Flyers vs. Penguins 2018

Last spring, they drilled Ottawa 7-0 in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals to go up 3-2 in the series only to lose Game 6 two days later.

Sidney Crosby scored the last three goals and Matt Murray stopped 24 shots and the Pens crushed the Flyers, 7-0 in Pittsburgh.

The Philadelphia Flyers were absolutely run out of the building in Game 1 of their opening round playoff series with the Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesday night. "That usually means you've got to be quicker and execute a little bit better". Malkin drew a hooking penalty to negate a Pittsburgh power play, and when he emerged from the penalty box, he whizzed past three Flyers in one sequence, darting by Jakub Voracek, slipping past Claude Giroux and then fending off Shayne Gostisbehere before flicking a backhand past Elliott to put the Penguins up 3-0 before the series was 15 minutes old. "It's been working for us pretty well of late, and I think we're just going to chalk that one up as a bad one for us and we move on to Game 2 and prepare accordingly". The Flyers penalty kill was 29th in the National Hockey League (75.8 percent). Even with star player Steven Stamkos injured, the Lightning are still really good offensively with Nikita Kucherov who got 100 points during the regular season, as well as J.T. Miller, Brayden Point, Tyler Johnson and others.

"They did an outstanding job", Hakstol said of the Penguins. "You have holes in your game, and that team is going to drive a truck through them".

Flyers are 0-4 in their last 4 games following a loss of 3 or more goals and over is 10-1 in Flyers last 11 vs.

From the Metropolitan Division we have our usual players, as the Washington Capitals and Pittsburgh Penguins are likely set up for yet another second round matchup. Elliott, or back up Petr Mrazek, who relieved Elliott in the second period, need to make some timely stops.

It's no grand revelation, but the Penguins can put the puck in the net.

Brian Elliott has been pretty dependable all year, but he hasn't looked like himself in three starts since returning from a core muscle injury that sidelined the goalie for almost two months.

For Elliott, surgery was a first-time event that took him out of the lineup for seven weeks.

The Flyers have been a hot mess between the pipes.

Irma - a Category 5 storm, the strongest designation, wrecked havoc on Caribbean islands; Barbuda was nearly completely destroyed. When it hit Puerto Rico, it was still a Category 4, and the strongest storm to hit the USA territory since 1928.

But Neuvirth says he still has to get up to speed to play.

"We had holes to fill this year and we filled them with guys that aren't as high-profile, but are just steady, and provided the things we needed for our team", Capitals GM Brian MacLellan said.

Flyers goalie Brian Elliott didn't get much help from his defense, but his showing in the opening period of the series certainly left a lot to be desired for Philly fans.

Meanwhile, many Penguins said that their power play was ineffective - it went 1 for 4 - and that it will get better in Game 2. Pittsburgh has scored five goals or more in each of the five games against the Flyers this season.

A dozen Penguins have scored, with Zach Aston-Reese and Riley Sheahan the only forwards not to score against the Flyers. However, although they have been successful, they will be challenged in the first round when they face off against a Los Angeles Kings team that counters all their strengths. Columbus will need the other players on its team to step up and score goals if they want to advance. They look even better this year, and seem to have everything it takes - scoring, defence, goaltending - to go all the way. Should I be planning on celebrating finishing my finals by going to see the Ducks? And there were too many times the Penguins were all alone in front. To be fair, one of those shots landed on the back of Elliott's shoulder. With the way their goalies have played against the Penguins, maybe the Flyers' best bet in net isn't in seeing the puck but having some blind luck.
