Montreal is up big against Toronto.
Carolina beat Pittsburgh in OT, so points all around.
The best news: Florida didn’t play, and has to play the Penguins tomorrow.
The standings will look like this:
5. Carolina 95 points, three games left.
6. Pitt 93 points, four left.
7. Montreal 92 points, four left.
8. Rangers 89 points, three left.
9. Florida 87 points, four left.
10. Buffalo lost to the Devils and is just about done.
The Habs could be five up on the Rangers by the time they arrive at MSG Tuesday, but will be no worse than three up.
So it could come down to the Rangers and Panthers for the final spot, and with the game-in-hand and the Rangers’ reeling, Florida might be in good shape. And if the Cats beat the Penguins tomorrow, they’ll be tied with three to play.
