Penguins Game Day 77 - vs. Philadelphia Flyers

Philadelphia Flyers

7:00 p.m., CONSOL Energy Center, Pittsburgh, PA

Not much you need to say about this game. It's Pens and Flyers with a shot at the top spot in the Atlantic on the line.

Here is what it looks like:


Sure, the Penguins are going to lose out on a tie breaker and the Flyers still have a game in hand, but holy hell, who thinks they are going to be in this position without your top two offensive weapons and also field a glorified AHL line up for most of that run.

For those interested the magic number for the Flyers to win the Atlantic is 10 points. That factors in that the Penguins will lose out on the tie breaker if they end up tied with Philly.

Have to play this:



And this.
