True, but I think Boston is the better team in general, the Caps too. The Islanders are playing well, but right now they're on a streak partly because they've played several games against Buffalo and NJ.Islanders have totally croaked the Bs. Didn't hurt that all four games were played on Islander ice, but still, they've had Boston's number.
Otoh, we've done much better against the Rangers
CAPS fan checking in here - I’m going to say I would like us to go with Anderson anyway at this point. I think NBC showed a stat that his save percentage was pretty good in playoffs. Would prefer to switch to Samsonov if needed. I think either he or Kuzy or both had the virus and who knows if/how that would affect them stamina wise. Much respect for Bergeron as well as Marchand. Wish we had someone that could win some face offs bc I think that is going to hurt us over the course of the series. I also think Wilson sees a bullseye on Lauzon at this point and that could heat up in a few games. Hall’s speed really put us on our heels. Carlson and Oshie playing hurt already.I really hope not but that's my fear as well. Especially since Samsonov has been out (and who knows when he'll be back...)
