Game #70 - at New Jersey Devils

Game 70
Penguins (41-23-5, 87 points) at Devils (41-24-3, 85 points)

Why does it matter?
As far as playoff seeding goes, this the most important game remaining on the schedule. The Pens can earn two points, while keeping Jersey from getting two, by winning in regulation. They could also get the monkey off of their back as far as the Devils go this season.

What has been happening lately?
  • Pens -The Pens have earned at least a point in 10 of the past 11 and they're playing well.
  • Devils - Good, but not great, after following up the win over the Pens with a loss to the Isles. They won their last one, however, at home against the Bruins.
Questions to be answered
  • Very simple - can the Pens beat the Devils?.
  • I'm still looking for a shut out from a Pens goalie. Can they get one? (this question is staying here until they do)
Keys to the game
  • Just one - win the game! Nothing else matters - keep it simple and focus on one goal - two points.
