Free NHL Pick: Washington Capitals @ NY Rangers
May 7 2012

Capitals and Rangers are going to challenge each other at MSG in the 5th game of the series tonight. The series is tied at 2 a-piece. None of this teams have been able to take advantage of playing on bome-ice as each of them won one on road and lost one at home. So, this is not a series to make easy predictions. We still try...

When you look at the first four games between the teams, there are two facts. one of them is that each them is defending first, they don't play too offensive. Another fact is that Capitals have been better at finishing on scoring chances. Players like Backstrom, Ovechkin and Chimera love shooting the puck hard and they are so good at it. At that point, comes the goaltender of the Rangers. Lundqvist is still the best goaltender in playoffs with his 1.64 GAA against Capitals. With a goaltender that allows 1.64 goals per game, Rangers are still struggling to win this series. They need much more from like Callahan. The absence of Dubinksy has been a major problem for the Rangers. Dubinsky is one of the best players in the league in assists and Rangers could have used him against the Capitals.

I will still go with Rangers in this game.They have not been to bad in any of the four games and I still don't think it's the season of Capitals, despite the predictions of some other handicappers. I really don't see them winning this series. If only if the Rangers can stop Chimera and if they don't repeat their poor performance in the second game of the series (in which Gaborik was pretty bad) they should win this 5th game.
