Ben Burns: PLAYOFFS GAME 1 PERSONAL FAVORITE (EARLY!)
The Caps started slowly in the round robin but got better as it progressed. I believe that they're peaking at the right time, entering their series with the Islanders. The Isles are well-coached as former Trotz led the Capitals to the Cup a couple of years ago. The Caps are the more complete and talented team though, in my opinion. While the Isles were taking on the Panthers, the Caps were getting warmed up against top Eastern teams like Tampa, Boston and Philadelphia. The Caps can beat you with offense or with defense. They can beat you by being more physical or they can out-finesse you. That said, I feel this price is more than reasonable.
Will Rogers: 3-GAME SUPER DESTRUCTION PASS (BREAK OUT THE BROOMS!)
The set-up: The Islanders grinded out first round victory over Florida, but now they face a veteran laden Capitals team that's loaded with talent on both ends of the ice. New York's strength is its depth across its four lines, but the Capitals have been here before and I think that they'll find a way to get the job done here as well.
The pick: The first game of each series in the playoffs will be critical to win, as there is no home ice advantage this season. If a home team loses its first game, it absolutely has a big time advantage in that second game in trying to rebound. But that factor is now nullified because of the Pandemic.
Tim Michael: TRIPLE SHOT OF NHL WINNERS > > w/ 10* SIDE & TOTAL!
I think the Isles will come out a bit flat here after their four-game series win over the Panthers. The Capitals only won one of their three round robin games, but much like Tampa Bay, I believe Washington was just "going through the motions" as it got ready for the playoffs. Tampa was 0-3 in its round robin games, but it held on for the 3-2 win in five OT's last night. Washington has no significant injuries like the Lightning though.
