The stakes couldn’t be much higher for the Philadelphia Flyers going into today’s game against the Pittsburgh Penguins, which is set to start at 3:00 p.m. ET.
Going into the third period of Boston’s game versus Ottawa, the Senators had a 4-1 lead, which makes this game all the more important for Philadelphia. If Boston loses, then regardless of the outcome of the Detroit-New York Rangers game (which is also in progress), the Flyers can secure a playoff spot with a win against Pittsburgh this afternoon.
