And the Penguins went through everything but the Flyers' five-hole in Game 1 of their first-round series.
"For the most part, I think it's just the speed and intensity that increases and all those little details become magnified", said team captain Sidney Crosby, a two-time Conn Smythe Trophy victor as the playoffs' most valuable player the past two seasons.
