Eastern Conference Big Game of the Night: Atlanta at Tampa. Tampa pretty much eliminated Florida’s chances by winning on Monday. Tonight they hope to do the same to Atlanta. An Atlanta win keeps their slim playoff chances alive. These teams play one more game next Tuesday and both these games are must wins for Atlanta.
Western Conference Big Game of the Night: San Jose at Los Angeles: Los Angeles sits 2 points behind 8th place San Jose and 3 behind 7th place Edmonton. They need this win to keep them in the hunt because they also have fewer games left on the schedule. I am actually going to disagree with my algorithm and say San Jose will win this game.
