[QUOTE]Look, the goaltending situation certainly seems to favor the Bruins, and in the playoffs that's huge....there's always the chance that this AHL kid is the 2nd coming of Ken Dryden, of course, and if he gets in the Bruins' heads early, stealing one or (gasp) 2 games heading back to Washington, that would blow big time. My greater concern about this series is twofold: 1) I simply liked the match-up with Ottawa better. The B's really seemed in control of that team in the regular season, and while it's true that means little once the post season begins, I do think the Sens are a less dangerous team. 2) There is explosive offensive talent on the Caps--#8 is obvious, but if Semin gets hot and Knuble pounds away at the front of the net
, the B's could be in trouble trying to play catch-up in one or 2 goal games. Even Wideman is a threat on offense, altho' it's true his defensive liabilities kind of even that out. I'm not saying the Bruins are destined to lose this round, but I'm not as pollyanna at all about this match up as NAS, and maybe some others. If Wash. wins in 6, including one or 2 OT heartbreaker losses, I would not be the least bit surprised. As always, though--Go Bruins!!!!

Knuble? He of three goals since December 5th?
So, you're concerned with this matchup because you feel another team would be an easier victory (that makes no sense!) and because the Caps have one great offensive player, two above averages ones (I'll add in Backstrom for you) and MIKE KNUBLE.
The Caps fans are worried because they'd have rather seen Florida in the first round and because the B's have: Krejci, Lucic, Seguin, Bergeron, Marchand, Peverley, Chara, Rolston (really! Look at his stats!) and TIM THOMAS.
You worrying about Knuble is like Caps fans worrying about Paille.
