Game 7 of Remaining 29: New York Rangers at Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh Penguins: 33-21-5 (71 points)

6th in the Eastern Conference

VS.

  New York Rangers: 38-14-5 (81 points)

1st in the Eastern Conference

This is Pittsburgh’s biggest game to date of the season. They are coming off one of their worst games of the season, a 6-2 trouncing by Buffalo. A win for the Pens will take two away from New York and bring the Pens one step closer to the top of the Atlantic Division. A Pens win, a Philadelphia loss and a New Jersey loss will put Pittsburgh squarely in 4th place in the Eastern Conference. That would also give Pittsburgh the second most points in the Eastern Division (73), second to only the Rangers. Although the Rangers have never lost in the Consol Energy Center, I believe this is the night. My pick: Pens WIN.

My final 29 prediction record- 1-5
