Total: -120/+5 Over
This is a 10* TOTAL OF THE WEEK on the OVER between the Washington Capitals and the Pittsburgh Penguins.
This series is all tied up as it heads back to Pittsburgh, the Pens would manage a 4-3 OT win on Thursday. Washington took Game 1, 2-1 on Saturday. Pittsburgh is now gunning for its third win in four home games in the postseason and fourth in five overall matchups vs. the Capitals. The Pens have to be feeling pretty confident today, especially with 21-year old rookie Matt Murray back between the pipes to make a sixth consecutive start, he’s 4-1-0 with a tiny 1.74 GAA in that stretch. Washington goaltender Braden Holtby though has struggled with the Penguins’ powerful attack, he’s allowed five goals over the first two games, after allowing five in six games vs. the Flyers in the first round. So far the Captials’ stars have been stymied, but note that Washington has seen the total go OVER the posted number in seven of 11 this year in trying to revenge a home loss vs. an opponent, while Pittsburgh has seen the total go OVER in 17 of 22 home games this season when the total in the contest is set at five. We’re expecting a wide open affair and for this one to sneak OVER late.
