The Penguins will begin their quest for the third straight Stanley Cup title on Wednesday against the Philadelphia Flyers. That's right, I didn't stutter. Colorado tied with Arizona with the youngest roster at 25.8 years old.
It is the Stanley Cup Playoffs after all and anything is possible.
One of the best things about the league is the parity involved.
Vegas Golden Knights vs. Los Angeles Kings - The most successful inaugural season in any sport has Vegas not only in the playoffs, but with home ice advantage. Colorado is in the playoffs for just the second time in the past eight seasons. Just a year ago, the Western Conference points-leading Chicago Blackhawks not only lost to the 41-win Nashville Predators, but were swept. The Caps and the Blue Jackets each scored 12 goals in the season series, but the Caps won the series 3-1.
Playoff series in back-to-back years made the Penguins and Washington dislike each other plenty, and they'd meet again in the second round if they advance this year. This is a really good Philly team and we know all about them, they know all about us and the rivalry here and all that.
Will you bet on a favorite this year?
The MTS Centre in Winnipeg will be absolutely bananas as the city will be experiencing just its third playoffgame since the franchise's reboot in 2011. Save percentage? Nope. Pittsburgh's record during an occasionally uneven regular season for the two-time defending Stanley Cupchampions? Of all the unlikely scenarios for this team this season, playoffs had to be at the top of the list. Sidney Crosby put together yet another brilliant season.
This matchup has all the makings of a seven-game series.
What also hurts San Jose here is the loss of Joe Thornton earlier in the season.

Tampa Bay Lightning vs. The Lightning lost their three regular-season meetings with the Devils.
Yzerman added offense, defense and leadership to an already elite team by acquiring New York Rangers captain Ryan McDonagh and forward J.T. Miller in one of the final trades completed. Finally, at 2:35 a.m., the game was over.
New Jersey is anchored by Taylor Hall, a contender for the Hart Trophy after putting up a career-high 39 goals and 54 assists for 93 points. This team shouldn't scare the Devils much. It will be tight, but the Lightning should pull through.
Join the Capitals in welcoming Yardhouse to the Chinatown neighborhood in Washington, D.C., on Thursday, April 19, during a Game 4 viewing party from 7-10 p.m. If he struggles, the highly skilled Leafs forwards - Auston Matthews, Mitch Marner, etc. - will need to have a tremendous series, and they're certainly capable of that.
The Bruins, meanwhile, have 50 wins with one game left to play. The Flyers pulled off the upset thanks in part to a meltdown by Pittsburgh. It took years for both of these teams to reach their full potential and should be the marquee match-up in the first round.
Alex Ovechkin can still control any game on any given night despite becoming an elder statesman of the league at 32. Whereas Pittsburgh boasts the NHL's top power-play unit, the Flyers have been near the bottom of the league when it comes to penalty killing. The auction for the remaining items will close at the end of the 2nd intermission during Game 2 on April 15.

Pittsburgh won the first two matchups in 2008 and '09, while the Flyers exacted their revenge in 2012 in what turned out to be arguably the most freaky series in franchise history.
After undergoing core-muscle surgery and missing almost two months, Flyers goaltender Brian Elliott played two regular-season games last week and tried to shake off the rust. "They go from making it very far in the playoffs last year and losing to Pittsburgh right before the finals, to being one of the worst teams in the league so it's pretty disappointing", fourth-year University of ME soccer player Kendra Ridley said.
