Shayne Gostisbehere had a tough playoff series against the Penguins and was a minus-eight.
"I don’t think I played well in the playoffs," Gostisbehere said. "I played in the playoffs before and I didn’t really play against first lines in my first playoff series and then this year, I did. It’s tough. You think you’re so well prepared for it and you go out in your first game and you’re minus-4. It’s a tough pill to swallow. I was on some crappy goals and some that were my fault." Gostisbehere is a strong offensive defenseman and had 13 goals and 65 points in the regular season including 33 points on the power play. He should be one of the top-five defensemen in fantasy drafts next season. May 6 - 8:08 AM

The Philadelphia Flyers got some extra motivation from the Eagles' Super Bowl victory.

The Eagles are a good story for the Flyers to use as inspiration, especially given that they missed the playoffs for three straight years before their incredible championship run. Their underdog status will also be something that the Flyers will doubtlessly embrace should they manage to claw their way into the playoffs this year.
