I didn't see a thread about this and thought it could be useful to talk about the daily playoff picture. I see some of the talk about it in random threads but thought its own thread would be nice. Anything directly affecting the Oilers positioning in the Wild Card/Division standings. Mods if there is already a thread like this or you don't think it's necessary/too early, feel free to remove it. Last night was a pretty good night for the Oilers. The Wild, Stars, Ducks and Sharks all lost in regulation. Oilers are still hanging on to the last wild-card spot and are 4 points back of 3rd in the division. Vancouver is one point behind the wild card spot but the Oilers have 3 games in hand on them. 2 games in hand on Vegas and the Ducks. Considering the Oil have lost 2 in a row they are still sitting ok. This is a nice change to be scoreboard watching late in December where the Oilers are actually in the hunt.
