Their PP scares me, and our PK isn't great to begin with.
That's the one spot where I think the habs can get burned against the isles. Neither of them are an easy out though. I wouldn't be surprised if all those teams want the habs more than any other possible matchup either
There's not going to be a lot of PPs in the playoffs and to be fair, I think the Habs have been guilty of overconfidence when playing NYI. That wouldn't happen in the playoffs either.
I voted Ottawa but if EK is back for the 1st round I'd rather get the Islanders. They're a 1-line team, which is easier to neutralize in a best of 7, especially with home ice advantage, and I get the feeling making the playoffs is going to be their Stanley Cup, usually leading to an early exit.
