Hockey Wilderness Playoff Open Thread: Round One, Day One

Tonight marks the opening of the marathon that is the Stanley Cup playoffs. The grueling, brutal war of attrition... Ah forget it. Cliches are only funny when making fun of people.

The playoffs really do start tonight. The Penguins and Flyers get things started off, followed up with good clean fun between the Predators and Red Wings, and finished up with Canucks and Kings. How did Wild fans get so lucky, to get to watch both the Nucks and the Wings in one night? Well, finishing as the seventh worst team in the legaue certainly helped the situation.
