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

This is a big year for us in a lot of ways. You can see Garth and management really trying to find that solution to get us into the playoffs and consistently have that. The pressure is great. You have to enjoy it. It just means there's a great opportunity ahead of you.

— Islanders captain John Tavares
