New York Islanders at Pittsburgh Penguins
New York - 23-26-3 - 49 pts - 13th in East
Pittsburgh - 12-32-10 - 34 pts - Last in East
So the Islanders are only six points out of the last playoff spot in the east. Seems whoever gets that eighth spot can't wait to give it away. The current holder of 8th place, the Maple Leafs, are 1-7-2 in their last 10 games. Suffice it to say that they Islanders have something to play for this afternoon at the Igloo.
Once again the Penguins will have the chance to go up against the Prince of Darkness. Hopefully this time it will turn out better than it did last time, when Satan scored the game winner in the shootout.
There is a rally outside the arena today at 12:00, being sposored by SlotsForMario.com and the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Hockey League outside of gate 3.
Let's go Pens!
