Detroit managed to tie the game with only 1:10 remaining on the clock. Overtime turned into a shoot out and the Penguins were given the win. In the NHL a team that loses via shoot out is awarded 1 point. That point was enough to clinch a Wild Card spot. Columbus also won their game last night so they will be taking the East’s second Wild Card spot.
It’s very likely that Detroit will be facing Pittsburgh in the first round of the playoffs, so this will probably be the last time Detroit fans are celebrating a loss to the Penguins.
