Both the Philadelphia Flyers and two-time defending Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins hate each other.

The newest team in the National Hockey League has become the most exciting team in the Western Conference. Letestu is in his second stint with the team and has reached a point where he comfortably fits in on the fourth line in a shutdown forward type of role.

Of the 22 goalies who played over 50 games this season, Holtby ranks 18th in GAA, which would rank him behind Henrik Lundqvist, Jimmy Howard and Jacob Markstrom.

This might not be as easy as a series as it looks on paper considering the Lightning have the league's best offense. This matchup is pretty close, as the Kings won the season series 3 games to 2 games; out scoring the Golden Knights 14-12, which shows that their offensive abilities are fairly equal. All with teams ready to answer the bell and answer the question of whether they deserve to move on or go home early. Jarnkrok had 16 goals and 19 assists for 35 points in 68 games with Nashville, which opens against Colorado. However, that's really all the attacking prowess the Devils have as the team's second-leading scorer is 41 points behind Hall. Kucherov, Stamkos, Hedman, and the rest of this Tampa team is just going to be too much for a relatively inexperienced team to handle.

The Lightning have come back down to earth since they're insane hot start to the season, but despite the normal regression everyone expected, they finished atop the Eastern Conference. Game 4 - Lightning at Devils, Wednesday, April 18, 7:30 p.m. Boston will host Toronto. All of whom are 21 years old or younger and recorded at least 60 points on the season.

Alex Ovechkin can still control any game on any given night despite becoming an elder statesman of the league at 32. While his production has slightly faded since his 35 point season with Edmonton past year, his combined 23 points between Edmonton and Columbus are decent for a bottom line player.

The Blue Jackets also have the second best goals against per game in the Eastern Conference.

It also helps that Washington is playing its best hockey of the season at the flawless time, collecting wins in 12 of their final 15 games. He's line is never on the ice when the opposing team scores, so it's going to be interesting to see how Matthews and company find a way to provide the offence.
