The 2018 Stanley Cup playoffs will have NHLfans at the edge of their seats as ice hockey fans know that the playoffs can cause major upsets.
Tomorrow night, the NHL Playoffs will be underway. Those two are the only seasoned players (more than 60 playoff games) who have a better points-per-game average than Claude Giroux's (0.98). "The book's going to be just fine, even though we are going to take a hit if they hoist the cup and have a parade down the Las Vegas Strip".
How They Lose: Despite Letang's return to full strength, the Penguins have been weak defensively, ranking in the bottom third of the league in goals against. It's not fun going into (last) summer, and everybody's talking about the PittsburghPenguinswinning their second Stanley Cup in a row. The two first-round foes never met in the National Hockey League playoffs when Minnesota had the North Stars (now in Dallas) or Winnipeg had the original Jets (now in Arizona). "You have to get better with each game regardless of the score". 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.
Marc-Andre Fleury had 30 saves to lead Vegas to a victory over visiting Los Angeles in the opening game of their best-of-seven Western Conference first-round series. However, in reality, I've accepted that they'll get to the second round and lose. There were 46 fights in the 1978 postseason alone and an incredible 85 in the 1988 playoffs. If Toronto doesn't get solid play from their defense and goalie Frederik Andersen, then it may be a short playoff for them.
In the Penguins' way to start things off are the Philadelphia Flyers, who clinched a playoff berth on the final day of the regular season. In the playoffs is where he really shines though. With Holtby not starting, I would expect Panarin, Atkinson, Jones, Bobrovsky and Co.to take advantage of that and come away with the series win which will make the Capitals regret not starting Holtby tonight. Having star center Nathan MacKinnon leading the way, and a very balanced offensive and defensive corps might allow this series to go the distance. That goal came on a gorgeous mid-air swat by Crosby, who is just completely unfair when it comes to hand-eye coordination. But, just as Crosby and the Penguins bring out the emotions in Flyersfans, they also get under the skin of the players. "I just think it's the most physical finale in any of the sports that I watch". "There's always a heightened emotion associated with the games". The guess here is that, by the end, Konecny is back with the two bigger guns, and the Flyers manage to keep pace with the Penguins for long stretches.
