The Caps beat an excellent team and played it pretty even during the series. IMO, we beat the best team in the conference.
I have suffered through too many playoff disappointments to get too excited now, but it feels good to be among the last 8.
If the Caps and Holtby maintain this level of play, I like our chances.

I thought Holtby was solid in the series, but average last night (and fairly lucky).

Who is everyone hoping we have in the second round?
I'm kind of hoping for the Rangers.

NHL always plays highest vs. lowest seeds up to the conference championships. So,
If NYR wins tonight, we face NYR.
If OTT wins tonight, and NJD wins tonight, we face NJD.
If OTT wins tonight, and FLA wins tonight, we face PHI.
I feel pretty confident against either the Rangers or the Devils, but I really don't want to face the Flyers before we have to.
Also, I love Holtby, but one other thing: is there a goalie in existence who has worse rebound control? That one goal wasn't fluky. He didn't protect the rebound, and then a Bruin, albeit beating 3 Caps, poked it in. This Caps defense was FANTASTIC at rebound control, but Holtby needs to get on board - and if he does, he'll be fantastic.

You are right though, his weakness is that he gives up some juicy rebounds. He's good with his glove hand usually, but anything in his chest or legs are risky. I think that's a youth thing though.

Congrats to the Caps. I'm hoping my Flyers won't have to face Holtby anytime soon. Watched him play in Hershey when I had season tickets at the Giant Center, met the guy a few times, nice kid, great talent.
