Western Conference playoff race, 17 October edition
Hello, Colorado! They've played 8 games already (compared to Columbus' 6), but their 13 points is nothing to sneeze at. I think no one saw it coming. Maybe 2 or 3 people saw Phoenix at 10 points after 7 games. But who forecast Anaheim, Vancouver and Detroit ALL below the playoff qualifier line of 9 points?
Minnesota is in transition and now is suffering from injuries. Nashville apparently is just bad.
And the Blue Jackets sit comfy and cozy in 5th seed with their 10 points, the only Western Conference team to be above the qualifier line with less than 7 games under their belt. Let's Go Jackets!!
