I think it is more important to win this series in less than 7 games. As we all saw last year, multiple 7 game series are too much for most teams to handle.

They need to have a good start as well. When Holtby gets into his comfort zone he is a very good goalie. When he lets in a few, it takes him a bit to get back to being right. Need to take advantage.

The loss of Staal, Dorsett, Clowe and Boyle is going to be felt A LOT. That is a lot of "grit" and "sandpaper" that the Rangers line-up is missing. Not to mention their hockey skills as well as their collective size. The Caps are a pretty big, physical team with Erskine, Ovechkin, Brouwer, Chimera, Hendricks and Ward.
