It's more a case of the biggest upsets in the playoffs tend to happen in the first round. And the Rangers proved last season they can grind down talented teams. Pittsburgh has been winning too easily this year...meeting up with a wall of shot blocking, Lundqvist on his game (and he will get up for the big fish), and suffocating team D will throw them off kilter.

I think the Islanders will have their heads in the clouds and won't beat anyone. Ottawa tends to get all choked up against big rivals/opposition and will focus more on Cooke than the game. Rangers have the best shot.

At least, that's the plan.
