    Their injuries leave Washington with prospect Braden Holtby, 22 years old with 21 games of NHL experience, as the No. 1 netminder and presumed starter until further notice. Holtby has played 16 playoff games in his career between the AHL and WHL.

    I didn't realize both Caps goalies are injured.

    Unfortunately yes they are. We've had younger goalies start and have success in the playoffs before (Varlamov, 2009, 20 years old). Holtby (22 years old) is saying all the right things in the Washington media and is for sure a gamer who isn't intimidated by the Bruins or the playoffs for that matter.

    I live in Bruins country and I'm a Wings fan, that sums it up I think.

    I'm just saying the Caps have literally had the core of Ovechkin, Backstrom, Semin and Green together for 12 games this season and are 11-1 beating teams like the Pens, Sens, Panthers, Red Wings, Bruins and Rangers. I know the regular season could literally mean nothing in the playoffs but it's just something to acknowledge.

    Having the core back together and staying healthy is key. The caps have been playing Playoff hockey for awhile now. I have admit they looked good against my Wings on their last visit, but then again the Wings were pretty banged up too.

    If Vokoun were to return at some point this series, I have a feeling he would string together some monster games. Don't know why, just a feeling. That being said, if he doesn't return, I see the Bruins in 6 or 7

    ^He won't be back. Caps already announced that Vokoun was done for the rest of the year cuz of his groin injury.

    Meanwhile, Vokoun will likely need more time to recover from a groin injury but McPhee said the veteran netminder should be on the ice for a solo workout Tuesday
    Sounds like he will miss the series, but IF the Caps win could be back.

    Bruins in 6...the Bruins depth will be on display and their defense will be ready...plus Thomas has been pretty good in his last 10 games...and Marchand - Bergeron - Seguin have been lights out...I just see Bruins depth winning this for Boston

    The Bruins have a tough go of it in the first round that is for sure. The Caps have played them well all season. I still like Boston in this series though for perhaps 6 games. I do agree with the person who said it had upset potential written all over it.

    What is the upset here honestly? Both are awesome teams...it's just that Washington had a bad year and was 7th in the standings...they are a good team and if they beat Boston it won't be an upset really

    No expect to see:

    Ovechkin - Laich - Brouwer
    Chimera - Backstrom - Semin
    Hendricks - Beagle - Johansson
    Aucoin - Perreault - Ward
    Scratches: Knuble, Halpern, Eakin, Sjogren

    Green - Hamrlik
    Carlson - Alzner
    Schultz - Wideman
    Scratches: Erskine, Orlov
