Personally, I don't think it really matters who we play.
Montreal - Better equipped to play the style of play need to beat them this year (Caps win in 6).
Tampa Bay - Too inexperienced as a cohesive unit to go much further in the playoffs. Only thing that concerns me is Dwayne Roloson. (Caps in 6)
Pittsburgh - Not much to say other than always a good series and you have to question how far the Pens could go with out Crosby and Geno. (Caps in 7)
If I could choose who I would want the Caps to face in the 2nd round I would probably have to say Tampa Bay. Partly because I feel it would be the easiest and most comfortable and partly because I would like to see Boston and Philly beat each other up before the ECF.
