Lesser of two evils? Pens? Caps?

While games against the top-tier teams show we are capable of winning big games, games like tonight's against Florida are more telling, because we probably won't play Jersey or Boston or Washington in the first round of the playoffs. We'll likely be playing a Pittsburgh or Florida or the Rangers. We beat Pittsburgh recently. We looked strong and ready. They were on a big win streak too. In reference to tonight, Florida shut us out about a month or so ago. These are the games that show our capabilities the most. If we can't get out of playoff round 1, than whether we can beat the Devils or Bruins is moot. We are fairly destined to be the 4-seed, and that means worrying about the Panthers and Pens. Pittsburgh has always been a problem for us, and Florida is quite unfamiliar. Which is the lesser of two evils? Maybe after tonight, we'll know who we'd rather play. Or maybe we should hope to fall to the six or seven seed and play the Caps, who we are better against anyway. I would rather host our first round playoff series, but if I had to choose between home vs. the Pens and away vs. the Caps, it gives me much pause to say I'd rather host.
