Here's the good news:
The Sens aren't in the playoff race.
The Pens are tied for 5th with Montreal. Each have 80 points.
Here's the not-so-good news:
The Habs have a game in hand on the Pens.
The Panthers are in the 9th spot with 78 points.
The Pens have to keep earning points. Specifically, they need TWO points. Finding a way to close out these games when they have a lead in the third is critical. They just don't have that down yet.
