NHL: Penguins start Stanley Cup Playoffs hot vs Flyers

By the numbers Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Philadelphia Flyers series preview

Sidney Crosby saw Jakub Voracek's glove on the ice and wasn't going to let his opponent pick it up easily.

And all of that doesn't even mention Pittsburgh goalie Matt Murray, who finished with 24 saves, including a diving glove save in the first period that prevented the Flyers from tying the game.

"For me, I've been here for a long time, this is a team and I'm rooting for them", he said. "If you look at it, it was wild".

That was six years ago. Even though both teams are pretty similar, I am predicting that the city of Nashville, which to hockey fans is called Smashville, will be the ones going insane on the streets in the dark when they win the Stanley Cup and become champions for the 2017-2018 NHL season. With the playoffs being a different playing scenario, Holtby probably is the better option to start over Grubauer even with Holtby's struggles after the all-star break.

Perhaps the most notable new playoff team is the Las Vegas Golden Knights - the first expansion team in 38 years to make the Stanley Cup Playoffs in their inaugural season.

"You can't go out in practice and work on everything". "So I think Nashville quietly, whether it's at the deadline or just before, did some unbelievable things".

The Penguins expect the Flyers to do the same, and to charge back Friday.

Crosby wasn't done, however, adding two more goals in the third period to welcome Philly backup goalie Petr Mrazek to the 2018 playoffs by tapping home a puck on the doorstep at 7:41 and then completing his third career postseason hat trick with a deflection from the slot at 10:42.

Western Conference: From the Central Division, we have Nashville Predators, Winnipeg Jets and Minnesota Wild. "I'm having a lot of fun right now". The past four playoffs have included a total of 39 fights. Not much a goalie can do about that stuff. "Guys were excited and were anxious to get going".

During cross examination, a defence attorney seized on inconsistencies in Dickinson's testimony and what she wrote in the book. She said he then raped her inside a Lake Tahoe-area hotel room in 1982. "Don't call me a liar", Dickinson replied.

The Penguins mostly brushed off the idea of the dominant victory being a statement game that meant anything for the series - or the postseason - other than a win.

Time to Regroup - There's no other way to look at it. Guentzel's power-play goal for a 4-0 lead was a play in which Elliott had just a slight hesitation in covering the far post. Late goals from Milan Lucic and Bergeron tied the score before the end of regulation and turned TD Garden into a cacophony of noise.

Aside from the absurd rate in which both teams found the back of the net, three Penguins players received suspensions for extracurricular activities, then head coach Dan Bylsma was fined $10,000, and Claude Giroux was deemed ready to take over Sidney Crosby's spot as top player in the world. Ha. "I think personnel has changed. I think that'll definitely be a focus here". "There's always a heightened emotion associated with the games".

The Flyers were a bit above average on offense during the regular season as ranked 12th in the league in scoring at 3.04 gpg, while also ranking 17th in shots taken (32.1 spg) and 15th in power play conversions, converting on 20.7% of their chances.

"You never know what can happen", Crosby said. If the player does not play at least one game in the jersey, a pre-order may be cancelled and a full refund will be given.

There is a Newfoundland cod in the Stanley Cup.

"Those things last forever, really", Carlson said. "Obviously there are going to be some penalties during the series, but you don't want to give them too many opportunities because the game can swing with one power play for them".

In four regular-season games against Pittsburgh, Weal had four points. "They wanted those rivalries".

The Devils didn't make the playoffs past year. "It's been great hockey".
