums bladder . Dr Wilch removed the small prick and then bleached his bladder clean . However he is still leaking like a sieve and is currently unable to return here until he gets patched up .
