Let’s take a look at today’s playoff clinching/seeding opportunities. NHL.com provided the rundown.

Western Conference

1. If the San Jose Sharks lose in regulation tonight, the Blackhawks would clinch the West’s #1 seed.

Eastern Conference

The New Jersey Devils would clinch the Atlantic division with a win over the New York Islanders and a Penguins’ regulation loss.

Boston: Would clinch a playoff spot if they generate one point. Furthermore, they can clinch the sixth seed if they beat the Hurricanes and the Canadiens lose.

Montreal: Would clinch a playoff spot if they generate one point.

It’s looking like the Rangers and Flyers will play for the eighth seed tomorrow, though that’s not a guarantee.
