With the NHL playoffs just a month away, it's crunch time for teams looking to secure their tickets to the first round.

Saturday's edition of Hockey Night and Canada features two contests that may have an impact on who makes it through to the post-season.

Aiming to hold onto their Eastern Conference wild card spot, the Montreal Canadiens are hosting the Ottawa Senators on Saturday night. In the Western Conference, the Phoenix Coyotes are looking to keep their playoff hopes alive in their last match-up of the season with the Calgary Flames. 

Both games are available to stream online. To watch them, click on the links below. 

Ottawa Senators at Montreal Canadiens — 7 p.m. ET

While Carey Price might soon be ready for game action, the immediate focus for the Montreal Canadiens is ending their current rough stretch.

The Canadiens are looking to avoid matching a season high with a fourth straight defeat Saturday night against the visiting Ottawa Senators.

Montreal (35-25-7) is 3-4-1 since the Olympic break minus Price, who aggravated a lower-body injury during practice in Sochi before posting an 0.59 goals-against average in helping Canada win its second straight gold medal.

Calgary Flames at Phoenix Coyotes — 10 p.m. ET

The Phoenix Coyotes have a chance to climb into the playoff picture thanks in part to the Calgary Flames' latest win.

The Coyotes try to continue their recent home domination of the Flames as these Pacific Division foes close their season series Saturday night.

Phoenix (31-25-11) returns to the desert following what it considered a disappointing 2-2-0 road trip. The Coyotes pulled out back-to-back wins over Tampa Bay and Florida before falling 2-1 at Boston in Thursday's finale.
