Idle Penguins clinch playoff berth in East

The Pittsburgh Penguins clinched a berth in the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs on Sunday night when the New Jersey Devils lost to the Buffalo Sabres in a shootout.

The Penguins (29-10-0) lead the Eastern Conference by three points over the Montreal Canadiens.

Pittsburgh won 15 games in a row from March 2 to March 30, the first perfect month of at least 10 games in League history.

The Penguins did not play Sunday and are back on the ice Tuesday at the Carolina Hurricanes.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
