Who would have thought that two words would be able to perfectly summarize what playoff hockey means. Nothing will come easy, especially against the back-to-back Stanley Cup champions Pittsburgh Penguins in the first round. Nothing will be given to this team, they will have to earn it, just like they did all season long.
