If the playoffs started today the Hawks would play the Minnesota Wild.
Last Night’s Action
Edmonton Oilers-6 Minnesota Wild-1 Not sure how this happens when the Wild only needed a win on home ice and they clinch a playoff spot and they come out and lose 6-1 against a team that had only won one game in the last 11 games.
The Race for the 8th seed
7. Detroit Red Wings-54 points with 1 game remaining
8. Minnesota Wild-53 points with one game remaining
Outside Looking In
-Columbus Blue Jackets-53 points with 1 game remaining
Today’s schedule for the final day of the season in the Western Conference
Nashville Predators at Columbus Blue Jackets- The cannon will be loud but would it be something if the Predators start Pekka Rinne after resting him against Detroit?
Minnesota Wild at Colorado Avalache- Not sure where the Wild will find the motivation to win after getting destroyed on home ice Friday night.
Detroit Red Wings at Dallas Stars- The Stars are out and they have a chance at having the Red Wings join them watching the playoffs.
