A lot of people seem to think this will be an easy series for the Bruins, but if I'm Boston, the Capitals are not who I was hoping to face in the first round of the playoffs. Washington is still loaded with offensive talent, and even if they're inconsistent as all heck, the firepower of Ovechkin, Semin, and the recently returned Backstrom, is not fun to have to deal with. If Washington gets the goaltending needed to make this competitive, don't expect this to be a cakewalk for the Bruins by any means. I still think Boston will be able to pull it out in 6 games, but I wouldn't be surprised to see this go 7 and would consider this a dark horse upset candidate.
Steve Webb for Commissioner.
