The Flyers can lock up a playoff berth with a win over the last place Montreal Canadiens tonight
The Philadelphia Flyers are scheduled to host the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday night, as the worst team in the Eastern Conference travels to Philadelphia.
With only eight games remaining on the schedule and firmly locked into a Playoff spot, the Flyers will look to finish the season strong. They're coming off a shooutout victory over the Washington Capitals on Thursday and have won nine of their 12 games in March.
The Canadiens come to town following a 5-1 victory over the Senators on Friday. Tonight they will be playing their second game in as many days. They are 4-5 on the tail end of back-to-back games this season.
Trailing the Rangers by five points for the division lead and the Penguins by four points for home-ice advantage it's highly unlikely the Flyers host a Playoff series this season.
