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

When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.

— Chicago Blackhawks owner Rocky Wirtz on signing Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane to contract extensions
