This time around, they're going to thrive off of that pressure. I don't think they're going to go all the way, but I do think they're going to have a lengthy run, unfortunately.
I thought it was going to go 6 games with Callahan in the lineup. Without him...it doesn't look good.
Yeah, I know that Callahan hurts even with Drury back.
Still, the Rangers were 9-3-1 in their last 13, so it's not like they backed in here, either. It depends largely on the Rangers ability to score, the Caps goaltending, and how well the Caps respond to being the "favorite" yet again.
I think they can be had. 50/50 chance, to me.
