Previously, we queried whether the Pens would be able to pull out the Atlantic division and this was your response:
Will the Penguins win the Atlantic Division?
- No. Injuries are taking a toll. (53%, 49 Votes)
- Yes, but just by a hair. (24%, 22 Votes)
- You know who sucks? The Islanders. (18%, 17 Votes)
- Absolutely! We will skate right past the Flyers. (5%, 5 Votes)
Total Voters: 93
Unfortunately, the top vote getter is the most likely scenario as the scorching hot Flyers now have an 8 point lead in the division are currently sitting atop the conference as well. Certainly, the injuries to the Pens do not help, but it’s hard to deny how well the Flyers are playing right now after picking up 15 points in their last 10 games. But, do not fret: the Pens are far from rolling over. Shero is making moves and recently acquired Kovalev, Neal, and Niskanen. The Pens may not win the division, but they will be in playoffs (and will hopefully be a little healthier by then).
Now, onto more pressing matters, March basketball! Despite a heartbreaker against St. John’s, Pitt is ranked nationally at 4 with a record of 24-3 (Duke, Ohio State, and Kansas all dropped 2). Three games remain until the Big East Championship begins on March 8th. We wonder: can Pitt hit #1 by the time the NCAA Tournament rolls around?
Will Pitt get the #1 overall seed in the NCAA Tournament
- Probably not, but they are still solidly a 1 seed. (42%, 36 Votes)
- Won't even get a 1 seed, because we are going to get screwed over by ESPN's love of Duke and Texas. (26%, 22 Votes)
- Absolutely, their body of work is too impressive. (25%, 21 Votes)
- Spring Training started, who cares about basketball? (7%, 6 Votes)
