*Playoffs! They start tonight! Fun hockey! To get you started, here’s a quick rundown of each of the Eastern Conference series... [Sports Illustrated]

*... and also for the West. More that a couple of really tight matchups across both conferences; should be a party. [Sports Illustrated]

*And if you’re the betting type, here are all the things and such you’ll need to known to try and win yourself some money. [SB Nation]

*Oh the lottery was last night who cares whatever the gods are dead go birds. [BSH]

*We’re going to be linking to stories about the coaching search every day until we find a coach, I’m sorry. [ProHockeyTalk]

*So what if the Flyers were to get spicy and hire another unknown commodity to coach the team, but this time from Europe? [BSH]

*Speaking of the coaching search, we can take Bruce Boudreau off the list. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Somehow, Scott Gordon may be the front runner for this coaching gig. This choice would be the Most Flyers of choices. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Another problem that needs to be solved is that of the backup goaltender. [Courier-Post]

*So, Wade Allison, the NCAA prospect that Ron Hextall really, really wanted to turn pro, is likely going to finish out his college career. Welp. [BSH]

*And, assuming no Wade, what might the Phantoms look like next season? Some of it seems good, some of it seems very, very bad. [BSH]

*How’d all of those deadline deals improve - or not - the teams that have made it to the playoffs? [AP]

*And now for a bit of fun: the NHL anti-awards! Who sucks, you ask? Here are some answers. [Pension Plan Puppets]
