Tonight we are going to try something different in an attempt to engage our readership as the Winnipeg Jets' playoff push continues by debuting our Around the NHL coverage.

Around the NHL will be a nightly thread which will be used to update fans on Western Conference games that have an effect on Winnipeg's playoff chances.

Taking a look at our big board, we are tracking four games this evening:

FINAL 1st 2nd 3rd T
Large_medium Los Angeles 0 2 1 3
Large_medium Winnipeg 0 1 0 1

FINAL 1st 2nd 3rd T
Large_medium St. Louis 1 1 0 2
Large_medium Nashville 1 0 0 1

FINAL 1st 2nd 3rd T
Large_medium Vancouver 0 1 0 1
Large_medium Dallas 3 2 1 6

FINAL 1st 2nd 3rd T
Large_medium Montreal 1 1 0 2
Large_medium Phoenix 3 0 2 5

And now we will take a look at the playoff odds dependant of tonight's outcomes:

Team Reg. Win Reg. Loss
Winnipeg Jets +4.9% -5.8%
Dallas Stars +7.2% -12.3%
Vancouver Canucks +7.4% -5.0%
Phoenix Coyotes +5.7% -7.7%

Finally, here's a look at the potential best and worst case scenarios as it relates to tonight's action:

Best Case Scenario Worst Case Scenario
WPG, VAN, MTL win clean LA and PHX win clean, DAL/VAN 3 point game

We hope that you pop in this thread and use it periodically through the evening as you watch the Jets and Los Angeles Kings play.
