Free NHL prediction: Washington Capitals @ NY Rangers

April 28, 2012

I was wrong about Washington Capitals against last year's champions Boston Bruins. I watched all games between Capitals and Bruins and before the 7th game, it pretty much always looked like Bruins was the better team on ice. However, their dominance in puck possession was not enough and actually it is never enough. Those who dominate a game with more possession, more face-off wins or even more shots, do not always win. I watched last night's match between Phoenix Coyotes and Nashville Predators. pick won last night but the game was not near what I had expected it to be. Coyotes who had a pretty good 40 minutes and who led the game three times were almost destroyed by the Predators in 3rd period and also in overtime. What happened in the end? Predators were able to tie the game late in 3rd but despite outshooting Coyotes 20-1 at a point in overtime, they lost in the end. Coyotes goaltender Mike Smith was amazing yes but then it all comes down to one aspect of hockey. Scoring.

If you fail to score, you get nothing in hockey. And this is exactly how Capitals beat the Bruins. Caps have sharp shooting players like Laich, Ovechkin and Backstrom. I can not say the same for the Rangers. If it wasn't for Ottawa Senators who blew a fantastic chance to finish it off in 6th match in Ottawa, Rangers wouldn't have been here. Their top scorer Marian Gaborik has scored only 1 goal so far and they didn't really impress me except for Lundqvist who has an amazing 1.70 GAA in playoffs so far. That's partially due to Senators offense too.

At around +140, Capitals victory is very valuable and I will go with the Capitals in this one. The UNDERDOG  is not even a real UNDERDOG in my opinion. I wouldn't be surprised at all if Capitals beat the Rangers today so, my money is on Caps.
