That may be the most frightening aspect going forward for the Flyers and the other 14 teams hoping to end Pittsburgh's run at history. "But yeah, you've gotta go to the net this time of the year and that's usually where pucks are". "But Wayne (Simmonds) and Jake and (Sean Couturier). we've had success here". On the other hand, its penalty kill unit is ranked 29th overall and it's successfully killed off 75.9 percent of all opponent power plays.

The Penguins went up 1-0 on Bryan Rust's score 2:38 into the game. For all of their dominance on Wednesday night, it still only counts as one.

The Flyers have won four of their six playoff series, including a six-game triumph over Pittsburgh in the first round in 2012, their last playoff meeting.

The Pittsburgh Penguins have won the last two Stanley Cups, and are trying to become the first team to win three straight titles since the New York Islanders won four consecutive cups from 1980-83. He got yanked at the 9:01 mark of the middle stanza after allowing five goals on 19 shots.

Hakstoll also mentioned the team's play as a reason for Elliott's struggles. The Ducks enter the playoffs as one of the hotter teams in the West, winning eight of their last ten games of the season, but the health of their goaltender John Gibson is a source of concern.

Philadelphia returned to the playoffs this spring thanks in part to its resilience. The two-time Hart Memorial Trophy victor chose to raise his stick and swing it in front of his body, whacking it past Flyers net minder Brian Elliott and into the far side of the net.

He seemed to downplay the game stating, "It's a loss", Elliott said.

"If somebody told me at the beginning of the year that the Knights game would be very comparable to the handle that we see for the National Football League games, I probably would have just died laughing".

"We know it's going to be a tough challenge; they're a good hockey team", Pittsburgh coach Mike Sullivan said.

Another loss would put Philadelphia in a perilous spot going home.

The first round in the Eastern Conference this year already has two old-school rivalries with the Penguins and Flyers meeting in the playoffs for the first time since their epic 2012 showdown, and Boston facing Toronto for the first time since 2013.

Neuvirth was called upon then and responded brilliantly, with a 31-save victory in Game 4 and an even better, 44-save Game 5 shutout win. Good luck with that.

"They did an outstanding job", Hakstol said of the Penguins. The problem is, when a fourth line is creating the best scoring opportunities, you're typically doing very little offensively. If the Jets can do it twice in three days, they'll have firm control against sloppy Minnesota.

And all of that doesn't even mention Pittsburgh goalie Matt Murray, who finished with 24 saves, including a diving glove save in the first period that prevented the Flyers from tying the game. As coaches, sometimes you take it for granted because we've seen it a number of times over the course of a few seasons.

Most believe Elliott is not fully healed from core muscle surgery in February - he has made just three starts since then, including Game 1 - and it has shown. "Like I said before last game, you try to negate what they do well".

Look, the Flyers probably can't play much worse and the Penguins can't play much better. Having a crammed and raucous Bell MTS Place certainly helped. Shea Theodore's goal at 3:23 of the first period stood as the game's only goal as the Golden Knights took a 1-0 win over the Los Angeles Kings in their first-ever postseason game.
