NHL . playoff watch rankings update

Whenever the Dallas Stars and Minnesota Wild go head to head, it’s a reminder of when the North Stars moved from Minnesota to Texas, and all the anger over that decision over the years goes to the residents of the State of Hockey. . Fun fact: That franchise has now played more games regularly as the Dallas Stars than the Minnesota North Stars.

In other words, there was some additional heat to the internal clash between the two clubs on Thursday night (8 p.m. ET on ESPN). And rightly so, both teams are also aiming for the Stanley Cup 2022 knockout round.

For Wild, the battle continued for the home advantage in a #2 vs. #3 match against St. Louis Blues. Currently, both clubs have 96 points, and Wild has a game in hand; however, they need to stay ahead because St. Louis has a significant lead in regulatory wins (39 to 33).

As for the Stars, they entered Thursday night’s game as the West’s second wild, three points ahead of the Vegas Golden Knights (with one hand) and one point behind the Nashville Predators for first wild card position. One would imagine that getting that first wild card carries extra weight because it means a match against the Calgary Flames and not the Colorado Avalanche on the first round; However, the Stars won the series against Avs, two games at a time, so they probably won’t mind playing David against this year’s version of Goliath.

As we enter the final stages of the 2021-22 regular season, it’s time to check out all the playoff races – along with the teams jockeying for a spot in the 2022 NHL draft lottery.

Race for 1st place

A note on conditionally traded options affecting the top 16:

  • Columbus will receive a pick in Chicago’s first round if Chicago fails to win either draw in the 2022 draft lottery. Otherwise, the selection moves to 2023.

  • Buffalo will get Vegas’s first pick if it falls outside the top 10 picks. Otherwise, choose to move to 2023.
