The Penguins still are awaiting a Round 2 opponent.

With their 5-2 home victory over the Rangers on Tuesday, the Flyers forced a deciding Game 7 in that first-round series. It will be played at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday night.

The winner faces the Penguins in the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs.

A best-of-seven series will open with Games 1 and 2 at Consol Energy Center, though dates and times are not set. Tickets are available at Ticketmaster outlets and the arena box office.

The Penguins lost four of five regular-season games against the Flyers, including all three at home.

The Penguins and Rangers split four regular-season games. Each team earned a win in a shootout.
