Pens/Sens Battle For Home Ice

from the Pittsburg Post-Gazette,

Maxime Talbot scored with less than 10 seconds left in regulation to give them a 3-2 victory against the Senators at Scotiabank Place and a 3-1 edge in the season series.
That’s significant, because the Penguins and Senators will meet in the opening round of the Stanley Cup playoffs, although the home-ice advantage for that series will not be determined until tomorrow.
The teams have 103 points each—for the Penguins, that’s the second-highest total in franchise history—but Ottawa has an edge in the first tiebreaker, total victories.
Consequently, the Senators can lock up home ice by beating Boston at TD Banknorth Garden; if the Senators lose, however, the Penguins (46-24-11) can earn home ice by defeating the New York Rangers at Mellon Arena.
