Here are the latest standings from nhl.com. As usual Sharks in first, Red Wings is second. Sharks in first, Red Wings is second. Sharks in first, Red Wings is second. Sorry, I just love saying that. The Penguins seem to be experiencing some sort of Eastern Conference Title hangover, or maybe it's a different kind of hangover, you know, the type you get when your captain gets into a fight that makes him and his team look desperate and stupid.
Anyways, is seems as though the Stars have finally hit their "stride", or whatever you want to call it, because they are only a win away from pulling into a tie with the 8th seeded Wild. But to those of you thinking "Oh @#$%, they might actually make the playoffs," here's something to cheer you up. They play the Red Wings 3 times this month.
Wait a second, doesn't that mean the Red Wings get 3 easy wins? I'm confused. Who do I root for? It sucks if either of them win.
