Penguins nab home ice after Rangers’ 4-3 win in Philly

What seemed unfathomable not even two months ago is now a reality.  Not only did the Penguins make the playoffs when it was looking quite likely they may not, but now they’ve got home-ice advantage, for at least one round anyway.

The Rangers scored two third-period goals in Philly tonight for a 4-3 win over the Flyers, giving the Penguins home-ice advantage in their first-round playoff matchup against Philadelphia.

Give the Rangers a ton of credit, they had absolutely nothing to gain in today’s game.  But they played one helluva intense game, surely playing in Philly didn’t hurt that intensity.

The playoff schedules will be released tonight.
