Pittsburgh Penguins (47-26-8, 102 pts) at Philadelphia Flyers (41-29-11, 93 pts)
Today is the end of the regular season. It's an exciting day, because the Pens have a chance at the top seed. It's also exciting anytime they play the Flyers.
If the Pens win the game today, they'll face the Flyers in the first round. If they lose, they'll face the Senators in the first round. Doesn't get any more simple than that.
For the Flyers part, they have to be hoping they can get a win today. If they win, they get to face the Caps, instead of the Pens. If I'm a Flyer, I'd much rather take on the Caps.
Any way you look at it, today's game is big. Everyone is ready to play, including Gary Roberts. It's a warmup for the playoffs. Here's the song (and get used to it if the Pens win today):
Let's Go Pens!
