As it turned out, former Montreal GM Bob Gainey assembled a pretty darn good team. Perhaps he did not deserve all the criticism he received earlier this season?
If this eight seed can knock off the number one seed, the City of Montreal will explode. Every fire department throughout the province of Quebec is on stand by just in case. And the Caps will have some bigtime soul searching to do if they choke out in the opening round.
But look for the home team to be heavy favorites in this one.
