Flyers vs. Penguins 2018

Flyers vs. Penguins 2018

If Canada wants to back a team that could win the Stanley Cup, the Jets are the way to go. However, Pittsburgh also had the worst road record (17-20-4) among playoff teams in the Eastern Conference. His adversary, Jones, posted his third straight 30 win season and is not far removed from getting the Sharks to the Stanley Cup Final two years ago.

5 - Combined playoff hat tricks for Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby (2) and Evgeni Malkin (2), along with Washington's Alex Ovechkin (1). Given the difficulties that inherently come with an expansion team's inaugural season, it's very rare to see them make the playoffs, let alone win their division.

Pittsburgh has one glaring weakness and that's their defense. "They made plays in tight areas, and we just have to find an answer coming next game". Well, this year they're going to be heading back to the Finals but not against the Penguins.

Flyers center Claude Giroux in his 11th season set career highs in goals (34), points (102) and assists (68), leading the National Hockey League in the latter.

But then came a momentary pause, and Giroux continued. As a result, Brian Elliott will likely open the playoffs as the Flyers' starter. But, there's always that one aspect of each series that many fans and critics will keen on keeping an eye on.

If it was any other team, the Golden Knights would be an easy pick to move on to the next round, but here they are in a matchup with the Kings, a team that knows exactly how to get the job done. The former Vezina Trophy victor can get hot and steal some games for the Capitals.

With the score tied 1-1, Keith Primeau skated up the ice and fired a wrist shot past Penguins goalie Ron Tugnutt with less than eight minutes left in the fifth overtime to win 2-1. All of those are nice, but Ovi has not even been to the finals.

The Tampa Bay Lightning looked poised to be the Stanley Cup champions at midseason, though they cooled in the second half.

Storyline: Which of the Devils D can shut down Nikita Kucherov and Steven Stamkos? The Lightning are a well-balanced team on offense and defense and will be a hard matchup for anyone. That's a fact. But there's having star players and the storyline of seeing what they can do against another team - and their stars - and there's letting star players run wild without much of a challenge. We're going to go after it in Game 1 and hope we can get that.

Vegas is going to finish first in the pacific division this season. said no one in the whole world. Expect more of a game this time around, but the Penguins just have the Flyers' number. If that's the case it will be a tough go for the Bruins. None of those players are over the age of 22.

Toronto is a fun, young team, but their goaltending has been inconsistent this year and there are question marks among their defensive core.

This is my favorite round of the playoffs because all the teams involved will be on my television at some point. The Blue Jackets posses an excellent goaltender with plenty of playoff experience in Sergei Bobrovsky. They do have the best GA/GP at home (2.17) and they can also score some goals (3.29, 11th). "But everybody is dealing with stuff this time of year so there's no excuses in the playoffs". In fact, New Jersey was the worst team in its conference. Is a rivalry still a rivalry in a league that has made a concerted effort against over-the-top hits and where fighting is truly a rare sight? Hall finished the sixth in scoring in the league and scored 41 more points than the next highest scoring player on the roster.

That was Crosby's first of three goals on the night, and he only needed four shots to complete the hat trick. 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.
