The Capitals took a 2-0 series lead against the Lightning tonight, with their second road win. The Caps have outscored the Lightning 10-4 through two games. Are we seeing the weakness of the Atlantic division? Or is this just an example of a team in form versus a team that has rested?
Winnipeg just played a brutal 7 game series against Nashville. The Jets dominated game 1 with a single day of rest 4-2 against a well rested Vegas Knights. The Knights cruised through the first two rounds with dominating series wins against Los Angeles and San Jose. Then Vegas rested for almost a week before the third round.
Regardless, a Winnipeg Washington Cup Finals will be a fun series to watch. I'm definitely rooting for Washington.
