Thursday Night Eastern Conference Update: Bruins Gain Ground While Canadiens Lose It

The Boston Bruins gained the points they needed while the Montreal Canadiens could not clinch a playoff position. With their 3-1 win against the Buffalo Sabres, the Boston Bruins leapfrogged the Philadelphia Flyers and the Montreal Canadiens, finding themselves in the sixth position in the Eastern Conference. The Canadiens drop to seventh while the idle Flyers find are currently in the bubble position.

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

The Philadelphia Flyers find themselves in a must win series against the Rangers this weekend. All they need to do win a game in regulation and they will guarantee themselves a spot in the playoffs, along with the Bruins and Canadiens. If the game goes to overtime, it would then come down to the final game of the year against the same team.
