I think the Caps will take the SE, honestly. They're hot at the right time and the Holtby/Neuvirth tandem is a pretty good one.
They've been really struggling against teams that aren't in the Southeast this season. 12-3 against that division 8-14-2 out of it. They've got a rough schedule to finish off the season against teams currently in playoff positions. Don't get me wrong, they're a better team than the Jets and the best in the Southeast this season, but that really is not saying much of anything and it's certainly possible they make it out of this stretch without a playoff spot. We'll see if they make me eat crow, though. I actually wouldn't mind if they did because I do like watching Ovechkin play.
