Sidney Crosby secures hat trick in Penguins' Game 1 win over Flyers

Sidney Crosby secures hat trick in Penguins' Game 1 win over Flyers

Snatching up the win in game one was Matt Murray, who stopped all 24 shots that he faced in the game for his 5th career playoff shutout. They missed all 24 shots that they attempted in the game. The defensemen in front of Murray turned Flyers forward Wayne Simmonds into a bystander. Philadelphia's power play went 0 for 4 and didn't even generate a shot.

Exhausted of scoring goals like a normal human, this is just the latest display of Crosby's mastery of the arts of hockey. The Flyers played well down the stretch to get into the playoffs, but they showed in game one that they are just overmatched in this series, especially here at PPG PAINTS Arena.

Crosby continued his dominance of the Flyers with a hat trick on Wednesday night.

"Whether it's 7-0 or 1-0 or double overtime, it's one game", he said.

Hakstoll also mentioned the team's play as a reason for Elliott's struggles. "They made plays in tight areas, and we just have to find an answer coming next game".

Philadelphia returned to the playoffs this spring thanks in part to its resilience.

Marc-Andre Fleury had 30 saves to lead Vegas to a victory over visiting Los Angeles in the opening game of their best-of-seven Western Conference first-round series. "But everybody is dealing with stuff this time of year so there's no excuses in the playoffs". Mrazek wasn't much better, getting beaten by Crosby twice more as Philadelphia's return to the playoffs after a one-year absence started with a thud. "But we're not going to try any harder just because it's Pittsburgh". "We'll do that on game days".

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

The Pittsburgh Penguins made a statement in Game 1 in the 2018 Battle of Pennsylvania.

Twitter users hoping to share their latest thought with the world are being confronted by a "something is technically wrong" page. Twitter's Support handle had tweeted, "Some users may have recently experienced issues accessing Twitter on mobile & web".

Washington Capitals and Nashville Predators enter the postseason with a ton of fanfare once again, but they face hard matchups against divisional foes. Good luck with that.

"Right now my first instinct is yeah", Hakstol said. "That usually means you've got to be quicker and execute a little bit better".

All games can be live-streamed on the NBC Sports App. After the first 10 minutes, those scoring opportunities dissolved quickly as the Penguins were buzzing in the Flyers' zone and Hakstol's team couldn't adjust accordingly. The Wild understand they need to be smarter in their own end. With the win, Vegas became the first team to post a shutout win its playoff debut since 1968, and the fifth in National Hockey League history. When he left the penalty box in the first period, he darted past three Flyers in a single sequence before backhanding the puck by Philadelphia goalie Brian Elliott to put Pittsburgh ahead 3-0. Their best players were better than ours.

The young Jets feel likewise.

"You saw the crowd last night, it was unbelievable", said 22-year-old defenseman Josh Morrissey. "We have a lot of confidence in him".

But in Game 1 against the Penguins, Elliott was chased from the net halfway into the game.

Rust struck initially at 2:38 for a 1-0 lead and Hagelin gave them a 2-0 advantage at 10:07.

The Kings will look to even out the series in Game 2 on Friday.

Doughty appeared to lower his shoulder into Carrier's head, connecting with his jaw, sending the Golden Knights wing to the locker room for the remainder of the game. Well, that offense was a complete no-show as they were blanked in game one by a score of 7-0. "I'm not going to move away for sure from that, but I'm not making any lineup decisions or announcing any lineup decisions [Thursday]".
