The Caps exorcised old demons by not blowing a 3-1 lead in a playoff series and all the sudden they are the team to beat as the highest seed left in the Eastern Conference. Peter Bondra's condition looms big over the series that also features a real goaltending duel with two hot goalies. Olie Kolzag vs. Damian Rhodes, both have played brilliantly but Olie the Goalie's experience might give him an edge.
