    So they actually think that the Rangers who seem totally dysfunctional and more interested in stopping Wilson than in actually winning games will beat out the Caps. (Okay, they have Shestyorkin in goal)

    All odds seem to be pointing to a close race for the third playoff spot, with Rangers and Capitals fighting it out for the final spot. Further amplification of the importance of the opening game.

    I think Winnipeg will challenge Colorado for the central division lead.
