Penguins 5, Sabres 4 (SO) on March 13th in Pittsburgh
Penguins 4, Sabres 2 on January 5th in Buffalo
Sabres 4, Penguins 2 on November 17th in Buffalo
Playoff position update:
The Pens can finish 2nd in the conference if:
- The Pens win their remaining games.
- The Devils lose tonight to the Senators in regulation.
- The Pens win their remaining games, beating Ottawa in regulation.
We'll likely see Marc-Andre Fleury in net tonight for the Pens against Ryan Miller for the Sabres. Miller is looking to set the team record for wins. The Pens are 2-0 against Miller this year (Biron was in goal when the Sabres won early in the season).
Buffalo has a virtual lock on the #1 seed in the Eastern Conference. They have a 5 point lead on both Jersey and Ottawa with a game in hand. The Pens, as detailed above, are struggling for either the 2 or 4 seed. They can fall no lower than 5.

This is easily one of my favorite blogs to link to. There's always a game preview up (today is no exception), and it's always well written.
Tonight's game will be fun. That's all we know for sure. I'd love to say the Pens will be able to take this one, but I'm a little bit nervous about it. I'm hoping for two points so they can keep their chances of the 2nd or 4th spot alive.
Let's Go Pens!
