Whoever said this game doesn’t matter forgot to tell Penguins like Chuck Kobasew and Tanner Glass.

The Penguins took care of more than just the Detroit Red Wings Wednesday night, they also may have avoided a potentially worrisome first round playoff matchup with the club. By defeating the storied franchise 4-3 in a shootout, Pittsburgh helped their chances of securing a opening post-season series against the Columbus Blue Jackets this Spring.

Sporting a perfect regular season record against the Buckeye state's best, a series against Columbus would work nicely for the Penguins.

The play of Penguins captain Sidney Crosby has a tremendous impact on every game the team plays. Whatever success the Penguins have in the Stanley Cup Playoffs will depend largely on the opposition’s ability to contain No. 87. But he is not doing it alone.

Here are four other Penguins whose postseason play will be crucial in determining how deep the Penguins can advance in the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Chris Kunitz scored the only goal as the Carolina Hurricanes dumped the Penguins 4-1 at CONSOL Energy Center Tuesday night.

Sidney Crosby scored his 100th point of the season when he assisted on Kunitz’s goal, but that was all there was to smile about for the home team.

Sidney Crosby scored a pair of third-period goals and Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 25 shots to lead the Penguins over the defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks 4-1 Sunday night at CONSOL Energy Center.

Crosby's two goals came in the final five minutes in a physical battle between two injury-riddled teams that saw the Blackhawks take another hit, in addition to their third consecutive loss.

The Penguins will not win the Stanley Cup this year. That is not opinion or overreaction. It is, according to the numbers, fact. Both the 2013 Chicago Blackhawks and 2012 Los Angeles Kings faired far better in the final stretch of the season than the Penguins are this year.

Statistically, at least, Pittsburgh stands little chance to win their fourth championship.
