The playoff match-ups are set and it is time to make some predictions! Feel free to comment and let me know what you think!

[1] Washington Capitals VS. [8] New York Rangers

The Caps better be careful here. Because two years ago in the 2009 playoffs they were almost upset in the first round by the Rangers. Down 3-1 in the series thanks to Henrik Lundqvist's unbelievable goal tending, the Caps knew they had to get serious and get back into the series. They ended up tying the series up 3-3 and in game seven in a 1-1 tie with the third period winding down, Sergei Fedorov came up clutch. He ripped a high wrist-er past Henrik Lundqvist to advance the Capitals to the next round. In conclusion, I think that the Caps are just too good to be knocked out by the Rangers. But they better watch out...
