I'm not sure how many people really care about tonight's game or even know there is one for that matter but it is really important in the standings.  If you look up at the records of each team you will realize how close these two teams are.  It will be completely different from last night when the Sabres played a team that doesn't have a lot of offensive fire power, the Penguins have a lot of fire power and when they are clicking on all cylinders...watch out.
