Penguins clinch playoff spot
The Pens win in Tampa on Tuesday (and the Panther loss in Philly) clinched a playoff spot for the Penguins. This means that the Isles are now assured of a 4th round pick for Bill Guerin (instead of Tampa's 5th round pick, which they would have received had Pittsburgh missed the playoffs.). It will become a third round pick if the Penguins win their first round playoff series and Guerin plays in at least half of the 1st round games.
