Silver Nuggets: Battle for Florida

The Ottawa Senators return to action tonight when they host the New Jersey Devils. Ottawa sits three points behind New Jersey in the fight to finish sixth and earn the right to likely play the Florida Panthers. After tonight, the Senators and Devils will play one more time on the final day of the season in New Jersey.

A win tonight and the gap is down to one point (would also bring them within a point of Boston). A regulation loss and the Senators are five points behind New Jersey with eight games to go and stay three points behind Boston. Needless to say, tonight is a big game on both fronts.

Tonight's game is the fourth last home game of the season. The Senators host the Penguins on Saturday, the Hurricanes on 3 April and the Bruins on 5 April.
