Predators scoreboard watch: Western rankings up for grabs

The Preds aren't back in action until tomorrow, but there are plenty of games on tonight's schedule that can impact the Western Conference playoff positions:

Chicago @ Dallas: The Blackhawks still have a shot at the top spot in the West, which would pretty much rule out a matchup with the Preds in the first round.

San Jose @ Calgary: For the Sharks, this will serve as a practice for "eliminating an opponent who is on the ropes". The Flames have only a glimmer of hope to capture the #8 spot, but at least they have a winning record (6-4) in their last 10.

Colorado @ Vancouver: The Avs, however, are really stumbling down the stretch, going 3-6-1 lately. Vancouver has nothing to play for here, so expect Alex Burrows to work on his flopping.

Los Angeles @ Anaheim: The Kings currently sit in 7th, 3 points back of Nashville with two games in hand, and one point behind Detroit with one game in hand over the Red Wings. Goooooooo Ducks!

Feel free to follow the action and discuss in the comments below...
