2012 NHL Playoff Watching Thread

This is our open thread for tonight's round one playoff games. Tonight's matchups are:

New York Rangers vs Ottawa Senators (starts at 6:30 PM CST on NHL network)

Boston Bruins vs Washington Capitals (starts at 6:30 PM CST on NBC Sports Network)

St. Louis Blues vs San Jose Sharks (starts at 6:30 PM CST on CNBC)

Phoenix Coyotes vs Chicago Blackhawks (starts at 9:00 PM CST on NBC Sports Network)

As part of tonight's watching thread, feel free to discuss the events of last night's games. Will Philadelphia beat Pittsburgh? Should Shea Weber have been suspended for his hit on Henrik Zetterberg? Can the Kings keep up their scoring ways and beat the Vancouver Canucks?

Tell us who you want to win and why. Will we see any suspensions out of the first round? If the Stars had made it in as the seventh or eighth seed, would they have been able to beat the Canucks or the Blues?
