Sure, if Lundqvist brings his godly game and robs Ovechkin 8 times we might win anyway, but still... it's uneccessary to let him carry us that much.

I have a bad feeling about this game. Caps lost against Philly in a game they should've won and I think they might be out for blood tonight.
You summed it up perfectly. Ovechkin and Semin aren't going to miss the net on a 2 on 1 like Matt Carkner did like 5 times in Ottawa. I would guess Torts will be doing some serious line match-ups tonight, because MDZ or Gilroy on the ice against that first line is trouble. If the Rangers can find a way to nullify that 1st line, even just a little bit, they will have a nice chance at winning.
