Going to reserve making a prediction on this one until we see how Clowe, Staal and Powe are doing.

Having Staal and Clowe's physical presence for this series would be huge. We all know the Bruins are going to come out hitting hard as they always do.

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.

I've been waiting a long time for this. It will be a bloodbath. It was nice liking Lucic for the last few years, time for me to get ready to hate him with an illogical passion.

The two best defensive teams in the eastern conference just played a 7 game series. The Rangers and Caps. Im telling you now, any team left better watch out for the Rangers.

The only other team with sufficient defense to compete is the Senators, maybe. I think they will beat the Pens. But the Caps and Rangers play great D, block shots, etc...Their defensive styles are suited for playoff hockey. Bruins aint got a chance against this Ranger D. And ill let the series prove that.

You just basically described Bruins. Caps are a total opposite.

This year

Rask: 19W (36GP) 2.00GAA .929% 5SO

Yes Lundqvist has better numbers so far in the playoffs, but very few of the goals scored on Rask have been his fault. They were all on 2nd or 3rd chance opportunities that the D was unable to clear out. He has made some Ridiculous game saving saves vs the Leafs and is one of the main reasons that they're moving on.

As for this series, I don't see it going less than 6 games. If the Bruins have awoken from their slumber, and play like they did to beat the Leafs in the end of the 3rd and OT tonight, then the Rangers are going to have all they can handle.

With the Bruins, it's Jekyll and Hyde. They're either really good, or really bad, there's no in between with them.

Best of luck guys and gals (but not too much ). Should be a fun series.

Seids being out is good news for us. Their D is then very thin outside of Chara.

Lundqvist is the best goalie in the world. I'm not saying Rask isn't great, but to say he's on the same level as Lundqvist just isn't true. It could happen eventually, sure, but Rask isn't quite there yet.

Oh it is on best wishes now Ranger fans because from game 1 and on there will be nothing but hate for each other. Proud to see Brassard flourish and Moore and I know Dorsett will be a pain in the ass. But Nash? What is the deal so far with him ?

Bruins are not as good offensively, defensively, and in terms of goaltenders as the Capitals.

They do have more consistency on their lines though. They have 3 decent lines and 1 thug line. Washington had 2 decent lines and 2 meh lines.

However, they aren't good enough to beat us 5-5. Their powerplay is also not as lethal as the Capitals.

The only thing they are better that than the Capitals is they are more physical. However, I don't see that being too much of a factor. Dorsett, Boyle, Asham, Cally should be enough. If the series starts getting out of hand, Newbury and maybe even Haley will get cracks and then that will equal out the physicality (not that I see it ever getting to that point).

Things to expect: Low scoring games. Not many overtimes, I don't think, but games will come down to the wire.

Keys to winning the series:
- Just shoot on net. Rask is a head case and has Fleury like meltdowns.
- Henrik needs to continue his stellar play.
- Match physicality.
- Win face-offs.
