2019 Eastern Conference Preview: A very fun Jaromir Jagr / Bruce Cassidy story

The world of the Pittsburgh Penguins is quiet at the moment, as general manager Jim Rutherford has managed to go about a week without making any potentially inflammatory comments for media and fans to run and go crazy with.

The NHL playoffs are still churning on, and the conference finals matchups are set. In the East, the Carolina Hurricanes have come out of the first two rounds of the Metropolitan bracket. Since this playoff format started in 2014, it had always been the New York Rangers (2014, 15), Pens (2016, 2017) or Washington Capitals (2018) winning this side of the bracket, so perhaps there is another changing of the guard in place.
