Will the PENGUINS make the playoffs?


You want me to put my ear to the ground? Listen for hoof beats? Look for broken twigs?

Re: Will the PENGUINS make the playoffs?

Just making the playoffs doesn't mean jack. Peyton Manning gets to the playoffs every year too. Like the Pens, his team's annually get shamed and embarrassed once they get there. They've been there every year since 2007, yet one would think they don't know how playoff hockey is played.

We’re not going to apologize for caring. We’re not.

The way things are going, it could all come down to the head to head matchup on Tuesday.

Re: Will the PENGUINS make the playoffs?

I voted yes only because their backs are against the wall to win 2 of the last 4 they have a 50/50 chance I think its gonna come down to the Ottawa game tues regaurdless what they do today. the flyers are going to have a lot to do with pens making the playoffs because they win today puts the pens on a slippery slope if the sens win today a 1 point lead going into the game tues and the flyers have to play the senators on the last game of the season if its possible a flyer loss to Ottawa puts the pens out of the playoffs I think the flyers lose on purpose

Re: Will the PENGUINS make the playoffs?

They don't have to beat Ottawa to get in. Alot of teams are very close and even the Tiebreakers are close with ROW. Here is a look at the team points and games remaining. 5 out of these 6 teams will make it in.

Islanders 98 points 3 games
Washington 97 points 3 games
Detroit 95 points 4 games
Pittsburgh 95 points 4 games
Boston 95 Points 3 games
Ottawa 92 points 4 games

Ottawa's ROW isn't very good so everyone holds a tiebreaker on them.

Re: Will the PENGUINS make the playoffs?

Yes but Detroit is 3-5-2 and been playing like crap as well. I think Pittsburgh should make the playoffs but if they don't start playing better they are going to get bounced in the first or second round anyway. In some ways maybe it would be a bigger wakeup call if they missed the Playoffs all together???? I don't know. That being said I will be pulling for them to make the playoffs. Most of the teams have a tough schedule and they have a game in hand on Boston. This maybe the first year in a long time that 95 points won't get a playoff spot.

Re: Will the PENGUINS make the playoffs?

yes its a log jam for sure these last 4 games are going to be fun to watch with so much on the line. it could come down to which goalie gets the hottest fleury has been good but a little shakey the last couple games but to his defense the
D hasn't given him any help. Its possible a team with 98 or 99 pts. could miss the playoffs
