Penguins’ win today could put them as high as 7th in East

Just a short snippet this morning.  Seems like we’ve been talking about important games for about two months now.  But today’s game in Dallas versus the Stars is, well, important.

But because of the recent struggles particularly by the Panthers and Sabres a win today by the Penguins, coupled with a Florida regulation loss to the Capitals in D.C. would not only put the Penguins back into a playoff seed, but would actually put them in the 7th spot.  The two teams would be tied with 70 points, but the Pens would have the higher seed because of one more win.

Now, naturally, these standings are going to flip-flop every day until April.  So that scenario is as temporary as it gets.

But it’d sure look good to Penguins fans, wouldn’t it ??
