I'll go with the WAS in 6 but I sure hope PHI beats the shit out of them physically.

Phil in Absentia

Flyers have given the Caps fits all season. Of all the teams battling for that final wild card spot, the most capable of beating the Caps won out.

BrooklynBoy89
04-09-2016, 11:39 PM
So stoked the Flyers won, hate them, but damn I would love to see them beat the Caps, and wholeheartedly believe they are the team that can pull it off.. Going to be a great series if Mason can keep the Flyers in each game. Simmonds is rolling, it will be interesting if Flyers win one of the first two, that town is AMPED up after thinking this was a rebuilding year.

Taking Caps in 6, a very physical, hard fought sloberknocker six games.

Valriera
04-10-2016, 07:48 AM
Idk I don't have as much hope for this one as most. Caps have been playing cruise control hockey for a month and a half and still winning. I think they sweep the Flyers here.

Caps in six,won't be easy,I still think they ultimately win the series.

I think the Flyers can pull the upset but I'll go caps in 7

CreaseCrusader91
04-10-2016, 10:43 PM
I voted Flyers in six because I feel picking in 7 is just a hang on fence concept. I feel this Flyers team has potential to get under the skin of WSH. Biggest factor will be what goaltending shows up for PHI. I think there's a chance PHI could play the role of MTL circa 2010 playoffs.

Phil in Absentia
04-10-2016, 11:11 PM
Going Caps in 7. Mr. Game Seven will help edge them out.

i can definitely see philly bringing it HARD to washington.

Yeah, and Snider's death is only going to fuel them more.
Do we really know this?

Phil in Absentia
04-12-2016, 12:01 AM
For fact? No. But based on how personally invested Snider always was with the team, I think it's a safer assumption than most.

Karan
04-12-2016, 01:29 AM
Snider has always been one of the more vocal owner's in the league for the past couple decades. He wouldn't hesitate to stand up and fight for his team. So there could be some early emotional boost from that but let's see.

BrooklynBoy89
04-14-2016, 08:16 PM
I'm sure people have seen it, but a video went around in Philly of Giroux FaceTiming Snider after they clinched the Playoffs.. So I think they will be personally fueled up for this. Pure speculation obviously, but they really loved the guy.

BrooklynBoy89
04-14-2016, 08:17 PM
Oh and I picked Philly in 7 as well!

BrooklynBoy89

My god this series is going to be physical. I love it. Wilson and Simmonds tossed for a fight with 6 minutes left in the 3rd. I will be sure to watch every one of these games.

Flyers need to stay out of the box though. 14 PIM, excluding Simmonds.

BrooklynBoy89
04-14-2016, 10:00 PM
But one thing is clear.. Officiating is BRUTAL so far. From these first two division games, it looks like they want the Golden Boy match up. Truly terrible calls against us last night, and against Philly tonight.. And I HATE Philly lol.

I think Washington will win this. You can only get away with getting outshot this badly and not getting scored on for so long. Washington is loaded and will go through I think.

That said, they have to be thinking about the past right now.

Karan
04-23-2016, 01:46 PM
Well PHI is after all one of only four teams to ever come back from 3-0 down so I'm thinking WAS is definitely going to be on edge in Game 6 especially since they'll be on the road. WAS wants absolutely no part of Game 7.

In all seriousness, if you're the Caps and you build this team to win in the playoffs (finally) and you have an historic regular season, you win the President's Trophy, you look poised to go on a major run, you go up 3-0....

Seriously, what the hell happens if they lose this series? What happens if they, yet again, choke and are home early for the summer?

Pittsburgh had it easy with the soft, pathetic embarrassing Rangers. I think the Caps will handle them easily in 5...maybe 6 games.

This WSH team is outstanding - you are giving the Rangers far too much credit. PIT looked good because their competition was really that bad. Philly isn't a contender, but they're at least a playoff team. The Rangers haven't been a playoff team for many months. I think Washington handles them fairly easily, probably in 6 games.

This WSH team is outstanding - you are giving the Rangers far too much credit. PIT looked good because their competition was really that bad. Philly isn't a contender, but they're at least a playoff team. The Rangers haven't been a playoff team for many months. I think Washington handles them fairly easily, probably in 6 games.

Penguins have been the best team in the league the last 4 months after a coaching change and roster turnover.
We were soft, but they are that good

Nothing brings me joy as much as the Flyers and Eagles shitting the bed. Couldn't happen to a nicer fan base.

Love the sam bradford shit show playing out in eagle ville right now as well.
