PLAYOFF RACE: JETS VS HABS
Tonight in Winnipeg, its the Jets biggest and last game of the season as they take on the Canadiens. The Jets currently sit 9th in the East with 51 points, just 1 back of both the Ottawa Senators and the New York Rangers for the 8th and final playoff spot. With a win over the Montreal Canadiens tonight the Jets would move into 8th, but its not a done deal as both the Senators and the Rangers have 2 games remaining. The Rangers have a game tonight against Carolina and the Senators have a game against Washington. In order for the Jets to make the playoffs they need either the Sens or the Rangers to lose two in a row in Regulation. So at this moment all the Jets can do is win the game against Montreal and hope for the best.
Onto the Montreal Canadiens. The Habs currently sit in a tie for second in the East with 59 points along side Boston.They will be looking to move in front of the Bruins with a win.
