Previewing The Games Tonight

from Steve Ellis of The Hockey News,

Is this the REAL top series to watch?

The Battle of Alberta is the one that everyone is talking about, and rightfully so. It's going to be a bloodbath and one that fans of any team can get themselves excited about.

But look at Florida and Tampa, two of the best teams all season long. Florida is fresh off of a Presidents' Trophy win, while the Lightning have won back-to-back Stanley Cups. From a pure depth and skill perspective, these are two of the deepest teams remaining, and probably the closest on paper in terms of overall talent.

This is the time for the Panthers to beat the Lightning twice in a row, something no team has done in the playoffs the past three seasons...

Will Colorado's rest hurt them?

The Colorado Avalanche had a seven-day layoff from its Game 4 sweep of the Nashville Predators. The St. Louis Blues? They played four days ago.

That's not a huge difference, but a week away from competitive hockey can be a challenge for a team to stay mentally and physically ready for a new round. We know the Blues are no tough opponent, and the Avalanche are definitely the favorite here..

more on the two series debuting tonight...
