With the race for the playoffs becoming more heated every day, here are the games that will impact the Flyers Wednesday night:

Tampa Bay Lightning @ Toronto Maple Leafs

The wild card is a very real scenario for the Flyers. The Maple Leafs hold the first Wild Card spot with 80 points, but trail the Lighting in the Atlantic Division by a single point. With 79 points, the Flyers would be right in the mix but for now they hold second place in the Metropolitan Division.

 

 

Here are the scores from the games that impacted the Flyers Tuesday night:

Metropolitan Division standings:

1 – 94 pts – Penguins

2 – 79 pts – Flyers     – won 3-2(OT) against the Chicago Blackhawks

3 – 78 pts – Rangers     – won 8-4 against the Ottawa Senators

4 – 76 pts – Blue Jackets     – lost 3-1 to the Carolina Hurricanes

5- 76 pts – Capitals     – won 3-2 against the Anaheim Ducks

6- 71 pts – Devils –     lost 4-2 to the Boston Bruins

7 – 69 pts – Hurricanes     – won 3-1 against the Columbus Blue Jackets
