There really IS a cure for insomnia! I'm sure this will be a great series, one that nobody will watch...but it has the potential to go the distance. The winner won't feel much of a winner when they get pounded on in the 2nd round so why even bother? The Caps still have Kolzig who is experienced enough to get them past TB, who I don't think anyone still takes seriously.

Caps in 6.

i don't like Tampa i don't feel they are built for the play offs. i think Washington will find lots of ways to score but like they've done all season Tampa will find a way to stay in this series. i see this one going to distance
Caps in 7

It is only appropriate these two teams play each other 'cuz they both suck and neither deserves to play a higher-seeded team for the chance to upset them.

I'm giving this series to the Capitals. Hopefully Kolzig finds his '98 form which would give us a great goaltending battle. Jagr is back in the playoffs after missing out for the first time in his career last season. Meanwhile, Lecavalier and much of the Lightning gets their first taste of hte postseason.

To tell you the truth I could care less what happens in this series.


I'll pick Tampa Bay in 7. Why? Because I can.

Well after the first two games khabby was dead last in GAA and SV% but what do you know... when Khabby gets back on track with saving 16 of 19 shots and two days later, 22 of 23 shots, the Lightning are right back in this series. Khabby has done well in the past and now that he no longer carries the Winnipeg curse with him, is capable of leading his team to the 2nd round

What a comeback by St. Louis and Khabibulin!!... possibly the worst two players at the start of the playoffs come out to be the best two and are the reason the Bolts were able to win 4 straight to come back and beat Jagr and the gang. Great win for the franchise!
