With a surplus of available forwards, Ken Hitchcock has decisions to make. Will rookie Jaden Schwartz remain in the lineup? Who starts in net for Game 1, Brian Elliott or Jaroslav Halak? The Blues are looking to bounce back from a sleepy home stretch to the regular season.

Forget about the bad blood. How many goals will be scored in Philly’s first-round series with Pittsburgh? James Neal and Scott Hartnell are first and second in power-play goals, Evgeni Malkin and Claude Giroux are Hart candidates, and Sidney Crosby is healthy. There’s some tough sleddin’ ahead for Ilya Bryzgalov …

For the second straight season, the Kings had home-ice advantage in their sight and failed to capitalize. By blowing two two-goal leads against San Jose, they’re faced with a much more difficult first-round matchup against Vancouver. Jeff Carter should be ready to rejoin Mike Richards and Dwight King on the second line for Wednesday’s opener.

The Senators will be hungry for validation on their upwards trend under Paul MacLean, though they’ll be heavy underdogs to the Rangers after falling into eighth place. Erik Karlsson may win the Norris Trophy, though it’s New York’s stable of defensemen that will keep Ottawa from scoring consistently in the first round.

Their improvement didn’t result in a playoff spot, though there’s plenty of optimism in Denver where the Avalanche will be favorites to join the postseason dance party next year. Matt Duchene never got comfortable while battling injuries in the second half, finishing with four points and a minus-four rating in his final 21 games.

Get this organization some goaltending immediately. Steve Yzerman’s first priority will be finding not just another option in net, but a reliable, full-time starter. The Bolts will have resources to add pieces from their AHL team in Norfolk, which enters the new week on a 25-game winning streak.

It’s tough to pinpoint what Calgary’s roster will look like when training camps open. Maxed out and owing four players at least $5.8 million next year, they’ll need to cut costs and will be pressured to trade Jarome Iginla, who enters a contract year. Would anyone take Jay Bouwmeester at a $6.7 million hit for two more years?

Defenseman Justin Faulk improved as the season progressed and finished with eight goals and 22 points in 66 games while playing most of the season as a 19-year-old. The Canes have 10 forwards under contract for next season as part of a middle-of-the-pack offense.

The Ducks will clear almost $9 million of cap space when Jason Blake, Saku Koivu, Niklas Hagman and George Parros become free agents, though all eyes will be on soon-to-be 42-year-old Teemu Selanne, who led the team with 66 points and will make a decision on whether he’ll return for a 20th season in the summer.

Considering Columbus’ turnaround after trading Jeff Carter, we’re actually kind of hoping Rick Nash decides to stick things out. Jack Johnson recorded 12 points and a plus-four rating in 20 games after the trade, while Columbus ended the year with an 11-8 March and April.
