Meh, nothing interesting at all to me about this series. Should be a cakewalk for the Caps.

Hmm.   ‘Canes can take down Ovie & co.?  In a dream maybe, but in reality...nyet.

Capitals in 5.  Washington being the defending SC Champions couldn’t possibly lose this one.  No.

Caps in 7. Carolina has played well all season, but couldn’t score early in the season. They’re a much tougher opponent than they’re being given credit for.

Caps in 7. My heart wants me to pick Carolina here, especially since I'm not even that high on Washington this season, but I think their goaltending comes back down to earth.

I suspect no teams bothered to really game plan for Carolina (or Montreal, or New York) this season. Washington is picking them apart so far.

Holtby trying to sell the refs on his figure skating skills a goaltender interference. Wallmark tips in a changeup as a result of this Jonathan Quick impression.

Also how was that stick kick legal? That's pretty dangerous if he catches the gloves.

I feel bad for Svechnikov. I think when you can get their best player off the ice for 5 minutes by getting him to fight, you do it but it sure turned ugly when he got knocked out. At 19 years old and 40lbs lighter then Ovie the fight hardly seemed fair. Hope he's okay and we see him back soon.
