Montreal and Washington have just 48 games remaining in their regular season. Both are playoff bound but tonight’s game has some importance. The Canadians have a nine point advantage over the Washington Capitals for the second seed and a win by Washington in regulation will pull them six points behind Montreal with three games remaining. At issue for Montreal is their final three games of the season are all on the road. The good news is that there are no back to backs in that sequence. Washington will finish the season with three home games and they too will have no back to backs. These two teams are on pace to meet in the Eastern conference semifinals should they advance past the first round of the playoffs. A regulation or overtime/shootout win by Montreal clinches the second seed for the Canadians. If Montreal gets just a point they don’t clinch but are in good shape ahead by 8 points with three games left to play. Montreal just broke a three game losing streak by defeating the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday by the score of 3-2. Heading into their game with the Lightning the Canadians had allowed 18 goals in their previous three games.
