Good post. I find it amazing how teams in the playoffs always step up defensively (Ottawa) like never before. And the Caps are no different. Yeah, they have had their new system in place before the playoffs,... but to shutdown the B's they definitely took it to a higher level. Boston was a top scoring team this year.

With Washington giving us the usual problems, we now have to find a way to get through their D and score. This was quite evident in game 82. I only hope that game was not a true indication of the Rangers effort being it was not a critical game.
