Laich on importance of beating Atlanta

Here's Brooks Laich talking about the Caps' 2-1 win over the Thrashers and the importance of ending the slide before it became a slump:

Something else the win accomplished: it edged the Caps closer to claiming the franchise's first President's Trophy. In fact, if San Jose loses in regulation at Minnesota tonight, they could clinch it tomorrow with a win or OT loss. (The Caps need any combination of three points won or lost by the Sharks to claim it. Also, Chicago still has a slim chance, but the Blackhawks would have to win out, and even then could only get to 113 points.)

fyi
if the caps only get one pt from the last 5 games - they could lose to chi if chi wins it's last 6 games
113 each means chi takes it based on overall wins

Lets just get the two points for the win and kick an exta point to get it over with......its just a formality at this point.

@Capt_Kirk

The caps lose a tie breaker v Chicago even with the head to head win? Not likely to happen but still I don't like that rule.

moltzjo:
most wins is the first tiebreaker - if caps and chi end up tie in pts - chi will have more wins

1. Wins: Most total wins among the tied teams.
2. Head-to-Head Record: Most points in games against each other among the tied teams.
3. Goal Differential: Using the total goals scored during the regular season, the greater positive differential between goals for and against among the tied teams.
