    It's tough when it gets this dead.

    Although, any real activity for the playoffs will likely be in the team forums.

    Crazy how many have Caps vs Blackhawks. Caps are notorious one-series-and-done-ers. We won the presidents trophy last year as well and never advanced. After the way we played last night I would bet my lifes savings we dont make it to the finals.

    Briefly looked through those predictions. Looked like 75% of the analysts had Capitals and Blackhawks in the finals.

    For years I have always seen the Caps as choke artists, but I see something different this year. I think this is finally their time.

    Maybe so but St. Louis had no business winning game 1.

    And I don't think it's crazy that most had Caps-Hawks. Seems to me that's just people afraid to go out on a bit of a limb.

    They could very well win the next 2 at home. I wouldn't be surprised at all.
