Washington gets the better of the Penguins in a wild six game series.

Caps have it this time me thinks.  Ovi deserves one deep run. I think this is his year. 

 

I'm cheering caps all the way.

Tom Wilson and DSP need to damn nail Phil & Sid every chance they can get.

 

This has to be the year the Caps slay the dragon

It’s OV’s year to dominate this series.  He’s on his way to the Cup, and Conn Smyth.

I'd be over the moon if that happened. Here's hoping he can run over the Pens!

pens own caps.  History repeats itself

I feel like the Caps will finally win but I also know now to bet against Crosby and Malkin.

 

Caps are a better overall team but Pens have two of the top 3 centers in the game.

If history always repeats itself, we would not have slayed the dragon in 2011...

A surprise upset late game 6.  PITT will be calm and cool having it tied with 5 minutes and 32 seconds left in the third.  When Ovi will scream down the side and fire on Murray.  The rebound will fall to a streaking Carson who will net it!  Then PITT will be in under disbelief and ovi will have his biggest shift or 2 to finish the game doing everything to keep them ahead.  then they win and advance to face the Toronto Maple Leafs LOL

Caps have a lesser team on paper than they did last year, but hopefully learned a lot from their series with Columbus.

 

Will still be Pens in 7 though.

it is always a mistake to count out the champs

they need to be carried off in stretchers for the pens not to win

too much playoff experience, depth and pride on the pitts team

they have shown no reason why the caps should win

 

the caps have just showed some flashes against cbj

but that is not enough to give them the series over pitts

pitts showed many flashed of their own

and has crosby ever played better then he did this last series ?

Last year Washington had the superior team, but just didn't get the bounces.

 

This year, with Washington's weaker team, and with Pens having Letang and at 3C, Pittsburgh is better on paper. But if Malkin isn't 100% that may even the playing field.

 

I hope the Caps win, but I'm certainly not going to bet against the Pens!
