...But where do we start?

So after all that buzz about teh OMGz Hurricanez, it's Flyers-Pens in Round 1. All that remains to be decided is where the series will start.

The good guys and the bad guys are currently tied in the standings with 99 points, but the Pens have more victories and thus the tiebreaker if things don't change.

All the Flyers have to do is scratch out a measly point (or two) against the Rangers today to snare home ice. Just a point. And it would be great if Martin Biron inspired some confidence along the way.

Either way, expect an absolute Pennsylvania brawl in this series. The Pens dominated the regular season matchup, but I would expect no less than 7 games from these two teams.

I think the series comes down to who can defend (as it always does). The Orange and Black roll out the deepest 3 lines in the league, the Pens have Crosby, Malkin and the spark of Guerin, and both sides have major questions defensively.

If Parent/Timmonen and Coburn/Carle can keep the Dynamic Duo from slicing the Flyers up, I think it's on to the conference semifinals. Otherwise, hello Aronimink.
