And now it is down to three. Three games to determine if the Boston Bruins make the NHL playoffs. The first one tonight in Washington and live on Sports Radio 92.9 The Ticket.

In a nutshell the playoff picture looks like this...the B's begin the night two points behind Detroit, one point behind Pittsburgh and tied with Ottawa. Keep in mind all three teams have played one more game than the B's.

After tonight, it's on to the  Florida Panthers tomorrow night and then at Tampa Bay to finish the regular season Saturday night.

Suffice to say, the Bruins still can finish 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th or out of the playoffs.

NOTE:  Live coverage on tonight's game on Sports Radio 92.9 The Ticket begins at 7:30pm.
