Notes On Today’s Games

from John Kreiser of NHL.com.

The Wild, Detroit Red Wings and Columbus Blue Jackets will decide the final two playoff spots in the Western Conference on Saturday.

The Red Wings clinch a playoff berth as long as they earn at least one point against the Dallas Stars. They can also get in without picking up any points as long as the Wild lose in regulation or the Blue Jackets lose in any fashion.

The Wild clinch a playoff berth if they defeat the Colorado Avalanche in any fashion. They also get in as long as the Blue Jackets don't pick up more points than they do.

The Blue Jackets clinch a playoff berth if they defeat the Nashville Predators in any fashion and either the Red Wings lose in regulation or the Wild lose in any fashion. The Blue Jackets also get in if they earn a point against the Predators and the Wild lose in regulation.
