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.
