We don’t know how the whole series will go, but It is imperative that the Capitals team get off to a fast start and we will look for them to do so in this one. They lost the first two games in the series with the Blue Jackets but won the last four and that momentum should help them here against the two-time defending champs. The visitors had a tough series with the Philadelphia Flyers and their offence has been very good in the postseason at the moment, but the Braden Holtby had a 1.91 GAA in that first round series and he should keep the Pittsburgh Penguins offence at bay in this one. Look for Over 1.5 Goals in the first period of this game.

The home side has had their issues on offence this year, but they did just score six goals on the Carolina Hurricanes and they have now averaged 3.42 GPG over their last seven clashes, so they may be coming out of their offensive funk.

The away team has been very good in the offence of late as they have averaged 3.89 GPG in their previous 10 games and the hosts have allowed 3.21 GPG over the same stretch. This game has all the makings of a low-scoring affair and we top it off with the fact that the Over is 11-2-3 the last 16 games in this series.
