Three teams tied in the East at 91 points - Wings, Boston, Philly.
Wings/Boston are fighting for automatic 3rd place bid. All three are fighting for the last wildcard spot behind NY Islanders with 97 points.
We have a game in hand over Boston.
The wings play Philly at home tonight and Boston on the road tomorrow, NY Rangers on Sat.
If we beat Boston tomorrow, we only need to pick up one more point (a tie with Philly or NY) to have 94 points and Boston could only pickup 2 points vs Ottawa - we lock up 3rd place.
If we lose to Boston tomorrow, we would have to win tonight vs Philly and on the road vs the Rangers to have a chance to tie Boston.
Beating Boston is a must - do you save the best goalie for tomorrow? Or play him twice?
