April has in a sense become the time for the Battle of Pennsylvania to take center stage.
The Philadelphia Flyers (39-25-13) will meet their cross-state rivals twice in the final week of the season, and each holds incredibly high stakes.
The Pittsburgh Penguins (45-25-8) locked in their spot in the Stanley Cup Playoffs on Saturday with a dominant 5-0 win over the Islanders. They come in riding a similar hot streak to when the Flyers last saw them, with wins in their last five games and 10 of their last 11 games.
Faceoff between the Flyers and Penguins is set for 5 p.m.
