Capitals at Bruins: What Bettors Need to Know
By Covers.com

Washington Capitals at Boston Bruins (-200, 5)

THE STORY:
The Washington Capitals failed to finish off the Boston Bruins in Game 6 of their Eastern Conference quarterfinal, resulting in a seventh and deciding game on Wednesday. Tyler Seguin scored his first goal of the series in overtime to lift the Bruins to a 4-3 victory Sunday afternoon. Both clubs will be more rested heading into the final contest. After playing Games 4, 5, and 6 within a four-day span, players have two days off before the final battle in Boston.

ABOUT THE CAPITALS: Goaltender Braden Holtby has posted an impressive .935 save percentage while playing two-time Vezina Trophy winner Tim Thomas to a standstill in his first NHL playoff series. "Seeing him just continue to excel under the pressure is something I didn't really expect. He's really just a lot mentally stronger than I thought," Capitals forward Jay Beagle said. “The pressure does not seem to affect him at all.” Surprisingly, the offensive pressure hasn’t been on All-Star Alex Ovechkin this series. Ten different players have accounted for the Capitals’ 14 goals.

ABOUT THE BRUINS: The Bruins are facing their fifth Game 7 in their last six playoff series. Boston became the first team in NHL history to win three Game 7s in one playoff year during their Stanley Cup run last season. The Bruins prevailed in seven games over Montreal, Tampa Bay and Vancouver. Center Patrice Bergeron didn’t practice Tuesday. The forward was banged up in Game 5 last Saturday and saw limited minutes in Game 6. The faceoff specialist was the only Bruin missing from practice, but he will not miss this game.

TRENDS:

*Road team is 4-1 in the last five games.
*Under is 4-1 in Bruins' last five games playing on two days' rest.
*Under is 7-2 in the last nine meetings in Boston.
*Capitals are 4-1 in their last five games as road underdogs.

OVERTIME:

1. The Bruins are 12-10 in Game 7s, while the Capitals own a 2-7 record in seventh games.

2. Washington has allowed just two Boston goals on 20 man-advantage opportunities.

3. Each contest has been decided by one goal. It's the first time in league history the first six games of a series have been decided by a single marker.

Washington at Boston

It's been a dogfight from start to finish, one-goal games in the first six of this best-of-seven series with 3 'Over' 3 'Under'. And now it boils down to a decisive game-7 on TD Garden ice surface in Boston Wednesday night. Both teams are heading to Game-7 with confidence. Boston knows all about Game 7's. The Bruins won three of them last year on the way to hoisting Lord Stanley's Cup. Capitals have won 4-of-5 in Boston this season including 2-of-3 in this building during these playoffs. It'll come down to goaltending, Capitals rookie Breden Holtby has been solid in post season with his 2.18 GAA, .935 save % but asking the netminder to outplay Tim Thomas (2.18 GAA, .922 SV%) in his own back yard maybe a stretch. Champs haven't lost three consecutive home games all season. Look for Thomas to get hot again as he did last season in Game 7's stopping all but 3 of 98 pucks flying his way recording two shutout in the process. No Stanley Cup hangover casualty JUST YET for the Bruins entering 25-15-2-2 on home ice, 15-5 last twenty as a playoff chalk.
