Oddsmakers from online sports book SBGGLOBAL.com have made the Capitals –116 on the money line against the Lightning, who are +107 on the ML. The over/under total for tonight’s game is currently set at 5 goals.

Tampa Bay has shocked the masses by taking the first two games of this series on the road. They beat Washington 4-2 as a +156 money line underdog in Game 1 and 3-2 in overtime in Game 2 as a +156 money line underdog. Despite being at home tonight, the Lightning once again find themselves as a betting dog.

Tampa Bay got goals from Steve Downie, Sean Bergenheim, Dominic Moore and Steven Stamokos in Game 1 of this series, while Vincent Lecavalier had two goals (including the game winner in overtime) in Game 2. Martin St. Louis also had a goal and an assist in the Lightning’s OT win on Sunday.

NHL Playoff Free Pick: The value would seemingly be in the Lightning tonight getting favorable juice at home after winning two straight on the road. But you know the Capitals are going to turn it around at some point and at –116, that’s not a bad price to bet that their misfortunate changes tonight. According to latest NHL trends, Washington is 10-2 in its last 12 trips to Tampa Bay and 19-7 in its last 26 meetings overall against the Lightning. The road team is also 4-0 in the last four meetings between these two squads, so look for the Capitals to get things ironed out tonight.
