Sidney Crosby signs messages to Broncos bus survivors

The Pittsburgh Penguins (47-29-6) will begin the defense of their Stanley Cup for the second year in a row on Wednesday when they host the Philadelphia Flyers (42-26-14) as home favorites for Game 1 of their first-round National Hockey League playoff series.

Sidney Crosby played the puck off his left skate for a ideal pass to Jake Guentzel to start a rush that saw it fed to Kris Letang for a shot and Rust rebounding at the top of the left circle for a 1-0 lead at 2:38 for the first goal of the Stanley Cup playoffs. Pittsburgh scored three in the first period.

Matt Murray boasts another postseason shut out (he had two in the Stanley Cup Finals past year giving him three straight in the playoffs) as the Penguins also found themselves dominant in shots - out firing the Flyers 33-23. Game time is 7 p.m.

After two, it was 5-0 and shots were 28-19 in favor of Pittsburgh.

While the Penguins dominated the 2016 and 2017 Stanley Cup playoffs, a three-peat just feels unlikely this year.

"I don't think there's ever been a love lost between Toronto and Boston or Montreal and Boston or Philadelphia and Pittsburgh", Laviolette said. The team's had to kill penalties just 6.5 minutes per game over their last 10 outings.

Things couldn't really have started any worse for Philly out of the gate, as a bad rebound off of Bryan Elliott gave Pittsburgh's Bryan Rust a window to get his Penguins ahead 1-0 less than three minutes into the game.

All that before Crosby got involved.

Who are the key players?

. It zipped past a stunned Elliott.

It was the most lopsided Game 1 loss in Flyers history and the most goals they had allowed in a playoff game since a 10-3 loss to visiting Pittsburgh in Game 4 of the wild 2012 series.

In the first round, Pittsburgh should have no problem taking care of Philadelphia - who the Pens swept in four regular-season games and blew out 7-0 in the first playoff game Wednesday.

In its only other playoff appearances since joining the National Hockey League in 1999 in Atlanta, the franchise was swept in 2007 by the New York Rangers and 2015 by Anaheim.
