    I want that Prince of Wales trophy (is that the Eastern Conference one? I can never remember).

    noob question
    Does Caps have speed at all? I know Pens do, but assuming Caps are more or less like B's?

    First - Bruins do have some speed. We just neutralized it.

    But Washington plays a pretty heavy game.

    I see...
    was just wondering if our speed can work well against them. Pen's speed and scoring depth wasn't enough but their main problem was their D I guess.

    Pens are dinged up.

    Anyway - I think our forecheck will be able to really hurt their D. Outside of Niskanen none are really very good back there. We're going to have to get Holtby moving side to side as well.

    Washingtons defense is weak while the lightnings is amazing. Washington also has no depth scoring, so shut down the top two lines and they'll struggle mightily. The only issue should be Holtby, but who knows, he was pretty crappy earlier this year.

    I'm rooting hard for you guys, I just hope you have someone who can goon it up with Wilson, that guy sucks.

    Just became aware that the Lightning are the only team remaining in the playoffs with a Stanley Cup in their franchise history.

    That's something I never would've ever believed would be true in a million years. Holy crap.

    I have no concern with this team figuring out how to make any goalie vulnerable at even strength. It's the the special teams that concerns me. PK is bad as usual but the PP has also gotten a lot less impressive in the Bruins series.

    Brett Connolly is going to destroy us, knew we should've kept him.

    want no part w/ whoever that guy is. don't want to give them any PP either.
    Hope refs can take care of him if he tries to injure our guys at all.

    Let's all just be thankful for Steve Yzerman's Team Canada connections and the favoritism they win him with the NHL Powers That Be.

    I was once an neighbors with an lowly catipals fan. I was out washing an car in an driveway and this dimwitted cap says "hey how bout doin my an car next?" An complete silence from me, not going to dignify an dumb catipal fan with an fake laugh, even though an fake laugh is the only laugh an catipal fan ever gets.

    Well its going to be interesting. Maybe its just me but there seemed to be a lot more open ice in the pens caps series. If that continues then I really like our chances. Should open up things for Kuch and Stammer.

    I feel like our ex-Rangers have seen enough of these guys over the last few years too. McDonagh and Girardi especially
