Last night, the Pittsburgh Penguins inadvertently scored an own goal due to a delayed penalty, epitomizing their struggling season. Positioned 7th in their division, they remain just five points shy of a wild card slot. The trade deadline looms, potentially seeing players like Jake Guentzel traded, while Crosby and Malkin stay put. Surprisingly, Arizona is only two points from a wild card.
