Free Washington Capitals vs. New York Ranger NHL Prediction:
The Capitals have been able to dominate the Rangers in their previous 10 games head-to-head with a 9-01 record. The over/under has gone 5-4 during the span.
In their previous 10 games against the Rangers, Washington has been able to find the net for an average of 3.60 goals per game while giving up 2.20 to New York.
The Capitals have been able to score a goal on seven of their 33 power-play opportunities during the 10-game stretch while allowing the Rangers to score five power-play goals on 31 opportunities.
I’m liking the Capitals to get the win on the road Wednesday night. They have better numbers skating on both ends of the ice as well as higher percentages both on the power-play and while skating a man down.
With the Rangers spending an average of over 235 minutes per game in the penalty box, I can see the power-play being a positive factor for Washington in this game. My money’s on the Capitals.
