Ah right, my bad. But still...they are going to beat the Sabres!
I can guarantee you if an injured Pens team has to play a young Sabres team with a playoff spot on the line, the Sabres will absolutely not be an easy loss on that night. That is a team that would LOVE to end their season knocking the Pens out of the playoffs.
Pittsburgh only needs one point to clinch a playoff spot and they play Buffalo in their last game.
If Ottawa wins out, Boston wins one more, and the Pens only get one point, the Pens don't make it. We have 97 points and need 2 to clinch. Pens need 3 to clinch. (assuming Ottawa wins out, and Boston doesn't s*** the bed the rest of the way)
You guys are crazy. We're playing like complete crap and you want the hottest team in the league to stay in pace with us
Yup, because the team the Sens will be 1 point behind (assuming they win tonight) is a team slumping even worst than the Wings. Not worried one bit. In my eyes Boston losing is more important than the Sens losing. By a mile.
