The next fews weeks are going to be awesome. Absolutely no user games were played. I'll break down every round of the playoffs and (hopefully) help you win that office playoff bracket. He's a huge reason why our team was able to put ourselves in a position to be in the playoffs. Some teams like the Oilers, Islanders, Stars and others were expected to make the playoffs at the beginning of the season but ended up missing out. Phil Kessel is one of the top offensive threats in the game, and Pittsburgh has a devastating power play.
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). This season has been different for the Caps: they had a lot of roster turnover, Braden Holtby didn't dominate the net, and they did not come out with the best record in the National Hockey League. The Penguins have won series in all kinds of ways over the last two years. Brown and Kopitar turned in four-goal games down the stretch while Jonathan Quick provided timely goaltending in a tight playoff race. But one game you don't panic.
Eastern Conference: From the Atlantic Division, we have Tampa Bay Lightning, Boston Bruins and Toronto Maple Leafs: From the Metropolitan Division, we have Washington Capitals, Pittsburgh Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers. So they basically have a second-liner as their third-liner, managing to upgrade from the very good Nick Bonino.
"It feels like every game he gives us a chance to win", Maatta said. Duncan Keith was the last Spartan to win the Cup as he claimed his third with the Chicago Blackhawks in 2015 while also taking home the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP. This is his 10th visit to the Stanley Cup playoffs.
The Winnipeg Jets finished second in GF/GP and fifth in GA/GP. Eight of those goals have come with Pittsburgh including the six he scored in the Penguins first Cup in 2015-16.
Thursday Evening: Transition day tomorrow; Severe weather possible Saturday morning
Up to 2 1/2 inches of rain are possible , and a flash flood watch has been instituted for the region for Saturday . A wicked late winter storm will be moving through Northcentral Wisconsin over the next three days.
There's even a good chance that National Basketball Association playoff games will include two teams both trying to win at the same time, a nice change from the regular season. The Knights split the season series with Los Angeles. "So, when you get to lift it, it's really worth it". Two points in the standings was the difference in the Penguins having home-ice advantage and it could be the difference-maker in the series. Let's hope they don't let Canada down. Will the Las Vegas Golden Knights continue to shock the world?
But for a team that has never been in the playoffs before, the Kings are not an ideal matchup. They've dominated. They've rallied. How could anyone bet against this Cinderella team? However, this Nashville Predators' team is tested.
The Golden Knights are one of the best stories in National Hockey League history.
But, the Flyers are one of few teams that present a group of superstars potentially capable of matching the Pens' relentless output. "I didn't know if we would be". The timing, placement, and angle of his stick to make that happen with the puck heading directly at him like that is remarkable.
That being said, The Golden Knights have players who have won Stanley Cups, so it's not like they have no experience at all. To be successful in the NHL Playoffs, a team needs a goalie to step up and be "the guy". "I think that'll definitely be a focus here".
Capitol Digest: Senator blasts slow pace of state tax refund mailing
Though the refund amounts vary per individual, the average refund left on the table by IN residents is approximately $1,073. The tax filing deadline is fast approaching, but there's still time to get your paperwork turned in or file an extension.
Puck control is going to be crucial to this series.
"We executed. We capitalized on our chances", Crosby said. "I think there is always areas you need to improve on". Both of these teams have that. "I was awful, I made a lot of bad plays".
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. Most of the players that the team selected were players that most people haven't heard of.
Washington head coach Barry Trotz admitted the decision to start Grubauer wasn't an easy one, but the German is deserving of the honor, per Chase Pyke of WashingtonCaps.com.
What also hurts San Jose here is the loss of Joe Thornton earlier in the season. He, too is getting a reputation as a playoff performer.

The momentum continues to be with Ferrari and Sebastian Vettel as they arrive in Shanghai on the back of wins in Australia and Bahrain .
