George McPhee....The Teflon GM. 15 years of failure and counting....
6 - Number of playoff series the Capitals have won since George McPhee took over as General Manager in 1997 (which makes him the third-longest-tenured GM in the League), three of which came in McPhee's first season on the job.
i wouldn't be surprised if they won or lost. They tend to play up and down to their opponents. i wouldn't be surprised by a 5-3 game.

The caps are a mediocre team that play fairly well when the opposition's will and puck control isn't that great. Against stronger, more determined, more skilled and balanced teams they routinely buckle. Detroit is one such strong team.
