Will the Caps show up when it matters?

Rangers seemingly haven't done s*** in the playoffs since 1994.

I think the Caps will win this series. If not, that team should be gutted in the offseason, and Boudreau will most likely be fired.

I actually like the Rangers chances in this series quite a bit.

We'll see if the Caps new philosophy of defense first carries over well into the playoffs.

Henrik Lunquvist has the chance to steal this series... He has had an amazing season and is the only reason the Rangers are in the playoffs... IMO he should be getting Veizna as he played in so many games and still had one of the best save % and GAA. Their games were all really good this year... it should be a fun series

I love Lundqvist too, but Thomas and Rinne both had better years. Thomas is going to run away with the Vezina and rightfully so.

Thomas will win it, but I think it's worth pointing out that he "only" played 57 games. You have goalies like Lundqvist, Price and Rinne who all have great stats while being relied upon much more by their team. I think any of those 4 would be worthy winners, and hell you could make a good case for Luongo as well.

Lundqvist is easily the most important to his team though. And 2 years ago he was close to stealing the 1st round against the Caps. It could very well happen this year.

I'm not really sure what to think about the Caps however.. we're about to find out whether Bodreau is a genius or an idiot. I've been going back and forth on that matter this season.
I think in the end it could come down to the goalies, and I don't see Lundy being outplayed by Varly, Holtby, and whatever other goalies the Caps have.

Rags in 7.

How many playoff series has Lundqvist stolen during his illustrious career in New York?

I have to say the rags win this series, if they can score. they dominated the caps this season.

intent to blow the whistle.

wow pushed the whole goalie in and they get the goal

If that was the Wings, that would be "intent to blow"

But because it's Ovechkin, it's a goal.

The whistle was in his mouth he just didn't blow it.

intent to blow the whistle only counts against the wings, you know that.

Pretty good game, hoping it doesn't go into overtime because I want to watch Vancouver/Chicago game -_-

Imma let you finish, and your cap numbers are all good and all that, but imma let Kenny figure it out. Kenny's cap numbers were the best cap numbers this year.
