Penguins clinch playoff berth

Penguins/NHL Videos

The Penguins clinched a spot in the Stanley Cup playoffs on Sunday night when the New Jersey Devils fell in a shootout against the Buffalo Sabres.

A victory in Carolina on Tuesday might be enough to clinch the Penguins their first divisional title since 2008.

The Penguins are the first team in the Eastern Conference to clinch a playoff spot. A 15-game winning streak in March propelled the Penguins to the top of the conference.

The Chicago Blackhawks and the Penguins clinched a playoff berth Sunday.

The Penguins have qualified for the playoffs in seven consecutive seasons.
