The Race For Eighth: March 23

Race_for_eighth_medium

 

After this weekend, the first seven spots seem to be secure in the Eastern Conference playoff race.  With the Sabres, Canadiens and Panthers all losing on Saturday it has turned into a three four team race for the eighth and final spot in the Eastern Conference.  It seemed that one of the three above teams would easily be in the playoffs but with all three teams struggling and the resurgence of the Ottawa Senators, it appears that the Sens could sneak into the eighth spot.

With 10 games remaining on the schedule it's impossible to pick who will earn the final spot but the Boston Bruins are hoping it's not the Sens.  The Sens have been unbelievable and have won nine of their last 10 games.  They are currently only two points behind the Sabres and seven points behind the eighth place Canadiens.
