Tampa Bay Lightning: Heading into their second-round series, Tampa Bay players and coaches are concerned with Montreal's speed. But Lightning head coach John Tortorella wants his squad to concentrate on its own speed game rather than dwelling too much on the Canadiens.

Ottawa Senators: Ottawa exited the playoffs a lot sooner than last year and far sooner than they expected as Stanley Cup contenders. The Senators couldn't make up for Patrick Lalime's shoddy goaltending in the first period of Toronto's 4-1 victory in Game 7 Tuesday night, leaving the Senators to spend another summer wondering what went wrong.

Philadelphia Flyers: Philadelphia has as good a chance as any of the remaining teams to win the Stanley Cup. But the addition of three Russian players since the beginning of the season has some people wondering if the Flyers have become too European to handle the tough going of the playoffs.
