Ten games around the rinks tonight, and the team with the most at stake tonight is going to be watching from their couches. Go figure.

This could be a huge night in the Northwest Division, as Vancouver can clinch the Northwest Division title, and a top 3 spot, with a regulation loss by Calgary. The Caps could also get one step closer to the playoffs tonight by clinching position over Florida. Here’s the rundown.

BOSTON BRUINS. At Columbus. Can clinch 13 East with a win and an Islanders regulation loss.

BUFFALO SABRES. Carolina. Would be eliminated from President’s Trophy consideration with any loss.

CALGARY FLAMES. Phoenix. Would be eliminated from President’s Trophy consideration, 1 Northwest, and 3 West, with a regulation loss.

FLORIDA PANTHERS. Philadelphia. Would be eliminated from 1 Southeast and 3 East with any loss, or with a Washington win or overtime/shootout. Would be eliminated from 4 East with any loss and a Pittsburgh win, or a regulation loss and a Pittsburgh overtime/shootout.

MONTREAL CANADIENS. Washington. Can clinch 14 West, and 4 Northwest, with a win, an Ottawa regulation loss, or an overtime/shootout loss and an Ottawa overtime/shootout loss.

NEW YORK ISLANDERS. At Rangers. Would be eliminated from 4 East, and 2 Atlantic, with any loss, or a Pittsburgh win or overtime/shootout. Would be eliminated from 5 East with a regulation loss.

OTTAWA SENATORS. Pittsburgh. Would be eliminated from 6 East, and 2 Northeast, with a regulation loss, a Montreal win, or an overtime/shootout loss and a Montreal overtime/shootout loss.

PITTSBURGH PENGUINS. At Ottawa. Can clinch 13 East, and 4 Atlantic, with a win or overtime/shootout, or with any Islanders loss. Can clinch 12 East with a win and any Florida loss, or with an overtime/shootout loss and a Florida regulation loss.

SAN JOSE SHARKS. At Dallas. Can clinch 13 West with a win.

TAMPA BAY LIGHTNING. Idle. Can clinch 13 East with an Islanders regulation loss.

VANCOUVER CANUCKS. Idle. CAN CLINCH PLAYOFFS, NORTHWEST DIVISION CHAMPIONSHIP, AND 3 WEST with a Calgary regulation loss.

WASHINGTON CAPITALS. At Montreal. Can clinch 12 East, and 4 Southeast, with a win or overtime/shootout, or with any Florida loss.

The Capitals’ magic number to clinch the playoffs is 8. It could go down to 4 if the Caps win in Montreal and Buffalo beats Carolina.
