Capitals or Flyers waiting for Penguins, Lightning

Penguins/NHL Videos

Tuesday, April 26, 2011
 

Should the Penguins defeat Tampa Bay in Game 7 Wednesday, one of their two biggest rivals will be waiting for them in the second round.

The winner of the Penguins/Lightning series will take on either the Washington Capitals or Philadelphia Flyers in the second round of the Eastern Conference playoffs.

If the Boston Bruins beat the Montreal Canadiens in Game 7 of that series Wednesday, the winner of the Penguins/Lightning series would play Washington in the second round. Should Montreal win Game 7, the Penguins or Lightning will play Philadelphia.

It is believed the Penguins, should they win Game 7 Wednesday, would open the second round Friday night.
