The first slate of playoff action starts tonight or more specifically as I write this, in just under four hours. But hey better late than never! So with time ticking down, let’s get right to it!

Here are my picks for each first round series and the number of games, as well my Eastern Conference, Western Conference and Stanley Cup Champions. I also included my bracket I filled out for the NHL.com Bracket Challenge.

Capitals over Leafs in 6

Canadiens over Rangers in 4
