    Ideal for Columbus.

    For sure a playoff board thread.

    I predict WSH will take this one. I won't be shocked if CLB wins, though.

    I'm just happy that if the Jackets crash out of the first round, it won't be against the Pens :lol:

    Gonna say this one goes all the way to Game 7, and my homer bias says Columbus will win. But I feel the matchup is a coin flip.

    Honestly think Bob is going to step up and play as if he is a 7 mil/year goalie butttttt it’s ultimately all on him... put up or shut up time for Bob when it comes to the playoffs (even more so now that CBJ aren’t facing the Pens).

    I look forward to this matchup. I think the teams are more closely matched than the numbers and records show. They had 2 back to back games in February when CBJ was playing very poorly. Last meeting they chased Holtby in the 1st period. Of course CBJ has been on fire since the trade deadline and has not seen the Caps during this stretch. I'm just happy to be playing a team other than Pittsburgh in the playoffs for once.

    Hard to believe but you gotta think Trotz's job is on the line. If the Caps lose here I can't imagine them keeping him.

    So we're better off just giving up and dropping in the first round?

    Caps in 6, we got this.
