Check out Saturday's scoreboard...
Panthers...7-2 losers to the Devils
Sabres...2-0 losers to the Islanders
Hurricanes...5-3 losers on 4 goals by the Thrashers in the 3rd period
Aside from the Rangers crushing a reeling Avalanche team 6-1, just about everything that could go right for the Penguins did go right for the Penguins.
Tomorrow the Pens face a Dallas Stars team that lost it's 4th in a row on home ice today to the Ducks.
The Pens will have the benefit of a days rest.
This game is the biggest of the season to date.
A win will put the Penguins officially back in the race.
It's a huge test to see if this team really can take advantage of the opportunity they have before them.
Playoff teams do that.
Will the Peguins do that tomorrow?
