Capitals in 6.
Washington has been hot for months now, and Ovechkin is playing like he's the best player in the world.
Rangers have been a great shot blocking team the last few playoffs, but a lot of those pieces are now in Columbus. Lundquivst is good enough to steal a game or too..... but Rick Nash's career is going to continue to be a dissapointment. I don't think they can keep OV from scoring.

I know basically nothing about this series. However, it seems to me that the Caps, and most importantly Ovy, are peaking at the right time. It looks like the Rangers gave up on working for a Cup and tried to buy one. That may work in Baseball, but rarely in hockey.

washington is playing great hockey at the moment, but there playoff past is not great and until ovy can get them over that hump, I dont regard him as one of the best yet.
Rangers can steal a game or 2 and I see it rangers in 7, maybe 6
