Obviously, this is just the first game of the playoffs but, man, there's not much to feel good about if you're a Philadelphia fan.

"It's the playoffs, we're down one game, we need to show up for the next game", Flyers' center Sean Couturier said. That included four assists in four games against the Penguins, but he's looking for even more in the postseason. That was the last time Philadelphia advanced past the first round in the Stanley Cup playoffs. So it's great to see them go in. 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. With the playoffs set to be underway today, here are some predictions that I have for the 2018 #Nhl Playoffs.

Flyers captain Claude Giroux, who had 102 points during the regular season, was highly disappointed after Game 1, when he was minus-4 for the first time this season. The Kings will be without defenseman Drew Doughty for Game 2, suspended by the National Hockey League for an illegal check to the head of Vegas forward William Carrier. Yes, it's only one game, but in a playoff series, you don't have the luxury of waiting to see if things will turn around.Hakstol needs to react. The NHL's divisional playoff format was brought back specifically to ignite old rivalries and create new ones, which has been a successful venture even if hate looks different than it did in the days of the "Broad Street Bullies". With Holtby not starting, I would expect Panarin, Atkinson, Jones, Bobrovsky and take advantage of that and come away with the series win which will make the Capitals regret not starting Holtby tonight.

The other headline opening series in the West features the surprise of the season, the Vegas Golden Knights.

Toronto is a fun, young team, but their goaltending has been inconsistent this year and there are question marks among their defensive core. They wanted to make sure that those were the matchups in the playoffs.

In the Eastern Conference, the Lightning should be able to beat the Devils in four games as well.

Look, the Flyers probably can't play much worse and the Penguins can't play much better.

"Right now my first instinct is yeah", Hakstol said.

It was his 63rd career playoff win and also the 11th career playoff shutout for Fleury, who moved into a tie with Curtis Joseph for 12th place for playoff victories by a goaltender. Philadelphia's top unit is undoubtedly unsafe, with Giroux, Voracek, and Gostisbehere landing seventh, ninth, and 10th, respectively, in regular-season power-play points. The Anaheim Ducks and San Jose Sharks post really solid defenses - both ranking in the top 10 in goals allowed - but unimpressive attacks, finishing 19th and 13th respectively in goals scored.

After appearing in just 31 games in Chicago, Kempny played 22 in Washington while securing a role alongside Norris Trophy-candidate John Carlson. Most of the players that the team selected were players that most people haven't heard of.

Kornegay said the bets started to roll in before the Golden Knights even took the ice, and didn't let up as the team continued its unexpected, division-title-winning season, and Golden Knights fans often got the best of the book. Pittsburgh finished second in the Metropolitan Division standings, while Philadelphia finished two points behind in third. "Obviously there are going to be some penalties during the series, but you don't want to give them too many opportunities because the game can swing with one power play for them".

Exhausted of scoring goals like a normal human, this is just the latest display of Crosby's mastery of the arts of hockey. Dating back to the regular season, the Penguins have killed 15 of their last 16 penalties. They were red hot, going 10-1-1 down the stretch. It will be against the Lightning.

The puck drops Wednesday night in three series, and so the NHL's death march to the Stanley Cup begins. Both of them registered eight shutouts in the regular season.
