Pittsburgh Penguins at Philadelphia Flyers N/A

Watch out Rangers! The Penguins have already left Philly in their rearview mirror in the standings and are now just two points behind New York for first place in the Atlantic Division and the Eastern Conference.

Pittsburgh has won a whopping 11 in a row and the team has scored 15 goals in its last three. In fact, the Pens have won three consecutive games this week 5-1, including on Thursday at the Rangers and on Saturday at the Devils.

To make matters even better, Sidney Crosby is finally back from a concussion. He had not played since December 5 but returned to notch two assists in his first game back and three more on Saturday.

"As far as seeing the things you want to see and getting the little habits that you're used to in a certain spot, that's going to take time," Crosby said. "But I have a comfort level. Feel like I can make plays out there."

Pick: Penguins

Washington Capitals at Chicago Blackhawks (-150, 5.5)

Look for the Capitals to play like a desperate team on Sunday. They are just two points ahead of Winnipeg for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference after losing at the Jets 3-2 on Friday.

“We really needed the points in the standings to create some separation,” right wing Troy Brouwer said. “But now it’s going to make this race a little bit tighter.”

Washington may be able to get those points against Chicago. The Caps have won the last three meetings between the two squads and six of the last seven. However, they have yet to face each other this season.

The Blackhawks will be shorthanded for Sunday's showdown. Center Jonathan Toews (29 goals, 28 assists) is still out with an upper body injury and will not return for at least another week. Goalie Ray Emery is questionable due to illness and thus Corey Crawford will likely mind the net. Defenseman Steve Montador (14 points) is doubtful with a concussion and left wing Michael Frolik (14 points) is questionable because of the flu.

Pick: Capitals

Chicago vs. Washington Picks & Predictions
By Atssportsline.com

The Washington Capitals are looking to bounce back after losing to Winnipeg on Friday after winning four straight. Chicago has won three of their last four games and hosts the Caps at 7pmET on Sunday

ODDS: Oddsmakers have installed the total at 5.5 goals, while Chicago is a -150 favorite. Washington enters play with a 36-29-6 overall record and is 13-19-3 on the road. They are also 34-33 OVER this year and 20-14-1 OVER on the road. Mewahile, Chicago is 39-25-8 overall and 24-7-5 at home. They are also 19-16-1 OVER at home and 36-35-1 OVER overall.

LINE MOVEMENT: The  total has remained the same (5.5 goals), while the Blackhawks opened as –155 money line favorites and moved to -150. The Caps’ odds have remained at +135..

ATS NHL FREE PICK: Take the OVER 5.5 Washington/Chicago. According to NHL trends,  The Caps are 4-1 OVER last 5 road games and 4-1 OVER last 5 vs. Western Conference. The Blackhawks are 3-0-1 OVER last 4 home games, 7-2 OVER last 9 home games vs. a team with a road winning % of less than .400, 6-2 OVER last 8 vs. Eastern Conference and 5-1 OVER last 6 meetings against the Capitals. The bottom line is that Caps are a different team on the road then they are at home. They tend to be a little more carefree on offensive end where they are more conservative at home. They did put up 5 goals on the Islanders two games ago in a 5-4 shootout win. Chicago beat St. Louis 4-3 in a shootout in their last home game. Washington is 22nd in the league in defense, allowing 2.8 goals per game. Star winger Alex Ovechkin leads the way with 53 points for Washington, while Chicago is led by Marian Hossa who has 70 points.

SUNDAY's ATS NHL FREE PICK:GO OVER 5.5 Washington/Chicago.
