Game 6 – Capitals vs. Penguins

The Caps survived Game 5 and scored a 4-2 victory to send tonight’s matchup to Pittsburgh. Washington is trying desperately to shed their reputation for being a terrific regular season team but a choker in the playoffs. The oddsmakers are dealing the home team Penguins as anywhere from -115 to -124 favorites in tonight’s matchup but we believe they have the wrong favorite. Of course, the Penguins boast a superb 34-11 mark on their home ice but the Caps understand there is no tomorrow and looked sharp in their 4-2 win on Saturday. 

The Pens hold a narrow advantage in scoring (16-13) but we see the Caps’ defense tightening up and making this a defensive struggle which would naturally favor the underdogs. Include the Caps in your NHL picks and look forward to watching the series finale in Washington on Wednesday night.
