I'm not in that locker room. Do I can go ahead and look ahead at the Rangers as the likely first round opponent. New York is just 4 points ahead of us in the standings, and Ottawa good a game in hand. With Lundqvist out 2-3 weeks there is a good chance we will pass them, too. Not that it matters, but certainly will stifle a lot of that talk.
I maintain that any of the potential first round matchups are very much winnable. Boston, Toronto, NYR, Montreal (though I'm not sure how that would work barring a collapse by both teams) are all teams that Ottawa can beat in 7 games. My expectations are that they win at least a round this year.
We're going all the way, spader. All. The. Way!!!!
