Enough talk about which team has the better offense, who is the best player in the world stuff, You take Crosby and Ovechkin and fuse them together to create one player the end result is Evgeni Malkin. It's no secret the Caps are loaded up front. They have very capable goalscorers, i'm not so sure they are as deep as Philly was. Coming off a 7 game series against one of the worst offenses in the league makes me think the defense isn't quite where it needs to be, and don't say the beat the best goalie in the league, Game 5 and 6 were not Lundqvists best games that's for sure. Maybe Backstrom could puck a few more behind his own goalie to help us out a bit. I don't see the Washington defense being able to contain the likes of Crosby/Malkin/Staal enough to get 4 wins. I also don't see Varlamov being able to shut down the Pens like he did the Rangers.
