March 19 magic numbers

Here’s the updated numbers. No movement where the Kings need there to be movement, in the 7-8-9 spots. It’s been pointed out that the Kings’ fortunes have gone south a bit since these numbers were published. I pointed out that John Torchetti was in the building last night, as a Chicago assistant coach…thus the 2006 feel. Tonight, in West games, it’s Minnesota at Columbus, San Jose at Calgary, Detroit at Edmonton and the Islanders at Anaheim.
