NHL PLAYOFFS FREE PICK: According to latest NHL trends Caps are 5-2 in the last 7 meetings in series at home,  5-2 in their last 7 after scoring 2 goals or less in their previous game, 21-9 in their last 30 Wednesday games and are 35-16 in their last 51 games as a home favorite. Rangers are 2-6 in their last 8 games following a win, 2-7 in their last 9 playoff games as an underdog and are 1-4 in their last 5 road games vs. a team with a home winning % of greater than .600. The Caps came back from a three-overtime loss last week so they can come back giving up a one goal lead with 6.6 seconds left in the game Monday. In one of the most closely contested matchups of the entire Stanley Cup playoffs, a high-sticking double minor by Joel Ward (who scored the game-winner in the Bruins’ series) has changed the entire complexion of the series. Washington needs to get on top early and continue to pound goaltender Henrik Lundqvist. Caps’ star winger Alex Ovechkin was held without a shot in the last game. He’ll make up for it in Game 6.
