Penguins Go In As 'Favourites' As 2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs Begin

Penguins Go In As 'Favourites' As 2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs Begin

Hakstol declined to elaborate on his plans Thursday, though he's well aware Elliott's play was not Philadelphia's only issue.

"We had too many holes", Hakstol said. Defensively, the Flyers is yielding 2.9 goals and 75.8 percent penalty kill per game. He got yanked at the 9:01 mark of the middle stanza after allowing five goals on 19 shots.

The eye test: Elliott has not looked close to his old self since he returned from missing almost two months following core-muscle surgery.

"If somebody told me at the beginning of the year that the Knights game would be very comparable to the handle that we see for the National Football League games, I probably would have just died laughing".

The Flyers' Brian Elliott was so lucky. We're talking Flyers goaltending in a playoff series again.

They will take on the Columbus Blue Jackets, and they should beat them easily, as Columbus doesn't have anyone who can match up well enough to stop the "Rocket" Richard Trophy victor, Alex Ovechkin.

"He's pulled through for us all year", said winger Travis Konecny. Pittsburgh gave up 250 goals this year, and the defense appears to have slipped quite a bit from the last two years. But Mrazek was thrown into a cauldron, in an electric opposing arena, against a team whose focus, sense of urgency, and speed the Flyers couldn't come close to matching. Tampa Bay claimed the Atlantic Division title when the Boston Bruins (+550 to win Cup) were upset at home in the season's final game against the Florida Panthers, who missed the playoffs. There was very little time, space.

Four players have reached at least 50 points for the Flyers, they are Giroux (102), Jakub Voracek (85), Sean Couturier (76) and Shayne Gostisbehere (65).

"Playing against teams with high stakes when there's a lot on the line - win or go home - that's how you have rivalries", veteran New Jersey Devils center Brian Boyle said.

As for Neuvirth, he was coming off an injury two years ago while the Washington Capitals built a 3-0 games lead on Mason and the Flyers. The Flyers are 0-5 in the last five meetings with the Penguins.

Pittsburgh blocked 24 shots before the puck even got to the net.

Pittsburgh captain Sidney Crosby led the way with his third career postseason hat trick - a natural hat trick.

"I don't care who is in the net. In general, we need to be better".

Washington Capitals and Nashville Predators enter the postseason with a ton of fanfare once again, but they face hard matchups against divisional foes.

The Flyers, conversely, were hoping to move past the painful loss and even the first-round series before it moves to Philadelphia. "It's just one hiccup, one game". The Ducks enter the playoffs as one of the hotter teams in the West, winning eight of their last ten games of the season, but the health of their goaltender John Gibson is a source of concern.

"I don't know", Crosby said, when asked about his knact for scoring the stylish goals.

Elliott Looks Shaky - Surprise! For all of their dominance on Wednesday night, it still only counts as one. If you don't have a team to watch this postseason, I'd recommend following this series closely. "I think his body of work, especially this year, presented itself. So for us it's just a motivation".

It took Winnipeg almost two decades to win the franchise's first playoff game. However, in reality, I've accepted that they'll get to the second round and lose.

Steven Stamkos may have had an off-year with just 27 goals, but he still one of the most lethal players with the puck. They were on it. "We've got a day here to think about it".
