I meant taking expectations into consideration. I could have been clearer.

Nothing. Sens already lost, so a Caps win = 7th at worst.

Maybe if the Caps were getting the Bruins I could see his line of thought but against the Rangers as he assumes? I don't agree with the Caps being an easy out for the Rangers at all.

Out of every team they could get I think the Caps will give them the most problems. I would much rather play them than the Bruins as well. Of course the optimal choice would be to win the division and get home ice with the Devils.

I believe Nick will still be at a point a game for his career (and the year) even if he doesn't get a point, but it'd of course be best if he's got his timing back now so he can be relaxed for the start of playoffs.

It's really a difficult situation he has been in; trying to come back after 3 months off, after only a little more than two weeks of skating and then to immediately have to play in "playoff-like" games with unrealistic expectations (by some) for his performance to immediately return to January 3 level. Good luck to him.

Hey, Sens fan...

Can you beat the Panthers in OT? I'd prefer it if we could face the Rangers instead of you... That way we might actually win a round...

Asked to describe the previous three games they’ve played against each other, Hunter and Rangers coach John Tortorella gave different responses.

Said Hunter: “Good hockey games. We know they’re a good team and that’s why they’re battling Vancouver for first overall. We’ve got to play our best because they’re well-balanced and they have good goaltending. The coach is intense, the players block a lot of shots and they play hard.”
*
Asked the same question Tortorella replied, “Don’t even remember.”

And when asked if the Capitals look different under Hunter, Tortorella said, “I don't care. I don't know anything about them. I'm only going to worry about ourselves"


Ok I dislike Torts again....bring on the Rangers.

Quick goal by Ovechkin haha he's getting on fire at the right time this year. I sort of feel bad for the Ranger's if they play the Caps.

Hating the Caps less and less, and the Rangers more and more this season. So for the next 60 hockey minutes, Go Caps!

And lol. 2-0 already.
