Wouldn't the ROW (Regular and OT wins) be the tie breaker before 'head to head'?

Canes have 34 ROWs to our 30.

You are correct:

re: http://sports.espn.go.com/nhl/news/stor ... iebreakers

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.


H2H is the third tie-breaker.

Go Canucks. Fuck up them Flames.

Speaking of which. Go Sabres. Beat the NYI to prevent Calgary from getting the 4th pick.

Edit

All Buffalo had to do was hang on to win in OT. Now they have given the Flames a reason to lose!

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.

Not to be a ya butter, but, with the NYI winning, if we win they Calgary drops to 4th but if we lose, Calgary stays at 5th.

The Trotz just ran out of Nashville. However, he's been offered a new position within the organization.

I wonder if he's only capable of coaching Nashville Predators hockey. I'm sure he'll draw interest from a number of teams.

So Colin Campbell back to the league office?

Shanahan is a media whore.

No surprise he goes to TO.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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