The Stanley Cup playoffs begin this week, and City of Champions Radio returns to cover every inch of the ice.

More from Pittsburgh Penguins

Co-hosts Matt Gajtka and Larry Snyder welcome friend of the show Ken Will of The Pens Nation to help explore the Pittsburgh Penguins’ first-round series against the New York Rangers and the rest of the postseason field.

Will this year’s Metropolitan Division battle go the same way as last year’s, or can the Pens pull off the upset after staggering into the playoffs?

Matt, Larry and Ken look at the Pens’ strengths and weaknesses and how they match up against the Rangers’ key attributes. They finish up by taking a quick peek at each of the other first-round series.
