Penguins Open With Lightning In First Round Of Playoffs

With the Islanders being terrible and losing to the Flyers last night that set the playoffs for the Eastern Conference. The first round match ups will be as follows:

(1) Washington Capitals vs. (8) New York Rangers
(2) Philadelphia Flyers vs. (7) Buffalo Sabres
(3) Boston Bruins vs. (6) Montreal Canadians
(4) Pittsburgh Penguins vs. (5) Tampa Bay Lightning

Obviously the biggest match up of the first round is the Penguins/Lightning one. Here is a breakdown of how the season series went, with both teams winning games at home:

October 27: Tampa Bay 5, Pittsburgh 3

November 12: Pittsburgh 5, Tampa Bay 1

January 5 - Pittsburgh 8, Tampa Bay 1

March 31 - Tampa Bay 2, Pittsburgh 1

This should be a good series. I will probably have some breakdown along with the television schedule when it comes out. I am seeing and hearing that it will probably be Wednesday/Friday/Monday/Wednesday since the Lightning can't play at home over the weekend. Will know for sure later in the day today.
