Big game on the ice tonight as two heated rivals that also happen to be serious Stanley Cup contenders get together. I’ll definitely be watching this one and it’s also my daily free play.
5 PENGUINS at 6 CAPITALS
Take: PENGUINS +105
It doesn’t get much better than this in the NHL regular season. The Penguins and Capitals will renew hostilities tonight at Washington, and I think it’s fair to say that this is a game every hockey fan will want to watch.
Both Pittsburgh and Washington are arriving on fire for tonight’s battle. The Penguins have won five straight, while the Caps are riding a 6-0 run. Neither team is in perfect health, but one would think that unless the questionable guys are simply too beat up to skate, it will be all hands on deck for this one.
It’s all about getting an edge as far as the bet is concerned, and I’m giving the visitors a slight advantage tonight. They might be the reigning Stanley Cup champs, but I’m pretty sure the Pens are going to be looking to extract a bit of revenge from the prior meeting with the Caps. That was a very bad game for Pittsburgh as they were bombed out in a dominating 7-1 Washington win. That doesn’t automatically mean the Penguins are winners here, but I do believe it insures they’re going to be very focused.
As for the Capitals, they’ve kicked it into high gear lately, and there’s really no negatives I can use from a technical standpoint to make a case against them. So this is clearly more about playing on Pittsburgh in a game they’re really going to want, and being able to do so while they’re on a roll of their own, while also getting a bit of plus money thanks to the betting line. I’ll be watching from the outset and my play tonight will be on the Penguins.
