The Two O'Clock Number

96 -- Minimum number of points the Flyers could need to qualify for the 2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs.  The Flyers currently sit at 93 points.

With a win tonight, the Flyers would become the first team in the Eastern Conference to clinch a playoff berth.

CORRECTION: The Flyers can't clinch tonight, because even with a win and a New Jersey loss tonight, Carolina would be able to pass the Flyers by one point should they win all their games and the Flyers lose all their remaining games. Toronto and Atlanta, for the record, can't catch the Flyers at all from here on out. 

If the Flyers win tonight in Atlanta and on Saturday in Dallas (or at any point the rest of the year), they'll have clinched a playoff spot.
