Two of their last three games at home went over. Washington will try and continue to play a counter-punching style but the Rangers have to get more pressure on rookie goaltender Braden Holtby, who has been great at times but also has given up some soft goals. The Caps have struggled at home due to the pressure of winning the big win, while the Rangers have struggled to beat Washington on the road. The Rangers will come out firing tonight and the Caps will need to pressure Henrik Lundqvist to take a 2-1 lead.
