Tailing the Komets

Different scenarios

I'm just kind of throwing this out there to see if I can make sense of it all.

If Rapid City continues to lose tonight, Colorado clinches the conference title because the Eagles own the tiebreaker with Bloomington. That would mean Bloomington, Rapid City and Missouri are all tied for second place, with Bloomington having two games remaining and Rapid City and Missouri one each. Wichita is solidly in fifth and can't move up or down since Quad City lost to Dayton. The Komets trail Quad City by one point and lead Dayton by one point.

If the Komets win and Quad City loses in regulation, the Komets can climb to sixth. If the teams tie, Quad City owns the tiebreaker. If the Komets tie with Dayton for points, the Gems own the tiebreaker because of more overall wins.

That means, if Dayton beats QC, and the Komets lose to Colorado, the Komets will play Colorado in the first round. If Quad City beats Dayton, it doesn't matter if the Komets win or lose, and they'll face the No. 2 seed, likely meaning it will be Bloomington but that won't be decided until Sunday night. That's assuming Bloomington beats Evansville twice. And that doesn't take into consideration what happens if any of the games goes to overtime or shootouts.

I think that's correct, but maybe somebody wants to check my math.

That's assuming there's actual blood flow to your head, Hit. Sometimes you have to wonder. LOL.

You failed to give consideration to factoring in computing pi to the 10,000th decimal place, divide that by my overall GPA of 3.714, then multiply that by the total number of CHL games played, then add up the total number of goals scored.

Then that must be graphed on on an Excel spreadsheet for the bloggers viewing pleasure.....LOL....You do realize that I'm only joking?

Blake I think you have been watching too much "Who is on first" routines!

No need to even think about this if they had won those pre-Christmas games that everyone seems to be nonchalant about.

Mrs. Mightbite here...
What a great job last night guys! Fore-checking was outstanding and really brought the results. You worked hard and made an almost impossible comeback a great comeback! Keep it up tonight and we'll send those Colorado wussies (32 shaking off Nasty = wussy supreme) back knowing where Fort Wayne is now.
