The Pittsburgh Penguins are continuing their playoff streak for the 16th consecutive season.

The Penguins will face the Rangers in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs.

Since the 2006-07 season, no NHL team has more playoff victories than the Penguins, according to a release from the team.
