The Penguins clinched the East Division Saturday with a 1-0 Win over the Buffalo Sabres, their first Divisional Championship since the 2013-14 Season. Now, the Pens have to play the waiting game. They have to wait for the rest of the East to finish up the Regular Season. The Bruins have to play the Islanders and Capitals one more time.
They also have to wait on the North Division. The Vancouver Canucks have 7 games left on the Season. The Team had a COVID outbreak and missed a few weeks of play, so that’s the long waiting game that Pittsburgh has to make it through. But after Tuesday we should know the results of the East Division.
The Pens have claimed the number one spot with a Division Title and will play who ever finishes in 4th place. 2Nd and 3rd will play each other. Boston finishes play on Tuesday, so we will know the Final Standings then.
