This Easter Epic rematch figures to be a tight-checking affair with excellent goaltending. The series also pits Barry Trotz against his old assistant/replacement and the team he led to its first Cup just two years ago. If anybody knows the Caps weaknesses, it's Barry Trotz. He has the Isles playing his brand of hockey. Which is to say grinding, effective, and winning. I can also see Varlamov outduel Holtby here.
This series is much closer to a pick 'em than the lines I've seen, which has been anywhere from Caps -140 up to Caps -180. So find the best value you can and take the New York Islanders to win the series (+160). And put half of that play on the Isles to win Game One (+120). Then sprinkle some Game One UNDER 5.5 (-140) on top.
Good luck to all.
