Rickenbach NHL *10* Top Play OVER 5 goals -110 in Pittsburgh vs Washington @ 8:05 ET - Two defensemen are out for this game as the Capitals Brooks Orpik put a nasty hit (truly a dirty play) on the Penguins Olli Maatta and now Orpik has been suspended for 3 games and Maatta is out with concussion concerns. This, of course, effects the depth of each team in terms of defensemen. Additionally, Pens goalie Marc-Andre Fleury is still unlikely to play due to concussion issues. I am looking for the Capitals to respond tonight as they are pushing hard to earn back home ice after the Game 2 loss in Washington. The Caps will look to test Pens goalie Matt Murray early and often in this one. However, just as the Penguins did in Washington (40 shots on goal per game), I look for Pittsburgh to also put plenty of pressure on Braden Holtby. The Pens will be fired up in what will be an electric atmosphere on home ice for the Penguins in Game 3. 8 of Pittsburgh's last 9 home games have gone over the total. The Capitals have gone over in 7 of their last 12 road games. The under in game two was the first time in the last 6 meetings between these teams that they did not tally at least 5 goals. Washington has played 14 games this season with home loss revenge and only 4 of those 14 games stayed under the total. In home games with a posted total of 5 goals or less, the Penguins have gone 17-5 to the over this season! Look for Sidney Crosby to get on track in this series now that the Pens are on home ice while Evgeni Malkin and Company continue their strong start in this series. The result will be a high-scoring affair similar to Game One in this series. *10* OVER in Pittsburgh
