Lets win the next two games and clinch the number one seed in the east.
That's just how the scheduling works. The league had the Penguins play a lot of games early in the season. For the last few weeks the team has seen more off days. I would consider that a benefit. The injured players can rest/heal and practice. I'd rather have it where we have more days off now than play more games and become fatigued by the time the playoffs start, because that's when it counts.
