The Washington Capitals are the best team in hockey once again. Every time the Capitals make noise in the NHL, it always come up short — whether that is in the Eastern Conference final or semifinal. The Capitals have not made the Stanley Cup Final since 1998, though having a team led by Alexander Ovechkin for what seems like a million years. This could definitely be the year the Caps do it. First, Washington would have to get past the upstart Toronto Maple Leafs. Washington’s journey starts Thursday.

Prediction

Washington will win this series. Toronto is good, but the Maple Leafs are not going to knock off a team that totaled 118 points over the course of the season. Caps in five sounds like a solid prediction.
