The 2013 Stanley Cup playoff matchups are finally set, and after the Ottawa Senators knocked off the Boston Bruins in the final game of the season, it'll be the B's taking on the Toronto Maple Leafs in the first round of the postseason.

There's no shortage of star power here, as the likes of Tyler Seguin, Patrice Bergeron and Zdeno Chara take on Phil Kessel, Nazem Kadri and Dion Phaneuf.

This will be a hotly contested series, as both teams play mildly different styles.

While the Maple Leafs have a handful of big forwards, they aren't built to play a grinding, mash 'em up game to the same degree as the Bruins.

Goaltending could also play a huge role in this series. Both James Reimer and Tuukka Rask are trying to solidify themselves as top-notch goaltenders in their young careers.

Without further ado, let's break down what should be a classic series between two Original Six teams that have not met in the playoffs since the 1970s.
