With less than a dozen games remaining in the NHL season the NW division is once again proving to be the most competitive in the NHL.  Three teams are tied for the division lead and only one is not going to make the playoffs at this point.

If the playoffs started today 4 of the 8 teams would be from the NW division.  Calgary, Colorado and Minnesota are all tied at 84 points with Vancouver sitting only two points back.  Only Edmonton would be on the outside looking in with a respectable 75 points.

This means that the final 10 or less games are more important than ever, and to add to the excitement 95% of the games are played between the division which means anything could happen.  Let the playoffs begin!
