Down the Homestretch

There were some interesting games played tonight... of the 5, 3 featured teams knocking on the door of the 8-spot in the East, 1 a team with still a mathematical chance of making the playoffs in the West and 1 a team looking to avoid playing either Anaheim or Dallas in the first round.

In the East, Buffalo, Florida and Washington all were victorious... pulling them within 3, 4 and 4 points respectively of Philadelphia. The Flyers have played less games then these rivals, which sets up a very interesting early tilt against the Bruins on Saturday.

The other game to look for results on tomorrow is a virtual elimination game with Buffalo traveling to play the Maple Leafs. If Toronto winds up the loser in regulation, that could be it for their playoff hopes given that Buffalo is right now closest to catching the Flyers.

Quite the fun time of year.
