The 2024 Stanley Cup playoff area was set Tuesday evening with the Washington Capitals securing the ultimate wild-card berth within the Jap Convention.

T.J. Oshie’s empty-net purpose was the distinction in a 2-1 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers, and the consequence was sufficient for Washington to fend off the Detroit Crimson Wings and Pittsburgh Penguins within the postseason race. Detroit’s 5-4 shootout win over the Montreal Canadiens was rendered irrelevant.

That wasn’t the one consequence of consequence with simply two extra days left within the common season. This is how the Jap and Western Convention brackets are shaking out:

Jap Convention

  • Florida Panthers vs. Tampa Bay Lightning 
  • Boston Bruins vs. Toronto Maple Leafs
  • New York Rangers vs. Washington Capitals 
  • Carolina Hurricanes vs. New York Islanders

Western Convention

  • Dallas Stars vs. Vegas Golden Knights 
  • Winnipeg Jets vs. Colorado Avalanche 
  • Vancouver Canucks vs. Nashville Predators 
  • Edmonton Oilers vs. Los Angeles Kings

The Florida Panthers entered Tuesday evening trailing the Boston Bruins within the Atlantic Division. By the point the video games for each groups concluded, the Panthers had secured a division title.

A Bruins defeat was step one wanted for Florida and Boston duly delivered. Jiri Smejkal and Jakob Chychrun mixed to place the Ottawa Senators forward 2-0 within the second interval at TD Backyard, and Artem Zub canceled out Pavel Zacha’s power-play tally because the Sens performed the position of spoiler.

Dealing with off with the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Panthers offered the second a part of the method themselves as they overturned a 2-0 deficit after the primary interval due to 4 unanswered targets within the second body. Sam Reinhart’s empty-netter with 2:20 left in regulation was the cherry on prime.

Over within the West, in the meantime, the Winnipeg Jets secured home-ice benefit within the first spherical in opposition to the Colorado Avalanche. A 4-3 win over the Seattle Kraken was greater than they required to ensure a second-place end within the Central Division.

Contemplating the house and highway splits for the Avs, solely having to journey to Denver for 3 video games at most may very well be enormous for the Jets. Colorado is a dominant 30-9-1 at Ball Enviornment and a extra pedestrian 19-16-6 all over the place else.

Attending to host the Avalanche to open the postseason was one thing value celebrating for the Jets.
