It is possible that the final Wild Card spot in the Eastern Conference will be determined by a tiebreaker game.

The Florida Panthers have 92 points in 80 games while the Philadelphia Flyers have 96 points in 81 contests, so it is possible for Florida to catch up to the Flyers in terms of points. The two teams are currently tied in terms of ROW, which is the primary method for breaking a tie and it's possible that they will also end up tied in terms of goal differential. In the unlikely scenario that they end up tied in all those categories, the NHL has announced that a tiebreaking game will be played between Florida and Philadelphia on Tuesday April 10. There would be a draw to determine home ice advantage for that contest and it will operate under playoff rules, which means that the game would be subject to continuous overtime as opposed to a potential shootout.

Johnny Gaudreau said it would be "sweet" to play for the Philadelphia Flyers someday.

Gaudreau grew up a Flyers fan. "I’ve got a ton of family here, all my friends — I actually have a wedding this week here in South Jersey," Gaudreau said. "All my friends come back here, all my good friends, and kids that I’ve played with my whole life are from South Jersey. So, it would be sweet to play here some day. You know you never know in sports, but it’s a lot of support back here in South Jersey and the Philly area." We'll see what the future holds for Gaudreau, but he's made a long-term commitment to the Calgary Flames, so he won't be changing teams anytime soon. This will be the second season of his six-year, $40.5 million contract.

The Calgary Flames and Winnipeg Jets have reportedly contacted the Rangers about the possibility of acquiring Antti Raanta.

Raanta has one season left on his two-year, $2 million contract and would be do for a substantial raise after that if his 2017-18 campaign ends up being anything like this season where he posted a 2.26 GAA and .922 save percentage in 30 contests. The Rangers likely wouldn't be able to afford that and Henrik Lundqvist, so that's when the two teams would probably part ways. However, there's a more immediate consideration and that's the fact that Vegas could simply scoop Raanta up in the expansion draft. Given the chance of that happening, it wouldn't be surprising if the Rangers traded Raanta now rather than let him be taken for nothing by Vegas. An alternative solution would be to work out a deal with Vegas where the Golden Knights take a different player from the Rangers in exchange for some other compensation like a draft pick.
