Update on Lightning Playoff Clinching Scenario
Missy Zielinski breaks down what needs to happen for the Lightning to clinch a playoff berth.

To clinch a playoff spot Tuesday night three different things need to happen. The Lightning need to win in any fashion, the Washington Capitals need to lose in regulation and the New Jersey Devils need to lose in any way.

It would be the Bolts first playoff appearance since the 2010-11 season.

Washington hosts the Dallas Stars at Verizon Center at 7 p.m. Tuesday, while New Jersey visits Buffalo also at 7 p.m.
