Can we get serious for a minute here, please? Enough about your busted NCAA bracket, your baseball panic attacks 1 percent into the season and your seared retinas from watching overtime NIT semifinals. It’s playoff time, people. We are two short weeks from some of the calendar’s best action. And every day before then, teams are battling for finals spots or falling out of the race.

Here, we asked our lead NHL and NBA beat writers, Michael Russo and Jerry Zgoda, to give us an early look at their favorite emerging playoffs story line.
