The Penguins have a huge home and home set coming up this weekend with the Columbus Blue Jackets. Columbus trails the Penguins by two points in the Eastern Conference playoff race.
Every game right now is important for Pittsburgh. They can't overlook the Florida Panthers tonight. Remember the last time they played?
Florida is more than capable of beating the Penguins if the get caught sleeping. They can't tonight. In fact, the Penguins have a bitch of a schedule the rest of the way.
After the second Columbus game, they play the Bruins and the Capitals.Out of the 17 remaining games, the Penguins play 7 teams that aren't in the playoff picture. They have to win those games. They have to take advantage starting tonight against Florida.
