Peterborough's 1-2 at centre of Nighbor and Schmidt is scary. I don't think the Nighthawks have the centres to match that. Ratelle and ...? As a result I would expect Peterborough to control much of the play.
The Nighthawks have a couple of dangerous wingers in Gilbert and Martin, but the Petes have some good two-way wingers to match them.
Bob Gainey isn't as useful as he could be, as Peterborough's strength is C, not RW.
Looks to me like Patrick Roy will have to steal this one for the Nighthawks. Roy over Cheevers is a pretty big edge. Scoring the first goal will be huge in this series, especially with Peterborough's defensive team design.
Disclaimer: My team plays the winner of this series.
