FLYERS MAKE PLAYOFFS IF ALL OF THIS HAPPENS TONIGHT!

By Jenny Masters

The Flyers host the Caps tonight in their season finale.

And if the Penguins and Red Wings lose tonight in regulation and the Flyers beat the Capitals in regulation, the Flyers, Capitals and Red Wings would tie at 89 points, leaving Detroit out because of the fewest regulation wins.

The Capitals and Flyers would tie at 31 regulation wins, 35 regulation/overtime wins and 39 total wins.

The Flyers have the odd game, so the Flyers’ 4-3 shootout win in Philadelphia is tossed out. The Capitals won in Washington and a Flyers win tonight would give both teams two points in the head-to-head series.

Then it comes down to goal differential and the Capitals have the worst goal differential between the teams (-38 to -25 through Monday.

Under that scenario, the Flyers would squeak into the playoffs.
