Washington Capitals Betting Analysis

The Washington Capitals appeared to wave the white flag toward the NHL trade deadline, sending blueliners Dmitry Orlov and Erik Gustafsson to Boston and Toronto, respectively. However, the team is still hanging by a thread with the possibility of a playoff spot. They are five points behind the Isles but have a game to go. In the last seven, Washington is 4-2-1, with captain Alex Ovechkin having four goals and four assists in eight games since returning to the team following the death of his father.

They are 19th this season on goals per game, up from fourth two seasons ago, and 20th on power play. The goalies kept them in it, sixth in PK and 13th in goals allowed/contest.

The Caps have really struggled to string wins together, going 2 and 10 after one win in the last 12. The Unders have gone 5-1-1 in their last seven when they’ve been out for more than two days.

New York Rangers betting analysis

Despite being comfortably lined up as the third team in the Metro Division, the New York Rangers have stuttered lately, which is surprising. They brought in Vladimir Tarasenko and Patrick Kane just before the close but the squad has won 4-5-2 in the last 11 competitions. Three of their games and four of their last six have gone beyond regulations.

For the season, Rangers rank 15th in goals/game but defend solidly and concede the ninth fewest goals per game in the NHL.

New York has lost four of five after scoring two or fewer goals in the previous game. In the last six home games for Rangers, the score is 5-1.
