The race for the playoffs has heated up. There is a lot of racetrack left but also a lot of contenders. The difficult for all the teams involved is the three-point games that end in OT or a shootout.
The Rangers play the Wings Thursday night. Who do the Senators want to win? It probably doesn’t matter, they just don’t want a three-point game.
We’re going to be watching the standings a lot here in the next couple of months.
