Wednesday Update To The Eastern Conference Playoff Race

In regards to the 2010 NHL playoff race, Wednesday night was a quiet night in the Eastern Conference with only one game of interest. The Rangers beat the Maple Leafs 5-1 to keep their playoff hopes firmly alive. This makes updating the chart fairly easy:

 TEAM #6 Montreal (87 pts) #7 Philadelphia (86 pts) #8 Boston (85 pts) #9 NY Rangers (84 pts)
 Thursday at Hurricanes vs Sabres
 Friday at Rangers vs Flyers
 Saturday vs Maple Leafs vs Hurricanes
 Sunday vs Rangers at Capitals at Flyers

New York is now one point behind an idle Boston club who will face off against the Buffalo Sabres on Thursday. The Montreal Canadiens will be able to clinch a playoff spot with a win against the Carolina Hurricanes on Thursday as well.
