Was Preds’ win against Dallas Stars good enough for NHL playoffs? - tennessean.com

It certainly didn’t hurt. Still bogus that a team like the Stars can be so low beneath .500 and still be in a playoff race. Use three points for a regulation win already. Or hell, just bring ties back instead of deciding a game via a ruleset not utilized in the previous 60 minutes.
