Know the Enemy:
The playoffs are a journey.
There are twists and turns.
There are highs and lows.
There are upsets.
The Penguins, Capitals, Devils and Sharks are all ranked higher than their opponents.
They all lost game one.
Anything is possible in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
As we mentioned yesterday, if everything goes terribly wrong and the Penguins are swept by the Senators, this could be the last game in Igloo history.
But it won't be.
