It’s a typical Thursday night with a lot of games scheduled and some quality games but three games stand out in my mind. The first is Toronto-Boston because these two teams might end up fighting each other for the final playoff spot in the east. The other two quality games are between quality western conference teams with Edmonton playing Dallas and San Jose playing Detroit. Dallas, San Jose and Detroit all should easily make it into the playoffs but Edmonton playing in the killer division will be in a fight for the playoffs through they may not be much less of a quality team than the other three.
