Our free play tonight takes us to Pittsburgh Pennsylvania as the Pittsburgh Penguins take on the Washington Capitals in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference second round game. All i am going to say is one name Kris Letang. The Penguins will be without their superstar defenseman tonight which will be huge in deciding the outcome of this game. The Capitals although they got a split out of the 2 games in Washington, they really didn’t play to their potential. It looked like they put it all together in Game 3 and even though they lost the game you can see that they got their confidence back and they were the much better team out-shooting Pittsburgh 49-23. Washington’s special teams have been excellent for most of the year although in this series they are only 1 for 10 on the Power Play. We are looking for that to change tonight. Their Penalty killing however has been excellent in the playoffs allowing only 1 goal in 33 attempts. With Letang and his big shot at the point of the Penguins Power play sitting on the sidelines tonight that stat is only going to get better for the Capitals. Washington is a small favorite of minus 110. Our system, with the Penguins being beat up on defense (Schultz is taking Letang’s spot and hasn’t played since Game 1 of the NYR series and Maatta has an upper body injury and might not even play) has Washington as a 135/130 favorite so we see value on the Capitals tonight.
