Oh sweet playoffs, how you give my grey hairs and have me start worrying about if my team will be golfing before Easter Sunday.
The potential for Colorado and Dallas to make the playoffs over San Jose is present. San Jose plays Dallas on Tuesday in Dallas, should the Sharks lose, they drop back down to 9th place and out of the playoffs with two games remaining.
Let me break this down for you simply put.
In order for the San Jose Sharks to make the playoffs, Dallas has to lose their last three games and Colorado has to lose their last two. And that’s just to keep the Sharks in 8th place. If they want to be in 7th or even 3rd, then Phoenix and LA would have to lose their remaining games. LA plays against the Oilers on Monday and then their last two games against the Sharks on Thursday and Saturday. While Phoenix plays Columbus, St. Louis and Minnesota.
After their 3-0 win over Dallas on Saturday night, the Sharks will hope to capitalize on that momentum and take another two points from the Stars on Tuesday night in Texas.
In true Western Conference, Pacific Division fashion, it’s all going to come down to the last game of the season. The possibilities are endless on who will end up where. Too many to count, write out and sort though. No matter how you slice it or dice it, the San Jose Sharks are in the thick of a serious playoff push.
