Playoff race: April 24

The Dallas Stars’ playoff chances took a huge hit with Tuesday’s loss in San Jose. The last thing they needed was to get no points out that game and that’s what they did.

They are three points behind No. 8 Columbus and both teams have two games left. They trail No. 9 Detroit by two points and the Red Wings still have a game in hand.

There are still a lot of scenarios that can happen out there because of the NHL’s points-based system and the number of games that could affect the outcome, but let’s look at the race in in somewhat simple form today, see what Detroit does tonight and go into more detail later.

If the Stars win their final two games against Columbus and Detroit they will max out at 52 points.

If that happens, they have to hope Columbus collects one point or fewer in its final two games. If the Blue Jackets, who currently have 51 points, earn one point and end up with 52 the Stars would win the first tiebreaker, which is regulation/overtime wins.

As for the Red Wings, the Stars would have to hope that the Red Wings get two points or fewer in their final three games. The Red Wings currently have 50 points and a maximum of two with give them 52 and the Stars should take the tiebreaker.
