5 Canadian teams, and none of them facing each other. We go from no Canadian teams in last year's playoffs to the potential of all 5 being in the second round, thus guaranteeing one making it to the conference finals. Add in getting to see the Leafs who, regardless of your feelings are a pretty damn entertaining team to watch at times, and the Oilers, with Connor McDavid getting into the spotlight he was seemingly born for. We also get to follow Canuck playoff hero Alexandre Burrows in Ottawa, and Jannik Hansen in San Jose. Hell, even Calgary's been decent down the stretch. And let's not forget the Habs, who have found their game since bringing in Claude Julien behind the bench.
5 series start tonight, making for a lot of hockey to get the playoffs started. Let's take a look at the games featured tonight, and you can post your series predictions here in the thread, as well as comments during the games.
