Caps. They seem tough as nails.

Now that i think about it, the Devils are broke and need the rag fans to fill the Prudential.  I choose the NY gary's errrr Rangers

One could easily argue that the Rags are fortunate to be playing in game 7!  Washington lost game 4 in double overtime, lost game 5 by giving up the tying goal with 7 secs to go and then losing in overtime so to say they have been fortunate?  Although I would agree that Holtby should win the MVP of the series regardless of who wins game 7, I actaully think Washington is a bit unlucky to not have won the series.  Anyway, I hope it is a great game!

As a Caps fan, it was triple OT and completely deflating. This is a terrible game to be though, might as well flip a coin because this garbage could go either way. As one said earlier, its gonna be a lucky bounce that determines this one.

Neither of these 2 teams has been good enough to beat the other in consecutive games. If your approach to this series before it began had been to pass on Game 1 and then back against the winner of the previous game, you'd currently be 5-0.

Just food for thought.

I think we would all agree that Torts has been thoroughly outcoached by Dale Hunter in this series

The Caps have been unfortunate, if anything this series.  Game 1, the Rangers were definitely the better team, but since then, the Caps have been better more often than not.  Shots on goal is not the measuring stick for who's played the better series, as Caps fans have learned to often in their recent history of playoff letdowns.  

Game 3 in 3OT was an extremely fortunate win for the Rags.  Washington hit about 6-8 posts that game alone and had far more opportunities to win that game than New York until Gaborik ended it.  Yet, the Caps showed their resiliency and came back.  Game 5 was the worst game the Caps played all playoffs, yet they still had a lead with 7 seconds left.  The Rangers stole that one and are lucky to still be alive in this series after that.

Finally, one thing people seem to forget is that this same core group of Caps players have already beaten Lunqvuist and the Rangers twice in the last 4 years in the postseason.  The Rangers have gotten better with Richards, but the Caps have become a much better, tougher postseason team (with a much better goalie) since then, and yet everyone acts as if Washington is the great big underdog.  I just don't see it.  Washington has a better roster top to bottom in my opinion, and as long as Holtby is playing on par with Lunqvuist, I have to give the Caps the edge.

Tomorrow comes down to a coin flip in my mind.  It will be one bounce or break one way or another.  However, I'd take the Caps if I were to bet on it, for value, as well as because of both teams' mindsets heading in.  The Caps are playing without the pressure they usually feel, and it's all on New York this time.  I think Washington finds a way to get it done and will be the east's Stanley Cup Finals representative when it's all said and done.

No doubt about that Yumdog and it will continue in Game 7.

Are your posts supposed to be serious? I honestly really can't tell most of the time.

I agree with the under. Caps coulda easily won this series in 5 if not for a few posts and unlucky bounces.. even the goal the Rags scored in game 6 was a lucky deflection of the defensemans behind.. that being said it's all part of the game and the series stands tied at 3.   I personally feel the Rangers pull this one out maybe even in OT but I'm thinking 2-1 or even 1-0
