I wish I could say that I’m surprised that the Capitals are in the position that they’re in, but in all honesty I’m not. New York had the advantage of a competitive series to get an extra 3-4 games in over Washington who played round-robin games that at times for Washington and the other teams involved, felt like they didn’t care. New York just has Washington’s number, as their gritty style of play has shaken Washington up and I think the Capitals, even as an experienced group of veterans, go down with a whimper as they get swept. Give me the New York Islanders as my premium pick for this game.
