NHL 142 43 2013 NHL playoffs: Eastern Conference first round preview 31724325 Let the good times roll Let+the+good+times+roll NHL

It was the Pittsburgh Penguins and everybody else in East -- and that was even before the trade deadline. The Pens added two captains from other teams (Brenden Morrow from Dallas and Jarome Iginla, pictured, from Calgary) right before the guy who wears their “C,” Sidney Crosby, went down with a broken jaw. There are three teams (Islanders, Maple Leafs and Canadiens) who made it back to the playoffs after at least a one-season absence. (The Leafs hadn’t made it since 2003.) There’s one more thing in the Pens’ favor: The Flyers missed the playoffs and can’t bounce them in the first round like last postseason. Keep clicking for a breakdown of each first-round series in the East.
