NHL Standings 2012: Blues Just Two Points Behind Canucks With Two Games Remaining

The 2012 NHL regular season is coming to a close, and with just a few games left the St. Louis Blues are hoping to overtake the Vancouver Canucks for the No. 1 overall seed in the Western Conference playoff bracket. The Canucks have been red-hot recently (8-1-1 in their last 10 games), while the Blues have been in a bit of a funk -- St. Louis is just 3-3-4 in their last 10, which is the worst mark of any projected playoff team in the West.

Here is an updated look at the Western Conference playoff picture heading into Thursday's games:

WESTERN GP W L PTS
