The 2011 NHL playoffs start Wednesday night and we have series odds for all the first round best-of-seven matchups. The oddsmakers say the biggest mismatch should be the No. 2 seed San Jose Sharks over the No. 7 Los Angeles Kings, while the closest series should be between the No. 4 Anaheim Ducks and No. 5 Nashville Predators.

In the Eastern Conference, the top-seeded Washington Capitals should have the easiest series against the New York Rangers. The closest series in the East should be the shorthanded Pittsburgh Penguins, who’ve been playing without their best two players since January, against the resurgent Tampa Bay Lightning.

The defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks were the last of the 16 teams to make the playoffs, and have longer odds of pulling an upset in their first round series than any team other than the Kings. The Blackhawks face the team with the NHL’s best regular season record, the Vancouver Canucks.

Here are the series odds for all eight first round matchups in the 2011 NHL playoffs.

Eastern Conference:

#1 Washington Capitals (-225) vs. #8 New York Rangers (+185)

#2 Philadelphia Flyers (-160) vs. #7 Buffalo Sabres (+140)

#3 Boston Bruins (-210) vs. #6 Montreal Canadiens (+175)

#4 Pittsburgh Penguins (-140) vs. #5 Tampa Bay Lightning (+120)

Western Conference

#1 Vancouver Canucks (-230) vs. #8 Chicago Blackhawks (+190)

#2 San Jose Sharks (-280) vs. #7 Los Angeles Kings (+240)

#3 Detroit Red Wings (-200) vs. #6 Phoenix Coyotes (+170)

#4 Anaheim Ducks (-130) vs. #4 Nashville Predators (+110)
