COLUMBUS BLUE JACKETS (38-30-7) AT PHILADELPHIA FLYERS (39-27-9), 7 P.M.

(SportsNetwork.com) - A key battle in the Eastern Conference playoff chase is on tap Thursday, as the Philadelphia Flyers host the Columbus Blue Jackets in the regular-season finale between the clubs at Wells Fargo Center.

The Flyers currently hold the third of the Metropolitan Division's three automatic bids to the playoffs with 87 points, leaving them four points ahead of fourth-place Columbus for that distinction. Both teams have seven games left in the regular season, including Thursday's showdown in South Philly.

The Blue Jackets are aiming for only the second playoff spot in franchise history. Columbus is currently one point in front of Toronto for the last postseason berth in the East, but the Jackets own two games in hand over the Maple Leafs, who host Boston on Thursday.

Detroit is only one point ahead of Columbus for the first of the conference's two wild card spots, and the Red Wings are idle on Thursday.
