3-unit Play Take #51 Washington Capitals over Pittsburgh Penguins (7:35pm EST) The Washington Capitals have been labeled as chokers in the playoffs for years and they deserve it. They haven't gotten past the second round of the postseason since 1998 despite qualifying for the playoffs 12 times. It looked like it was going to be another year of choking for the Caps when they fell behind 2-0 in the series versus Columbus. But the Capitals responded with four straight victories to come out on top. In Game 1 of this series, the Caps blew a late 2-0 lead by giving up three consecutive goals in the third period. The choke label came back. But Washington responded with a big effort in Game 2 as they won 4-1. This team is grittier than the Caps teams in the past. They don't have as much firepower as some of their past teams, but they've played through some adversity and I like their chances to win this series. I see value at this price in Game 3 as well. Evgeni Malkin is still questionable for Pittsburgh and they looked out of sorts in the last game. Take the Caps.
