On one hand, as a Caps fan, the Flyers are obviously Enemy No. 2, second only to the You Know Whos. Philadelphia's destruction of the Caps' hopes and dreams in OT of Game 7 after the Cinderella story of a 2007-08 season is just the most recent in a long history of hating the Flyers. Not to mention the general douchebaggotry of Philadelphia sports fans.
On the other hand, if the Flyers beat New Jersey and the Caps beat Montreal, we'll have a WSH-PHI showdown for the conference semifinals. I'd much rather face the Flyers in Round 2 than the Devils in the conference finals, for two reasons. First of all, Philly is the weaker team, and the Caps just barely avoided getting swept by NJD this season. Secondly, a chance to eliminate the Flyers personally would be redemption for the Caps, vindication for two years ago.
So what do you think?
Who would you rather see win their Round 1 playoff series?
