Here are my Round 1 predictions! Feel free to leave your predictions in the comments.
The Pittsburgh Penguins begin their quest for Lord Stanley’s Cup as they take on their new division rivals, Columbus Blue Jackets.
10 weeks since suffering a stroke, Penguins All-Star Defenseman Kris Letang looks to get back into the line-up as the team prepares for post-season play.
Complete Playoff seeding has yet to be determined but, it is assured that the Penguins will seed no higher or lower than second place in the east. Between now and April 12th any of these teams could potentially jump (or fall) into seventh place and be the Penguins first round opponent. Flyers, Red Wings, Blue Jacket or Devils.
The Penguins captured the #2 seed by winning the Metropolitan Division Thursday night as they defeated the Winnipeg Jets 4-2. While that wasn’t the sole reason they won the division yesterday, it was nice to be assured that they will not finish any lower than 2nd in the East.
The Final two weeks of Regular season play begins on April 1st. The Penguins, already Playoff bound, will look to sure up the Division title and solidify their spot in the post season seeding. Something they can do with a single win.
It is hard to argue that last nights game wasn’t a must win scenario. Losing six of their last eight including the last three games is something to be concerned about. Below I point out some of what I noticed in the game against the Kings and what I believe may be the biggest issue with this team.
