Maritimes Division still unsettled

While the bottom of the Maritimes Division has been solidified, the top is still very much up for grabs.

The Saint John Sea Dogs will finish last in the division this season after finishing first the past two. With their loss on Saturday, the Sea Dogs confirmed their position outside the league's playoff picture and will finish either 17th or 18th overall.

This will be the first time since 2014 that the Sea Dogs have missed the playoffs and the fourth time in franchise history.

The top of the Maritimes Division is still uncertain as we enter the final week of the regular season. The Acadie-Bathurst Titan pulled two points ahead of the Halifax Mooseheads for top spot with a huge 3-2 home win on Saturday in front of a national television audience.

Both the Titan and Mooseheads have three games remaining on their schedules. Here's a look at what's left for them:

Wednesday vs Saint John
Friday vs Moncton
Saturday vs Bathurst 
Tuesday vs Charlottetown
Friday at Charlottetown
Saturday at Halifax

Halifax definitely has the easier schedule, but the fact that there is still one head-to-head meeting remaining makes things a lot more fun.

The Charlottetown Islanders will finish third in the Maritimes while the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles will finish fourth and the Moncton Wildcats fifth.

The Blainville-Boisbriand Armada will finish first overall in the league and will have home ice advantage throughout the playoffs.
