Series Thoughts: Pens vs. Caps

Wow, was this ever an intense series. Lot of OT and one-goal games and it just kept you guessing the entire time, plus you got to put the two hottest young players in the NHL up against each other. This will probably end up being one of the best series’ of the play-offs.

Washington looked good, up until game seven, and both teams seemed equally determined to win this series. It was tight and well-played and both teams looked good. In game seven, Washington seemed to fall apart, while Pittsburgh was just on the ball. It also helped that Pittsburgh had the superior goalie in Marc-Andre Fleury and that seemed to be what gave them the end.

The Penguins definitely deserved to go on to the next round, but the Capitals gave it a good fight and showed that they really are a fantastic team. I suspect that we may see these teams clash again next year, which would be A-ok with me.
