We didn't play badly yesterday. For some reason Holtby played like an animal and Lundqvist sucked. Other than that, we dominated. Everybody take a deep, collective breath.
Anderson is 4 and 2 in his last 6 and really they didn't play to win their last 2 games. Knowing that Washington and Florida would battle it out for the division and in doing so knock us back to 8th this is the match up they wanted.
You think Ottawa is a soft team?
In all seriousness Ottawa hasn't needed to play great hockey all season in order to get into the playoffs. They have had very good stretches which took the pressure off of them later in the season. They are mentally and physically fresh and coached by a really good staff.
I say Ottawa splits the first 2.
