If every team leading the series 3-2 does win, isn't it the perfect scenario for us?
If would be
FLA - OTT
PHI - WSH
No Boston, no Rangers, no Pens... wow we could very well go to the SFC again this year. Seriously, there's no way we can't beat Washington, and then a ECF against Florida or Ottawa seems pretty good for us. If we beat the Pens, we really have a huge chance of winning it all, in our rebuild year! Please win, PLEASE.
Let's not get ahead of ourselves. Can't underestimate anyone.
I'd like us to take care of business here before we start thinking about later rounds because if we blow this I'm going to be equally mad as I would be excited thinking about how easy a road the Pens have to the Cup.
I would gladly have Lundqvist and Thomas out. Holtby might be playing well, but so did Leighton until he didn't. There could be 4 "upsets" according the to "experts" in the EC first round!
Two teams that I was most worried about in these playoffs. I can't believe they both might be knocked out in the first round. And then the team everyone thought would get upset (Florida) might be the only favorite to advance. It comes to show you that you can't sleep on any team in the NHL playoffs or you will get beat.
