Nahhh....Caps are better than the Jets but I sure don't worry about facing them or any other team in the East in the playoffs. You either bring your "A" game against a "B-rated" team or get eliminated is about it all comes down to in the playoffs, despite all the over-analysis, media hype and everything else.
Caps can score, but WPG is the only team in the SE with a winning record -- albeit just barely -- against the Atlantic and NE division, and have been taking it to teams in their own division as least as well as the Caps. In terms of scoring, they have a few more contributors and are probably a little better defensively. That said, I have seen more Jets hockey and less Caps hockey this year.
Caps also have a tougher last few games than the Jets do, and they do meet once more before the end of the season.
