Yeah, I want to talk about PLAYOFFS!
The Peerless got me thinking...If 92 points is considered the magic number of points needed to guarantee a playoff spot, and it seems like it will be, how much does Pittsburgh need after this "slow start" that has so disappointed the faithful?
Through 19 games the Penguins have captured 17 points. That's obviously under .500, since technically they could have 38 possible points. This means they're over 4 points (2 wins) off of the pace to this point.
So basically the Penguins have to play to get 75 points in the last 63 games. A goal that is attainable given the talent on the roster, but they're going to need to improved performances out of every player not named Sidney Crosby or Evgeni Malkin.
