The Canadiens and Rangers have known that they’ll meet each other in the first round of the playoffs for some time. You won’t have to wait much longer, as the NHL has released its playoffs schedule, with New York visiting Montreal on Wednesday in Game 1.

This will be the 16th time these two Original 6 teams have met in the playoffs. The last time they met was in 2014, when the Rangers beat the Habs in a six-game Conference Final series.

This is a #1 vs #4 matchup in name only, as the Rangers finished the season with just one point fewer than the Canadiens. Montreal took the season series though, winning all three games between the two teams.

The fun gets going on Wednesday.
