Daily Scoreboard Watch

Quote from Dave Lozo, NHL.com writer, last night on Twitter:

If Anaheim closes 5-4 and CHI, LA and NSH play .500 hockey the rest of the way, the Flames can't pass them even if they finish 6-0.    

The Wild are currently 7 points behind the Flames.

Current Wild Position

11th place, 78 points, 7 points behind eighth place Anaheim Ducks.
Just one point ahead of Columbus Blue Jackets for 12th

Current Draft Position

11th overall. 8 points from a top five pick.

Games Remaining

8, for a total of 16 points available.

Tragic Number

7

More fun... after the jump.
