PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- A pair of Eastern Conference heavyweights with unfinished business meet for the final time this season Saturday when the Ottawa Senators face the Philadelphia Flyers.

Ottawa enters play as one of the league's hottest teams. The Senators have won seven of their last eight and have just one regulation loss in their last 14 contests dating to February 9.

Already assured of a playoff spot, Ottawa has a nine-point lead over Buffalo for first place in the Northeast Division and tops the East by four points over Carolina.

Daniel Alfredsson scored his 39th goal and Antoine Vermette added his 19th for the Senators, who won their fourth straight game with Friday's 3-1 victory over the Sabres.

The victory moved Ottawa within two wins of the second 50-victory season in franchise history and four from tying the team record (52) set in 2002-2003.

Philadelphia has won its last three contests and trails the New York Rangers by one point in the Atlantic Division race.

Mike Knuble scored a pair of power-play goals in the first period and Simon Gagne added his 41st for the Flyers in Wednesday's 6-3 triumph over the New York Rangers.

The Flyers won the first two matchups against the Senators this season before Ottawa posted a 3-2 victory February 11.
