NHL.com
The Phoenix Coyotes didn't even have to wait for their much-anticipated home game Saturday night against the Colorado Avalanche to clinch their first Stanley Cup Playoff berth since 2002.

It happened Saturday afternoon as a result of the Calgary Flames' 5-0 loss to the Boston Bruins.
 
The Coyotes (46-23-6, 98 points) have already set Coyotes/Winnipeg Jets franchise records for most wins and points in a single season and entered play on Saturday in fourth place in the Western Conference standings.  The Coyotes will host the Colorado Avalanche in front of a sellout crowd at Jobing.com Arena on Saturday night.
