Stanley Cup Playoffs Second Round

Stanley Cup Playoffs First Round Highlights

Watch Washington Capitals vs Pittsburgh Penguins

Is the third time the charm? The Capitals are sure hoping so. Alex Ovechkin and co. are hoping to shake the monkey off their back after losing twice in two years to the Penguins in the second round of the playoffs. Washington is also going into the series having won their division for the third consecutive season. The good news for the Caps is that Braden Holtby seems to have put an end to his struggles and firmly taken hold of the number one goaltending spot. The Penguins have been relying on their big three stars, Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, and Phil Kessel. What may give Caps fans some hope is that they'll be without Malkin for at least Game 1. Will not having Malkin in the lineup shine a bigger light on a sub-optimal defensive group? Will Washington be able to forget about the past two post-season defeats? We're about to find out.

Watch Tampa Bay Lightning vs Boston Bruins

The Bruins were the victors of the lone Game 7 in the first round of the NHL Playoffs. The Bruins have weapons up front. David Pastrnak and Jake Debrusk, alongside Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron, is more than enough firepower to overwhelm most teams. But Tampa Bay may be the deepest team of forwards in the playoffs. Led by Steven Stamkos and Nikita Kucherov, the Bolts have a long list of veterans and rookies who can put the biscuit in the basket. Yanni Gourde and Brayden Point are two budding stars and Ondrej Palat and Tyler Johnson are the young vets who are adding some stability to their forward group. In order to stop the Lightning the Bruins may have to be tighter on defense and Tuukka Rask will need to perform better than he has up to this point.

Watch Nashville Predators vs Winnipeg Jets

Some say that this matchup should be taking place in the Western Conference Final, let alone the Stanley Cup Final were it possible. Physicality, high speed, and scoring will all be on display in this series. Pair that up with two insatiable fan bases and you have a recipe for an all-time great Stanley Cup Playoff series. While there aren't too many flaws in either team's game, the Jets seemed to dispose of the Wild a little easier than the Preds shrugged off the Avalanche. This has given worry to a lot of fans in Nashville that their team had peaked too early. This is a series that looks like it may come down to goaltending.

Watch Vegas Golden Knights vs San Jose Sharks

Both teams got their brooms out for the first round, each sweeping their opponent in four games. The Sharks bring both youth and experience with players like Evander Kane, Logan Couture, Joe Pavelski, and Brent Burns, while the Golden Knights run a fast paced four-line attack. There aren't too many high-profile names on Vegas' roster, but the most experience memeber on their team may be the most important. Marc-Andre Fluery put together an impressive performance through Round 1, posting a .977 save percentage. He'll be facing a team with many more offensive weapons than the Kings in Round 2, but if he can come anywhere close to matching his first round performance, the Golden Knights will have a good chance to move on.
