posted at 4/26/2012 12:43 AM EDTFor the last 6 weeks of the regular season it was Boston vs. Ottawa in the first round. Looked like that was as big a lock as Detroit/Nashville. On the last day of the season the seeds changed and the B's now have to face a team with 3 of the top talents on the planet when they feel like it. I don't think they ever really had a plan on how to attack Washington and didnt realize how physical or committed to Defense they would be.
