They both walk a fine line between winning and losing any given game, because they rely on good goaltending and depth of scoring. I for one, would argue that they are both built not just for success during the regular season, but the playoffs as well.

What are usually the biggest determining factors in advancing in the playoffs? Depth of scoring and good goaltending, right? Both of these teams have excellent goaltenders, and finally we can boast having a comparable amount of depth. Sure we may not win every game, but over a 7 game series, the law of averages will take over, and this team will win more than it loses. Any given night we have 3 lines that can put the puck in the net, and a goaltender who doesn't give up too many at the other end.

This is going to be one heck of a season. Real deal.
I agree, real deal
