The Philadelphia Flyers are going to the 2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

With a 5-0 win over the Rangers in Game 82 at the Wells Fargo Center on Saturday afternoon, the Flyers have clinched the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. The seven other seeds have already been set.

The Flyers concluded the regular season with a 42-26-14 record, overcoming a 10-game losing streak and injuries to goaltenders Brian Elliott and Michal Neuvirth in the process.

The Flyers return to the postseason for the first time since 2015-16 when they were defeated by the Washington Capitals in a six-game first-round series.

The Flyers currently sit third in the Metropolitan Division and would face the Pittsburgh Penguins in the first round if the postseason were to begin right now. Their final seeding will depend on the remaining games in the Eastern Conference on Saturday evening.

The Playoffs begin on Wednesday, April 11th.

The first-round schedule will be released in the coming days.
