Pittsburgh Penguins coach Dan Bylsma appeared on NHL Live to look back at a challenging Eastern Conference First Round series against the Columbus Blue Jackets and ahead to the Penguins' second-round series against the New York Rangers.
Game 1 of the best-of-7 series is Friday at Consol Energy Center (7 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, RDS) and Bylsma is expecting a different Rangers team compared to the one the Penguins saw earlier in the season.
"They've changed a little bit," Bylsma said. "I feel like we don't know them and aren't as familiar with them as we normally would be. Certainly there's some cast of characters there. You've got three really good lines, [Martin] St. Louis and [Rick] Nash on the top line has got the star power, and you always got the storyline of [Henrik] Lundqvist in net."
The Penguins advanced to the second around after defeating the Columbus Blue Jackets in six games. All but one game was decided by a score of 4-3.
