On East not yet known who will be on 8. place.
Pittsburgh series of poor results led them to the fact that now have to dread the last round. Throughout the season, they played really well and it is incomprehensible that they have entered into a bad shape before the end of the season. Given the good results in the past, still have everything in their hands, but by the end of the championship will have to achieve a minimum of one win and hope that Ottawa will not win in both matches. Pittsburgh after this clash with the Islanders in the last round hosted at Buffalo. This is the worst team in the league and Penguins, no matter how poorly played, should not that game, let yourself surprise. Because they are the matches very important, because victory would virtually ensure playoffs. Ninth Ottawa that has a point less than forthcoming meeting in Pittsburgh has a hard match against Rangers finishers, which, without doubt, in favor of Pittsburgh.
On the other hand, Islanders team is in better situation before the end of the season. By the end of the season they need just one point. Already in the next DEUL have the opportunity to provide the playoffs because visiting near Pittsburgh that lately not convincing act. In the last four games Islanders have a half-hearted performance. After the important victory over Detroit 5: 4, in the forthcoming meeting were defeated by Columbus on hosting. After this defeat, they were met by Buffalo are no major problems overcome. In the last round they played a very interesting match away against Philadelphia.
Home team have much more motive, this is must win game and i take Penguins in this match.
