With every game of the Stanley Cup Playoffs set to be telecast in the United States by the NBC Sports Group, it gives fans a chance to see the entire 2013 postseason.
Not only are they working, they're also fans of the game, and while they know first-hand how exciting the playoffs can be, they admit there are a few series they'll be keeping a closer watch on. The most popular choice from the Eastern Conference appears to be how Rocket Richard winner Alex Ovechkin and the third-seeded Washington Capitals will fare against the sixth-seeded New York Rangers.
"I think that Rangers-Washington is going to be really interesting," Roenick said during a conference call Monday. "The Rangers finished up a little bit shaky … and Washington probably is the hottest team in the League right now, with the hottest player in the League [Ovechkin]. It's going to be up to [Rangers goalie] Henrik Lundqvist, if he can shut down Ovechkin. That series is going to be extremely tight and low-scoring."
