Edit: It’s the Devils.

Edit: The Florida Panthers defeated the Boston Bruins, so we’ll go with Choice A, thanks.

Below is the round one playoff schedule.

The Tampa Bay Lightning organization was kind enough to send out these PDFs of the two different schedule scenarios, hinging upon whether the Boston Bruins win the division with a victory of any kind, or whether the Bolts win with a Bruins’ loss of any kind. Either way, it all begins on Thursday, April 12.

But this begs the question: who would you rather have the Bolts face in the first round of playoffs, the New Jersey Devils or the Toronto Maple Leafs? Poll below the schedules.

Feel free to comment and speculate on how you think each series will go, too!
