The Penguins turbulent season is nearly over and Penguins fans decided to honor a tradition as their team defeated the Washington Capitals 4-1 on Thursday night. They decided to spill out onto the street and stand on the National Portrait Gallery while chanting "Let's Go Pens."

Penguins fans have something to cheer about as the team has recently rallied and has made a push for a playoff spot which is now been a logjam for several teams vying for that second wild card spot.

After the sale of Jake Guentzel to the Carolina Hurricanes many felt the team was ready to hang it up for the year and head into the summer. But newly acquired Michael bunting along with other players has found his scoring touch with Evgeni Malkin as he has gone with four goals and 10 points in 15 games. The Hockey News

As it stands with two weeks left to go in the season, the Islanders, Flyers, capitals, Penguins and the Sabres are all within striking distance of the third position in the metro and the second wild card spot. It's becoming clear that no team has taken the reins and try to force separation between them all to lock down that final spot.

As the Rangers continue to sit as the best team in the East, one of those opponents will be their first-round matchup and it will be fascinating on who that team will be. Time will tell and the Rangers will continue to wait.
