Stanley Cup Playoffs Roundup: Crosby, Penguins Rout Flyers in Postseason Opener

Their run to the Stanley Cup Final was nothing short of awesome.

Screenshots were taken from games unrelated to the simulation.

If anything, the Flyers can't play that terribly again, but even then that's not saying much. Is THIS the Caps' year? Hulu is also partnering with National Hockey League for the 2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs and Final! The Predators lineup is filled with talent that most teams dream about, consisting of Filip Forsberg, Viktor Arvidsson, and P.K. Subban.

The Predators gave up a first-round draft pick in adding size and versatility to acquire forward Ryan Hartman from Chicago. The goal is one that you definitely will be seeing on the highlight reel over the next few seasons.

"We have to go with the same mindset we did past year", Predators defenseman Ryan Ellis said. Both of these teams were physical all game, with numerous scrums breaking out in front of the net, and the Kings' defense was stout while the Golden Knights' attack was relentless.

"We executed. We capitalized on our chances", Crosby said. "I think there is always areas you need to improve on".

"For me, I've been here for a long time, this is a team and I'm rooting for them", he said. They open with the Kings, which looks to me like another 4-over-1 upset chance - but since I haven't seen more than five minutes of the Golden Knights, I might be totally wrong about that. In the West, Minnesota faces Winnipeg in the first playoff series between the two division rivals, which could heat up fast.

In the final first round matchup, we have teams that are pretty similar.

There's no love lost between the Anaheim Ducks and San Jose Sharks, a pair of Californian teams that are well acquainted with one another.

After appearing in just 31 games in Chicago, Kempny played 22 in Washington while securing a role alongside Norris Trophy-candidate John Carlson.

The Philadelphia Flyers are finding out what Columbus, Washington, Ottawa and Nashville learned previous year, that the Penguins' path to the Stanley Cup goes through your goalie.

If Toronto gets their revenge against Boston, Matthews should be the biggest reason why. The Penguins rolled over the Flyers, 7-0, Wednesday night in the worst playoff loss in Flyers' history.

All-Star Game - By the third period, this looked more like an All-Star Game than a playoff game.

"With one game like that, you don't want to hit the panic button and kind of scramble things up", defenseman Andrew MacDonald said. Meanwhile, the Toronto Maple Leafs are lead by a three-headed monster of youth.

Both teams have incredible depth and veteran stars who are having career years.

"[The Stanley Cup playoffs] are fun to watch", third-year marketing student Cory Brewer said. "The other things, we'll have to do through a little bit of video, a little bit of discussion, and mostly just clearing the mind and getting the focus back on Game 2". But with goaltender Semyon Varlamov questionable for the series due to an injury, they will have to go with Jonathan Bernier, which isn't ideal against a great team like Nashville.

This season, with several strong low-ranked teams, there could be several surprises. The team that led the National Hockey League in points the past two years, the Washington Capitals, lost in the second round of the Eastern Conference playoffs in each. Philadelphia hasn't won a playoff series since it beat the favored Penguins in six sometimes chaotic games in 2012. Sean Couturier (76 points), and Jakub Voracek (85) also had career years, while the top defensive pairing of Ivan Provorov and Shayne Gostisbehere combined for 106 points.

Crosby scored three straight goals, two deflections and a rebound, including a pair in the third period to reinforce the message as the Penguins trounced the Philadelphia Flyers 7-0 at PPG Paints Arena. This part is complicated.
