Nashville Predators: The road to the Stanley Cup goes through Nashville

NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs Schedule 2018: Dates, TV Channel, Live Stream For First Round

Screenshots were taken from games unrelated to the simulation. Crosby himself made a couple errant passes, one of which allowed the Flyers to generate their best offensive pressure of the game. Is THIS the Caps' year? Bobrovsky hasn't been able to get the Blue Jackets to the second round since coming to The Buckeye State while Holtby finally needs to find a way to get the Capitals to at least the Conference Finals if not the Stanley Cup Finals.

In the Western Conference, the competition seems as tough as ever.

Nashville faces an opponent in the Colorado Avalanche that are similar in a sense to their postseason status in 2017, as they enter as massive underdogs, just like the Predators did against the Chicago Blackhawks. Home ice, many critics say, doesn't still have the same effect in the playoffs as it did in years past. Outside T-Mobile Arena in Toshiba Plaza, fans could get real or fake tattoos of the Golden Knights logo, or get their hair cut with a "V" design, while there was also a concert put on by Logic. And, they have depth unlike any other team. "But I like our chances if we play some good hockey for 60 minutes, maybe even more". Expect the Jets to fly right by. "For us, it's focus on what we've been doing the last two, three months".

San Jose and Anaheim should be a war - the Ducks are getting healthy, and the Sharks got a big boost when they traded for Evander Kane (although they need Joe Thornton back, perhaps) - and the Jets play Minnesota in a series that will be hidden away.

These two teams got together in 2013 and played a spectacular seven-game series. Those of you who remember what channel CNBC is on DirecTV are invited to email me that information.

In the Eastern Conference, some of our staples for the past few years remain, while a few teams that have struggled recently are back in the playoffs: The Philadelphia Flyers, Tampa Bay Lightning, and New Jersey Devils all missed the postseason last season.

If the lines and pairings used in practice Thursday are any indication, the Flyers will stick with the same lineup that suffered the most lopsided Game 1 loss in the franchise's playoff history.

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

Committee Retires Four 2017 Hurricane Names
In the US , seven direct deaths were reported, and an additional 85 indirect deaths occurred, 80 of which were in Florida. But if a hurricane is particularly deadly or costly, its name is retired and is replaced by a different name.

You just can't allow Crosby to do whatever he wants. Maple Leaf Gardens needed to clear patrons by midnight because of a Toronto ordinance in effect, according to the Bruins website.

DefenseIvan Provorov (9) scored a league-high 17 goals by a defenseman this year.

The Penguins are poised to win the Cup for the third straight year, they showed just that in their first action this postseason. 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.

Look, the Penguins boast a ton of star power and are without question a superior team on paper.

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. And the bragging rights, owned by the Penguins right now, will definitely be fresh in the Flyers players and fans minds. 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.

Pittsburgh's biggest advantage is it can spread Crosby, Malkin, and Kessel on three different lines, and have them join forces for one hell of a power play. This part is complicated. "They have a lot of good forwards".

Philadelphia's players have been penalized 3.4 times per game in total this season, 3.6 per game over their past five contests total, and 3.6 per game over their last five road outings.
