Pay up, Megan: Penguins loss results in chicken soup bath NHL Eastern Conference final preview

Tampa Bay won the first two series.

For the first time in 10 playoff runs in the Alex Ovechkin era, the Washington Capitals have finally made it out of the second round.

"I don't know if that's an excuse", he said. "He's a great example for young kids and someone to look up to". The first-year team will play the Winnipeg Jets, who will be searching for their first trip to the Stanley Cup Finals.

The Eastern Conference Finals will feature the Atlantic Division champion Tampa Bay Lightning taking on the Metropolitan Division champion Washington Capitals. It's a full turnover from the final four teams a year ago: Pittsburgh, Ottawa, Nashville and Anaheim.

"It's like playing an extra season", he said. They don't care about the money in the KHL, they want to be in the best league and play against the best. It wasn't. The Bolts disposed of the Bruins, rather easily, in five games after spotting them Game 1.

With the Winnipeg Jets beating the Nashville Predators in Game 7 on Thursday, May 10, the conference finals of the Stanley Cup Playoffs 2018 are finally set. "He's a good player, and he's been generally a pretty good player in the playoffs, so I'm hoping past experience and playoff excitement will push him forward when he gets the call".

"We are going to need to rely on our depth as well and stay disciplined". The Lightning beat one of the best teams in the National Hockey League, the Boston Bruins, in five games. "That will be one of the keys for us". In past years, the Capitals haven't been able to get big goals when they've needed them.

"That has to be in our mind and we have to play as a group, not play individually".

"They're all good stories", Capitals coach Barry Trotz said.

Backstrom appeared to injure his hand while blocking a shot in the first period of Washington's Game 5 victory over the Penguins on Saturday.

Wilson will be back off a three-game suspension, and with Backstrom and Burakovsky potentially close, the Capitals could have their full lineup soon.

"So I think we're just playing on the road. It just creates a better vibe".

It will be the Washington Capitals versus the Tampa Bay Lightning in the east and the Las Vegas Knights versus the Winnipeg Jets in the west.

The Lightning also lead the league in recovering pucks after taking a shot with 28.4 per 60 minutes at 5-vs-5, which allows them to get a lot of second-chance opportunities and extends their zone time on exhausted defences.

"We've been here in this situation before", Stamkos said.
