After a wild day of hockey yesterday, the Capitals jumped up to the number seven seed and will play the Bruins in the first round. For the last month it looked like the Bruins would be playing the Ottawa Senators in the first round of the 2012 playoffs, but after Ottawa’s loss yesterday and wins by both the Panthers and Capitals that all changed. Now the Bruins will have to face an opponent that I think is much tougher to beat than the Senators. Boston won only one game this year against Washington, but the playoffs are a whole knew season. I still believe the Bruins will win this series, but it will probably take six or seven games. Hopefully they can do it and continues the hunt for another Stanley Cup.
