Santoliquito: Sydney Crosby And The Penguins Embarrass The Flyers

The teams finished with 158 combined penalty minutes that game.

Miller, who is in his 15th season, recently became the second-winningest US -born goaltender in National Hockey League history with 370 all-time wins. The Flyers must find a way to stop the Penguins when down a man and avoid taking needless penalties if they hope to win Game 1. It was way more than that.

The Penguins certainly weren't going into this series resting on their laurels, even though they went 4-0 in those regular-season meetings.

Not much was expected of the Predators a year ago, as the team with the worst record to qualify for the playoffs, and they made it to the Final.

Special teams are never more crucial than in playoffs.

"We've got to play better and play with a little bit more attitude", Giroux said. The puck went flying toward Crosby, who was standing in front of the goal.

Additionally, the Flyers power play was very bad.

Elliott Looks Shaky - Surprise!

Brian Elliott has been pretty dependable all year, but he hasn't looked like himself in three starts since returning from a core muscle injury that sidelined the goalie for almost two months.

Pittsburgh's first goal was a bad rebound from Elliott, he couldn't cut down a deflection that went under his arm on the second goal and let in a stoppable backhand from Evgeni Malkin on the third.

Petr Mrazek relieved Elliott on Wednesday and allowed two goals on 14 shots. Elliott has 24 wins, 20 losses, and seven overtime losses to his credit, and has registered a.906 save percentage and 2.75 goals against average this year.

Judge Denies Cosby Defense Request For Mistrial
During cross-examination, a defence attorney seized on inconsistencies in Dickinson's testimony and what she wrote in the book. Cosby's attorneys are expected to cross-examine Constand, including about the almost $3.4 million settlement she received.

According to oddsmakers at YouWager, the Penguins are a -210 favorite to win on the moneyline.

For quite a while this season, it looked like it might be those two teams in the Stanley Cup finals sometime when the weather gets warmer. Late goals from Milan Lucic and Bergeron tied the score before the end of regulation and turned TD Garden into a cacophony of noise. As for Crosby, he completed the season with 29 goals and 60 assists in 82 games.

The Predators have the depth in every category; goaltending, defence, offence, power play. Claude Giroux and Couturier were minus-4. Shayne Gostisbehere has shaken off his sophomore slump, giving the Flyers a mobile blueline to jump-start the rush. Michael Raffl was a minus-3.

"You guys are talking about sort of all the details and it's just things that we can't be thinking about", Giroux said quickly after an early skate Wednesday. But you can try to discover new ways to take that away from the opposition.

The Flyers just need to improve in some - OK, tons - of areas.

While the Lightning has struggled down the stretch, they will just be too much for the Devils. "They get opportunities. For us, it's a matter of limiting those chances and doing a good job of letting Brian see the puck". The Predators have Mike Fisher, and they're still angry from their loss in the finals past year.

0 — Times Minnesota and Winnipeg have faced each other in the playoffs. They open the playoffs Wednesday as -190 favorites on the Game 1 betting lines and -225 favorites on the series prices against the rival Philadelphia Flyers (+195).

Based on the excitement of the rivalry and abundance of superstars on both sides, this Penguins-Flyers rematch should easily be one of the most entertaining series of the opening round, it just appears Philadelphia will have to battle the misfortune of pulling one of a handful of teams that can match or overpower its offensive abilities. But that game was telling, and if you can't regroup and reach a new level of play, this is going to be a quick series.

Will Game 2 follow the same script?

The Penguins continued their dominance over the Flyers, carrying their momentum from a four-game regular-season sweep into another win in Game 1. The game wasn't even close as the Penguins won by a score of 7-0. The Penguins capitalized on great scoring chances throughout the game. The Flyers didn't have any in the final 40 minutes.
