One game left – LA Kings 2013 Playoff Scenarios

Per Kings stats and PR guru Jeremy Zager…

There are a bunch of different scenarios for the Kings, Sharks and Blues for Saturday.
 
Note: the Kings own the tie-breaker over both St. Louis and San Jose
St. Louis owns the tie-breaker over San Jose
San Jose loses all tie-breakers
 
Readers Digest Version:
-If Blues win they clinch 4th (and then winner of LAK-SJ takes 5th)
-The Kings can get 4th the following way:
                Win (in any fashion) over San Jose AND St. Louis loss (in any fashion)
-If Kings lose in OT/SO the best they can finish is 5th (with a STL regulation loss)
-If Kings lose in regulation they will finish 6th
-The only way the Sharks can finish 4th is with a win (in any fashion) and STL regulation loss

  1. I think my brain just imploded.

  2. That hurt my brain….but the upside is that there are plenty of ways to still get home ice. Final answer.

  3. I’m not sure which is worse Blues or ‘Nucks.. both will be looking to exact some revenge for last year. Kings will still beat either team! GKG

    • I would much rather face St. Louis than Vancouver or SJ. SJ is a very tough matchup for us, esp in their building. And Vancouver is too good a team to go out in 4-5 games again, it will be a much much more competitive series.
