Here's the playoff races that will be interesting in the last month of the regular season:

4th Seed in the Western Conference

4 point game: March 17, Vancouver @ Dallas

President's Trophy
Dallas Stars vs. Ottawa Senators
Senators: 98 points, 45-18-7-1 with 11 games left

The playoffs are essentially like this:

Senators [1] vs. Bruins or Islanders [8]
Atlantic 1st place [2] vs. Bruins or Southeast 2nd place or Islanders [7]
Southeast 1st place [3] vs. Southeast 2nd place or Bruins [6]
Atlantic 2nd place [4/5] vs. Leafs [4/5]

Stars or Northwest 1st place or Central 1st place [1] vs. Oilers [8]
Stars or Northwest 1st place or Central 1st place [2] vs. Ducks or Wild [7]
Stars or Northwest 1st place or Central 1st place [3] vs. Wild or Ducks [6]
Northwest 2nd place [4/5] vs. Central 2nd place [4/5]

Simple, eh?

The Chase Is On:
8th: Oilers [29-23-8-8] 74pts; 14 games left
14th: Flames [23-31-10-4] 60pts; 14 games left
Flames must win 7 more games than the Oilers do to make playoffs
Any combination of 7 Oilers wins or Flames losses eliminates them from the playoffs

I COMPLETELY disagree. I think the best-of-seven format for all of the rounds works best in hockey. (Maybe because of fond Adams Divison playoff series between my then-beloved Bruins and the hated Canadiens, Sabres, Nordiques, and Whalers.)
