New series takes you behind the scenes during Stanley Cup Playoffs

'Cup Confidential' gives you intimate look at postseason like you've never seen before @NHLdotcom

So you can't skate very fast or handle a puck or make an amazing, diving glove save. That doesn't mean you can't experience what it is like to be a member of an NHL playoff team.

A new video series titled "Cup Confidential" has made its debut during the 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

A player from each team takes you behind the scenes, into the locker rooms, on the team plane and more as they all try to help their teams bring home The Greatest Trophy in All of Sports.

Washington Capitals forward Lars Eller will let viewers in on what it's like to try and defend a Stanley Cup title.

Tweet from @Capitals: When you bring it, the guys can feel it. Let���s blow the roof off @CapitalOneArena. #ALLCAPS 🗣 @lellerofficial | #StanleyCup Confidential

Others participating from the Eastern Conference are Boston Bruins forward Chris Wagner, Carolina Hurricanes forward Jordan Martinook, Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman Seth Jones, New York Islanders captain Anders Lee, Pittsburgh Penguins goalie Casey DeSmith, Tampa Bay Lightning goalie Louis Domingue and Toronto Maple Leafs forward Tyler Ennis.

Tweet from @NHL: "Big win last night, but today is a new day." @seth_jones3 scored last night's game-winning goal, but the @BlueJacketsNHL defenseman knows there's still a lot of work to be done. #StanleyCup Confidential

From the defending Western Conference champion Vegas Golden Knights, defenseman Nate Schmidt will be your guide. Colorado Avalanche forward Tyson Jost, Calgary Flames defenseman Rasmus Andersson, Dallas Stars forward Mattias Janmark, Nashville Predators forward Ryan Johansen, San Jose Sharks forward Timo Meier, St. Louis Blues forward Zach Sanford and Winnipeg Jets forward Matt Hendricks.
