The NHL Playoffs are quickly approaching, and the Penguins are battling a spot at the Eastern Conference table. Here are three reasons why they will make a playoff run, and three reasons why they won’t.

Why the Penguins WILL make a playoff run:

Tom Kuhnhackl and Trevor Daley each had a goal and an assist and the Penguins moved into second place in the Metropolitan Division with a 6-2 win over the Washington Capitals on Sunday.

PITTSBURGH - Earlier this month when the Pittsburgh Penguins last played the Washington Capitals, the Penguins blew a 2-0 lead when the Capitals turned up the heat.

The Penguins scored three second period goals and cruised to a 4-1 win over the Flyers in a crucial Metropolitan Division showdown Saturday afternoon in Philadelphia.

Trevor Daley, Carl Hagelin and Chris Kunitz scored three consecutive goals in the second period to rally the Penguins from a 1-0 deficit.

Sidney Crosby scored twice and Carl Hagelin had three assists as the Penguins rallied from a 2-0 deficit to beat the Carolina Panthers 4-2 for their fourth straight win.

Rookie goaltender Matt Murray made 31 saves as the Penguins won their fourth in a row.

“We found that level of desperation that we needed,” Crosby said.

Kris Letang scored on a backhander in the shootout and Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 25 shots to lift the ‪‎Penguins‬ over the Islanders 2-1 Tuesday night at CONSOL Energy Center.

PITTSBURGH - Only a week ago the New York Islanders scored a late goal to steal a 2-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Conor Sheary scored a pair of goals and Marc-Andre Fleury had a brilliant opening period to lead the short-handed Penguins over the Rangers 5-3 in Manhattan on Sunday afternoon.

Sheary is not a suitable replacement for Penguins All-Star center Evgeni Malkin, but the rookie did his part filling Geno’s skates on Sunday afternoon at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Kris Letang scored the lone ‪Penguins‬ goal but two power play tallies by the Islanders were the difference as New York beat Pittsburgh 2-1.

The Islanders took advantage of two power play opportunities with goals from John Tavares and Anders Lee, and Jaroslav Halak’s strong performance in net propelled New York to the victory Tuesday...

Evgeni Malkin had two goals, Bryan Rust had three points, Sidney Crosby had a pair of assists and the Penguins beat the Devils 6-1.

Entering the latter of a back-to-back weekend series in New Jersey, the Pittsburgh Penguins (34-23-8) were searching for offense after a lowly Calgary team shut down the Penguins Saturday in a 4-2...

Whenever a hockey team changes coaches mid-season, it’s fair to look at the season in two parts. The beginning of the 2015-16 Pittsburgh Penguins campaign was the end of the Mike Johnston era and the remainder marked the beginning of Mike Sullivan’s tenure as head coach.

For those who follow the team, the change certainly felt significant.

Sidney Crosby and Patric Hornqvist both scored a goal and picked up an assist, but it was not enough for the Penguins to extinguish the Flames Saturday at the Consol Energy Center, losing 4-2.

PITTSBURGH - After a big win Thursday against the Rangers, the Penguins struggled once again to string together multiple wins.
