*Second 41 games: 22-13-4 = 48 pts (110 GF - 106 GA)

*Note: the second half is based on 39 games. The Pens have two remaining games, so at best you can add two more wins to those totals.

I think the record is a reflection of how this team seems to be getting more sloppy, not less sloppy, as the playoffs draw closer. Both their record and their GF/GA differential show a team that is trending in the opposite direction than what you'd hope heading into the playoffs.
This would've told you all you need to know. Performance always follows the shots on a large scale. This also shows how bad we really are. Bottom 1/4th of the league currently.
