NHL Free Pick:
Overall, the Caps hold the edge both offensively and defensively and also have a stronger power play unit. They have an edge in penalty killing, face offs and goaltending as well, although Ottawa has proven to have more discipline. That said, the Caps are struggling mightily and now is the time to cash in against them before they turn things around. Washington will be looking to avoid its ninth consecutive loss on Sunday and Alex Ovechkin is in the worst slump of his career. He has only two goals over his last 16 games and he’s taken 79 shots over that span. The Senators’ offense has shown signs of life lately, racking up 17 goals over their last four games. Daniel Alfredsson has a three-game goal-scoring streak entering this game and he’s playing with a ton of confidence. Our pick is Ottawa +106.
