The Pittsburgh Penguins and fans are ready for playoff hockey, even if the NHL has not yet announced the start date of Round One. The Penguins’ opponent is also yet to be determined as the Penguins could finish anywhere from first to third in the East Division, pending their outcome against the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday and the outcomes of the Boston Bruins vs. Washington Capitals next week.
The Penguins are putting tickets for Round One and their first two home games on sale. Those games could be Game 1 and Game 2, or 3 and 4 based on their final seed. If the Penguins win on Saturday, they clinch home-ice for at least the first round.
