Penguins Clinch Playoff Berth

Team

-Playoff hockey will return to the city of Pittsburgh for a fifth consecutive season. The Penguins simply needed the Carolina Hurricanes to lose to the Tampa Bay Lightning today and that is exactly what happened. The Lightning defeated the Hurricanes 4-2. After a crazy season without Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin for a long period of time, it is incredible that Pittsburgh already has punched their ticket into the playoffs. The first playoff game at the Consol Energy Center will take place in the building’s inaugural season.
