With so many teams in the playoff race every night seems to have a bunch of games having very significant playoff implications. Tonight is no different. The biggest might be the NY Islanders vs Montreal but Boston-Atlanta and Toronto-Carolina also have a significance in the eastern conference playoff race, especially if the Islanders beat Montreal. In the west Vancouver and Edmonton play the first game of 3 straight games against each other. Vancouver has an interesting schedule as almost all of their remaining games are against teams they are competing for for the final few playoff spots. Their remaining schedule is: Edmont0n-Edmonton-Edmonton-Los Angeles-Minnesota-Minnesota-Anaheim-Los Angeles-Calgary-Anaheim-San Jose-San Jose-Calgary. To say that their playoff fortunes ( and many others too) are still in their own hands is a very true statement.
