And, here we go.

The Blue Jackets and Tampa Bay Lightning will meet for the first time in a Stanley Cup playoffs series. The best-of-seven showdown is slated to begin Wednesday night at Amalie Arena in Tampa, where the Blue Jackets haven't seen much success.

But hey, it's a new season, right? Stranger things have happened than the second wild card team upsetting one of the best regular season teams in NHL history. We're trying to talk ourselves into this being a dogfight.
