The NHL announced the Round One schedule in the wee hours Saturday morning as they set the final seeds for the 2022 Stanley Cup playoffs. Pittsburgh Penguins fans will be able to grab a slice of New York pizza or hit Mulberry St. to grab a cannoli (leave the gun) for the Penguins’ battle with the New York Rangers.
The Penguins secured third place in the Metro Division with their 5-3 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Friday at PPG Paints Arena. They relegated arch-rival Washington Capitals to the second wild card and a date with the buzzsaw known as the Florida Panthers.
Round One, Game 1 will be Tuesday at Madison Square Garden. All of the games (unfortunately?) will be broadcast on the league’s national partners.
UPDATE: The Penguins announced the games will also be available on AT&T Sports, “The entirety of Round One will be broadcast locally on AT&T SportsNet Pittsburgh and carried by 105.9 The X on the Penguins Radio Network.”
