Playoff Game Preview – Capitals @ Rangers

Washington Capitals Regular Season Record: 48-23-11

Washington let the Rangers back into this series as they took eight penalties in Game 3 and lost by a slim 3-2 margin. The Capitals are clearly the better of these two teams and that will show tonight.

New York Rangers Regular Season Record: 44-33-5

New York clawed their way back into the series but for how long is anyone’s guess. The wear and tear of the vicious stretch run they endured, just to make the playoffs, is now starting to show.

NHL Playoff Betting Capitals vs Rangers

While some were calling for a Capitals sweep, we figured this series would go longer than that. The Rangers can guarantee at least one more home game with a win tonight.

A Capitals win tonight means this series should be over in five games as the scene shifts back to the Verizon Center in Washington on Saturday.

Take the Capitals over the Rangers at +1.5 (-330) on the puck line!
