I hope the Rangers pathetic possession play against the Caps is a one-off.

Bruins in 6 is a reasonable prediction, but we usually play the B's very well so I think it goes the distance of 7 games. Since I'm riding high from tonight's win, I'll predict that the Rangers take it in the end.
True, Hank against Boston is:

21W 7L 2OTL .943 Sv% 1.67 GAA 6 SO

I guess Hank is the X factor. Put average NHL goalie on both teams and Boston wins 9 time out of 10. Hank single handily puts teams on his back, I am shocked he has not suffered back injuries yet.
