Guentzel scores four as Penguins eliminate Flyers | TSN
A bit of a wild one yesterday in Philly as the Penguins eliminated the Flyers thanks to an 8-5 win. At one point in the game Pittsburgh was down 4-3 and then Jake Genteel happened. He scored four consecutive goals and the rest was history.
Also, credit to Sean Couturier for scoring a hat trick and playing the last two games with a torn MCL.
BREAKING DOWN JETS VS. PREDATORS WITH HOCKEY CENTRAL PANEL | Sportsnet
Is anyone else really excited for the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs?
We already know that we’re getting Jets/Predators and Sharks/Golden Knights out West. In the East, it’s very likely we’ll see Bruins/Lightning and Penguins/Capitals. Those four match ups should produce some damn good hockey.
