Will the Flyers/Pens series live up to the hype? Will the Canucks find a way to make us hate them even more?

It all starts tonight. Pittsburgh and Philadelphia square off at 7:30 p.m. on TSN, Detroit and Nashville play their Game 1 at 8 p.m. on CBC, followed by Vancouver and Los Angeles at 10:30 p.m., also on CBC.

What are your predictions for these series? Have you adopted a team for the playoffs?

Remember to get your picks in for the Maple Leafs Hot Stove pool over at CBC before the deadline at 7:30 p.m.
