March of the West: Day 3

The third day of the Kings’ winter hibernation was fairly kind to them, I think. Here’s what happened yesterday…

Chicago 3, Detroit 0: WIN. The Blackhawks are still ahead of the Kings (and everyone else in the conference), but the Red Wings now remain six points behind the Kings, with only one game in hand.

St. Louis 3, Vancouver 1: WIN. The Blues still have three games in hand over the Kings, but they’re also 10 points behind the Kings. I’m of the mind that you want to keep a team behind you as long as possible. This loss keeps the Canucks seven points behind the Kings, with only one game in hand.

Today’s games, with the better Kings result in bold: Colorado at Minnesota, San Jose at Dallas, St. Louis at Edmonton, Columbus at Phoenix.
