[Wednesday's FTB] Goodbye, first round

Come reflect on the first round with us

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

I love the first round of the playoffs. There's multiple games every night, it's a great excuse to watch better teams than the Leafs (who have usually just been put out of their misery by this point), and none of my predictions have proved to be embarrassing just yet (speaking of which...). While we're waiting another tantalizing game 7 between the Red Wings and the Lightning to close out the first round, let's take a moment to reflect on the playoffs so far. What were your first round highlights? Who were you most sad to see go? What matchups are you most excited about in the next round?
