Capitals vs. Rangers Game 5 Pick
NEW YORK, NY (ATS Consultants) – Will the Rangers avoid being eliminated from the Eastern Conference Semifinals tonight when they host the Capitals at 7:00PM ET for Game 5?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book GT Bets, the Rangers are -160 money line favorites over the Capitals, who are +144 money line underdogs for tonight’s game. The total, meanwhile, is sitting at 5 goals.
It’s now or never for the New York Rangers on Friday as they enter Game 5 down 3-1. This is not impossible as the Caps blew a 3-1 season lead against Montreal in 2010. The Rangers knocked Washington out of postseason in 2012 and 2013 so they still have to get over that mental hump. Goaltender Henrik Lundqvist is 8-0 with a 0.99 goals-against-average in his last eight elimination games at home and should stand on his head tonight in victory.
