Natrually Washington is the favorites, but match the two teams lineups against each other, and I think we tops them in many areas (anyone have the projected Caps lineup for the series, their lines been a mess lately...).
They have the PP edge over us big time, and the PP is so important in the PO's. That gives them the edge overall. But 2nd line against 2nd line, 3rd line against 3rd line, 4th line against 4th line, PK against PK, goalie against goalie -- we get the edge in a lot of those matchups looking at the personell.
