BOSTON, MA -- The number is 68, that's all that's left in the regular season. Starting this afternoon at 1:00pm, only 68 games combined between the Premier and 19U Elite Divisions remain until the EHL playoffs.
The spotlight is on the Philadelphia Little Flyers, who are just two points away from clinching their 3rd straight Regular Season Championship. Philadelphia currently has a four-point lead on the Philadelphia Jr. Flyers with six games remaining on the schedule. The Jr. Flyers have three games left in their regular season, and they would have to win out and get some help in order to pass their cross-town rival.

Saturday, February 25th at 3:30pm
Philadelphia Little Flyers vs. Walpole Express - Ice Works Complex
If the Little Flyers don't knock off the Philadelphia Revolution on Wednesday, their next chance at clinching comes against a playoff opponent from last season. Philadelphia got by Walpole is last year's EHL Semi-Finals and knocked them off by the score of 2-1 at this year's Columbus Day Showcase. Are these two teams destined for another playoff showdown?
19U Elite Game of the Week
Saturday, February 25th at 6:45pm
New England Wolves vs. Boston Jr. Rangers - Laconia Ice Arena
This game is long overdue as a pair of snowstorms pushed back a "Game For Max." Maxwell Gagnon was diagnosed with acute lymphocytic leukemia type B, or leukemia ALL, this past summer. As Max continues to battle, he will spend the pre-game with the Wolves Elite team; watching the warmups from the players bench and serving as Honorary Captain.
