The Pittsburgh Penguins have worked their way up the standings and sit second in the Metropolitan Division.

If the Pittsburgh Penguins keep their play up, a playoff spot is basically secured for the boys in yellow and black. But who knows where we’ll end up in the standings.

The Eastern Conference is as close as ever amongst playoff teams. A matter of a couple of points separate wild card teams and divisional spots. The Penguins will have to keep up their strong play if they wanna finish with a high seed.

With the instability in the standings right now, I thought it would be fun to take a look at some of the possible match ups that can happen for the Penguins throughout our playoff run. Now take note, I won’t be doing match ups just for the first round, but rather the whole playoffs. So let’s take a look at four of the team’s I would like to see us match up with in the playoffs.
