NHL PLAYOFFS FREE PICK: Take the OVER 4.5. The series is 1-0-4 OVER in New York. This game has pushed in the last two games in New York, with both scores ending up at 3-2. But this time the total is 4.5. Like Washington, New York also finds itself in a second Game 7 after going the distance with the Ottawa Senators in round one. The Rangers led Washington three different times in the best-of-seven, only to see the Capitals fight back each time. The home ice advantage should help the Rangers come out storming after a lackluster early effort against the Caps in Game 6. They stole game 5 after a late high stick double-minor on Joel Ward. If the Caps come out tentative, the Rangers will roll. Both have been cautiously aggressive in this one..
