The Flyers had hoped to get their second-round playoff matchup settled last night, but no such luck. They'll have to wait until tomorrow night.
Had Ottawa closed out its first-round series against Buffalo in Game 6, the Flyers, seeded third in the Eastern Conference, would know they were playing the fifth-seeded New York Rangers in the next round. There had been talk that the Flyers-Rangers series could start as soon as Wednesday.
Buffalo's 3-0 victory last night in Ottawa kept the second-seeded Sabres alive against the seventh-seeded Senators, heading into tomorrow's Game 7 in Buffalo. If Buffalo wins, the Sabres play the Flyers in a series that likely will start Friday at the CoreStates Center.
