exactly.... Over an 82 game season the Caps have 4 more wins and 6 more loser points than the Rangers.
This is an real even match up here. The Rangers have the better TEAM statistics and have Hank in Goal.
I am not sure you can say the Caps are better offensively as the Rangers scored more goals than the Caps this year. However, Ovechkin is a freak and could dominate. Gaborik has the potential to dominate also but for whatever reason he has not this year.
But.... it all goes back to the goaltending as the teams are real close to being even besides goaltending
