We've combed the Internet to find what some experts, writers and celebrities are saying about the Senators/Rangers first round series.

Read some examples of their predictions below, and make your own in our comments section:

"Despite not playing their best hockey to wrap up the final month, New York has proven it can win when it needs to, from the Winter Classic to the home stretch in which it held off advancing Pittsburgh to preserve the top seed. A lesser team would have wilted, and the Rangers won't flop here, either. Rangers in five." - Katie Baker, ESPN.

"The Senators will give the Rangers plenty of trouble in the first round, but in a test of depth for both teams, New York will wear them down to prevent the upset. Rangers in 7." - Katie Strang, ESPN New York.

"Craig Anderson has had some strong playoff performances and the Senators have game-breaking talents that could make matters interesting, but the Rangers' strong play all season long has established them as rightful favourites." - Scott Cullen, TSN.

"I don't think there's a large chance for the Ottawa Senators. Look at the key matchups - goaltending is clearly in favour of the New York Rangers. Look at the stifling defensive style that's played, I give the clear advantage again to the Rangers." - Marc Crawford, TSN. 20 per cent chance of an Ottawa upset according to the TSN panel.

"(Erik Karlsson) can control the puck against top lines and his creativity and fluid skating could poke holes in the rigid Rangers system. Then again, the system could also overwhelm the youngster, who has just six playoff games under his belt. Rangers in six." - Sarah Kwan, Sports Illustrated.

Senators in six. - Denis Potvin, Sportsnet.

"I'm sticking with the Local Heroes. Craig Anderson has to be spectacular but the Senators can get this done. Rangers are ripe for an upset. Senators in seven." - Bruce Garrioch, Ottawa Sun.

"I almost always go with the better goalie in a close series. Rangers in seven." Don Brennan, Ottawa Sun.

"This may be the final season for the popular Senators forward. (Daniel Alfredsson) has been a big playoff performer with 45 goals in 107 career Stanley Cup playoff games and Ottawa will need his production if it has designs on an upset. Rangers in six." Tim Wharnsby, CBC.

"The Senators are going to win in six." Jim Watson, Ottawa Mayor.

"The Rangers should reap the fruits of the Brad Richards-Marian Gaborik partnership, while the relentless forechecking of Ryan Callahan, Brian Boyle & Company should neutralize Ottawa's high-scoring defenseman Erik Karlsson. Rangers in six." Jeff Z. Klein, New York Times.

"Ottawa will run over the Rangers in a couple of games with its speed and power play and force the series back to Canada, but goaltending and grit ultimately will win it for the Blueshirts. Rangers in six." Pat Leonard, New York Daily News.
