ST. LOUIS -- It was a moment for NHL commissioner Gary Bettman to celebrate the success of the game right now. Playoff hockey is as good as it gets, and the league was just coming off a race to the playoffs that was one of the most exciting in years.

Chatting with a small group of reporters during the first intermission of the Minnesota Wild's win over the St. Louis Blues, Bettman shared how happy he was with the current standings point system.

“The league has never been more competitive,” he said.
