Penguins Clinch Home Ice
Another shootout win for the Penguins = 2 more points in the standings. As I write, the Flyers-Sabres are tied at 3. If Buffalo can win that in regulation, the Pens just need to win Sunday to get the #2 or #3 seed in the Eastern Conference and win the Atlantic Division.
Either way, the Pens are on fire and will start at home next week.
Here are some bold predictions for their postseason run:
- Pens will get Sidney Crosby back in round 2
- As a result, they will play the Capitals in the Eastern Conference finals (after defeating the Flyers in 7 games and the Sabres in 6)
- Pens vs. Canucks for the Stanley Cup
