San Jose Sharks at Winnipeg Jets (7 p.m. ET; SNW, NBCSCA, ESPN+, SN NOW)
The Jets (44-32-3) will try to cement their hold on the second expensive card in the Western Conference. Winnipeg leads the Calgary Flames by one point in the wild-card race, though the Jets have one game in hand, and hold a three-point lead over the Nashville Predators. The Sharks (22-41-16) were eliminated from playoff contention.
Buffalo Sabers at New York Rangers (7 p.m. ET; MSG, MSG-B, ESPN+, SN NOW)
The Sabers (39-32-7) are trying to stay in the playoff race, while the Rangers can make gains over the Carolina Hurricanes and New Jersey Devils in the D.C. Division. Buffalo trails Florida and the New York Islanders by six points in the Eastern Conference wild card race, but has two games in hand on each and could be eliminated from contention with a regulation loss, overtime loss or shootout loss and if the Panthers and the Islanders both get points, or wins from Florida or New York in any way. The Rangers (47-21-12) are two points behind the Devils for second in the division and can tie the two in the race for home ice advantage in at least the first round of the playoffs with their win. New York trails first place Carolina by three points.
Carolina Hurricanes at Ottawa Senators (7 p.m. ET; SNE, RDS, BSSO, ESPN+, SN NOW)
The Hurricanes (50-20-9) have a chance to build on their one-point lead at the Metropolitans with the second-place Devils not playing Monday. They can also win home ice advantage through at least one round of the playoffs. The Senators (38-35-7) were eliminated from playoff contention.
New York Islanders at Washington Capitals (7 p.m. ET; NBCSWA, MSGSN, ESPN+, SN NOW)

The Capitals (34-36-9) were eliminated from playoff contention.
Toronto Maple Leafs at Florida Panthers (7 p.m. ET; ESPN+, HULU, SNO, SNP, TVAS, SN NOW)
While the Maple Leafs (47-21-11) know they will finish second in the Atlantic Division and take on the Tampa Bay Lightning in the first round of the playoffs, the Panthers (42-31-7) are still fighting for a spot. They won six straight games, tied with the Islanders in the Eastern wild-card race, one point behind the Penguins. Florida holds its first wild card because it has one win (36-35) more than New York.
Dallas Stars at Detroit Red Wings (7 p.m. ET; BSDET, BSSWX, ESPN+, SN NOW)
The Stars (44-21-14) are still in a very tight race in the Central Division, with the top three teams separated by four points.

The Red Wings (35-34-10) were eliminated from the elimination competition.
Minnesota Wild at Chicago Blackhawks (9 p.m. ET; ESPN, SN NOW)
It was a tough race in the division, and the Wild (45-24-10) found themselves in third place, four points behind the first-place Avalanche and two points behind the second-place Stars. Minnesota’s 5-3 win over the St. Louis Blues on Saturday ended a three-game losing streak. The Blackhawks (25-48-6) are eliminated from playoff contention.
Nashville Predators at Calgary Flames (9:30 p.m. ET; SN1, SNW, TVAS, BSSO, ESPN+, SN NOW)
The Predators (40-31-8) and Flames (37-27-16) each trail in the Western wild card race. Calgary is just one point behind Winnipeg for their second wild card, and Nashville trails by three points, so this counts as a must-win game for each team. Nashville could be eliminated from contention with a regulation loss and one point from Winnipeg, an overtime or shootout loss and a Jets victory either way. Calgary comes out with a regulation loss and one point from Winnipeg, no overtime or shootout loss and a Jets victory in any way. Predators have one game in hand on the flames.

The Kraken (45-26-8) can move past the Los Angeles Kings for third place in the Pacific Division with a win. Seattle, who won four straight games, will tie Los Angeles on points, but lead in the match-winner tiebreaker (36-35). The Coyotes (28-39-13) are eliminated from playoff contention.
