Washington, DC – The Southeast Division is still up for grabs after the Washington Capitals beat the Florida Panthers, 4-2, on Thursday night.
But both teams came out of the game happy due to the final score in Philadelphia. The Flyers took down the Sabres by a 2-1 margin to give Washington and Florida each a spot in the postseason.
The Southeast Division will be decided on Saturday. The Panthers will take a two-point lead into Saturday's game against Carolina. The Capitals, who sit eighth in the Eastern Conference with 90 points, will end the regular season at the New York Rangers. Florida will need just one point against the Hurricanes to win their first-ever division crown. However, Washington holds the tiebreaker over the Panthers.
