Philadelphia Flyers vs Detroit Red Wings is the only game that matters tonight for the Boston Bruins

What luck! It's on NBC Sports!

The Bruins performance last night was not great and not helpful for their playoff push.


I'll tell you the truth: It doesn't look good. A couple of Flyers wins and a Bruins regulation loss to Detroit on Thursday could put the final nail in the coffin.

Place Team GP W L OTL PTS ROW Pot Max Phi Det Bos
WC2 Philadelphia Flyers 78 39 26 13 91 36 8 99 -- 6 4
FE3 Detroit Red Wings 79 40 28 11 91 38 6 97 8 -- 4
Out Boston Bruins 80 41 30 9 91 37 4 95 8 6 --

The only game that matters: Philadelphia Flyers vs Detroit Red Wings

Lets see:

  • The Red Wings have one more ROW than the Bruins, and the same amount of points with 1 game in hand.
  • The Flyers have one fewer ROW than the Bruins, and the same amount of points with 2 games in hand.

Advantage: Rooting for Philadelphia.

Games coming up?

  • Red Wings have games @ Boston and host the Rangers to finish out the season.
  • Flyers have games against Toronto (lol), Pittsburgh, and finish at the Islanders.

More likely to get more points? Gotta go with Philly. Advantage: Rooting for Philadelphia.

If only that game were nationally available on a mid-tier cable channel...oh wait! It is!

  • Game Time: 8pm, tonight
  • TV: NBC Sports in America, TVA in Canada. You can stream the game with the NBC Sports Live app or online.
  • Horrible Jerks we hate love: Winging it in Motown and Broad Street Hockey.

Should be a good game, anyways. Dylan Larkin! Shayne Gostisbehere! Check it out tonight!
