Updated Playoff Chart
By: Jeff Little • March 25th, 2009
Newest version of the playoff chart can be found here.
Jackets end up picking up a point on Edmonton, who gave up two late goals to Detroit, while their margin over 8th remained the same. With Anaheim winning, the margin over 9th reduced by one.
Dallas and Minnesota are now in desperate situations. St. Louis is looking strong now, but they have 2 home games left this week, against Vancouver and then the CBJ. Starting Sunday in Nationwide, the Blues play 6 of the last 7 on the road.
A native of the SF Bay Area, my first exposure to hockey was the SF/Oakland/California Golden Seals, including Charlie Finley and the white skates. Fast forward to the late 1980's when Gretzky and the Kings came up to the Bay Area for an exhibition game at the Oakland Coliseum Arena, for which we had glass seats. I was at the first San Jose Sharks game in the Cow Palace, and followed them for their first few pathetic years, before moving to Columbus in 1994. I attended the first pro-NHL rally downtown, and have been a season ticket holder since Day 1, wife & I are active in the Jacket Backers, and son is an avid fan as well. I cover the Jackets for Inside Hockey, and contribute regularly to a variety of hockey sites. I maintain contact with the Jackets organization, and like to dig into stories, bringing a fresh, and sometimes irreverent perspective to hockey.
