Pittsburgh Penguins

The turnout of the first faceoff against Philadelphia was not how the Pittsburgh Penguins had hoped their season starter would be. Despite being able to keep in step with the fierce rivals, Pittsburgh failed to sustain the intensity that eventually allowed the Flyers to blow the game wide open and seal the win. But the team is unperturbed. Head coach Mike Sullivan believes the final score was anything but an indication of how his skaters played for the majority of the match. A loss in their first assignment is not enough to press the panic button, Sullivan believes, stressing that his team is ready to put the fight anew to split the back-to-back games against the Flyers.

Philadelphia Flyers

Wednesday’s victory was Philadelphia’s first season-opener victory at home since 2003. Credit Joel Farabee, who came out with pure business in mind to lead the Flyers with one goal and three assists for the win. The Flyers are still picking up the pieces from their Eastern Conference semifinals setback against the New Islanders last season. There is resolve earned from the painful defeat and it was in display during the crucial stretch of the previous match. With the match knotted at 3-3, Philadelphia shifted to a higher gear and scored three unanswered points en route to the win. The season is off to a promising start for the Flyers, and a second win in a row at home at the expense of their rivals would be a huge confidence-booster.
