*IT’S GO TIME, FRIENDS! And just in case you weren’t excited enough, let this send you: Oskar Lindblom is in the bubble and with the team. [Inquirer]

*Just in case, here’s a full rundown of the whens and wheres for this series ahead of tonight’s Game 1. [NBC Sports Philly]

*We won’t know the final lineup until the puck drops, probably, but the AV decision that might have the biggest impact has gotta be the Ghost vs. Hagg choice. [BSH]

*The top of the lineup, though, needs to get going. And they know it. [Inquirer]

*The Habs, for their part, are embracing the role of the underdog. Feels a bit weird going in as the favorite, to be honest. [CBC]

*It’s always interesting to see things from the other side, and this is what the Habs fans will be focusing on as this series kicks off. [Habs Eyes On The Prize]

*Charlie and his Montreal Canadiens counterpart had a conversation about what they expect from their respective teams in this series. [The Athletic]

*So, how do the Flyers beat these dorks? [NBC Sports Philly]

*But yeah the Flyers are the best chance Philly has to win a championship by a wide, wide margin and it’s going to be really fun to see the whole city rally behind them. Once everyone realizes it’s real. [Inquirer]

*In that vein, a handy guide to hopping on the bandwagon. Tell your friends. [The Athletic]

*Ahead of yesterday’s games, some of us here at BSH weighed in with our thoughts on the first round series. Both the Eastern Conference and the Western Conference.

*And finally, no better way to kill the many, many hours between now and puck drop than with fresh new podcast content! The Flyperbole boys dive into the Montreal Canadiens roster to size up the opponents, and the BSH Radio crew talk lineup possibilities and series expectations on the latest episode. Enjoy, GO FLYERS.
