As far as I remember form anatomy in high school it is almost the same thing.

They are not the same thing but they communicate with each other. If you were to trace a special molecule from the blood plasma, you would find in the blood, then in intercellular fluid, then in the lymph and then in the blood again

The liquid part of them are similar, that's why they can communicate to each other, passing in and out of cell membrane. However, of course there are some special molecules in each of them.
