2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs: Complete first round schedule and results

2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs: Complete first round schedule and results

And another game in which their defense was embarrassed. (They had been swept in their previous two playoff series.) The Jets got goals from Mark Scheifele, Patrik Laine and Joe Morrow - all three scoring their first career playoff goals. You can't win games if you can't score goals, but hey "defense wins championships", right? 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. The playoffs and seeds are determined after each team plays 82 games a season. "Obviously, there's some anger in here". Trust me. You may not know it yet, but you are going to love it.

Time to fire up the Zambonis and pull out the rally towels, playoff hockey is upon us.

"Since we launched our live TV package, we've seen live sports drive a very large part of our growth, so we are especially excited to team up with the National Hockey League to celebrate the 2018 Stanley Cup play-offs", added Patrizio Spagnoletto, head of media and subscriber growth at Hulu. He missed 25 games with a lower-body injury before returning to the starting lineup to play the final two games of the regular season.

It was the 11th hat trick allowed by the Flyers in their playoff history, and it was the third time in Crosby's Hall of Fame career that he had scored three goals in a playoff game. The Penguins killed off the penalty and maintained their five-goal lead. The Pens took the season series, winning all four games with the Flyers earning points in two of the contests... Penguins goalie Matt Murray posted his third-straight playoff shut, which was last done by Ilya Bryzgalov (May 3-7, 2006). Las Vegas has been fired up since the start of the regular season and they really haven't slowed down since then.

But it still leaves Hakstol with a big decision for Friday's game.

With the Penguins on a power play, Guentzel got behind Radko Gudas (nine hits) and, from the doorstep, knocked in Derick Brassard's ideal feed to make it 4-0 with 12:10 left in the second.

Mzrazek wasn't without blemish, as Crosby beat twice to up Pittsburgh's big night to a nice even touchdown and 7-0 advantage (and the impressive hat trick).

On another, Crosby scored on a no-look mid-air swat that is just one of those things that happens when Sidney Crosby is on the ice.

What shouldn't be lost in the first two goals by Bryan Rust and Carl Hagelin was how the puck went the Penguins way. That concludes a run for the expansion-year Knights that includes a 4-2 victory over the Los Angeles Kings in the first round and a 4-3 quarterfinal victory over the San Jose Sharks, whom the simulation says prevail 4-2 over Anaheim.

Earlier in the period, the Flyers almost tied the score at 1-1, but an all-alone Scott Laughton couldn't finish a golden opportunity in front.

It would be unfair to pin all of the blame for the Game 1 loss on goalies Brian Elliott and Petr Mrazek because the Flyers ... well ... they weren't good.

The Flyers scuffled through most of the first, going 0-for-2 on the power play while Elliott looked quite shaky in net. Instead, those players who are on teams that didn't make it will be just like all of us, watching the playoffs from their couches.
