Thanks to the Ottawa Senators 4-2 win over the Boston Bruins on Sunday night in the NHL's season finale, all eight matchups in the first round of the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs are set. The Montreal Canadiens are the Northeast Division champions and have the Sens to thank for that. They'll be able to do it personally.
Eastern Conference Quarterfinals
Western Conference Quarterfinals
The Sens win ruined a lot of narratives in the East -- namely, a Leafs vs. Habs first round meeting and the hatred between the Penguins and Senators taking another step. But their win still leaves us with Kessel Bowl 2013 between the Leafs and Bruins, an all-Canada battle in Ottawa vs. Montreal and an all-Atlantic meeting between the Islanders and Pens.
Out West we have a rematch of last year's meeting between the defending champion Kings and the Blues, an intriguing matchup between Vancouver and San Jose, and an expected pasting between the President's Trophy winners in Chicago and the last team to squeak into the postseason, Minnesota. But hey, it's the playoffs. Don't count the Wild out.
The full schedule will be released later Sunday evening, so stick around.
