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

I've never seen anything like that. The great thing is I don't know how many times guys bailed me out where they had to score to keep it alive and they did every time. It was amazing. It's not the way we draw it up, to go 20 rounds here, but obviously it's a big win.
