The Penguins, who beat Winnipeg 4-2 later on Thursday, will take
on a wildcard team to open the playoffs.
It is the eighth division title for the Penguins, who also have
three Stanley Cups, the last one coming in 2008-09.
Pittsburgh still have a slight chance at claiming the No. 1 seed in
the Eastern Conference after Boston failed to clinch it on Thursday
with a 4-3 overtime loss to Toronto.
The Bruins still have an eight-point lead on Pittsburgh.
