Why Bet on the Washington Capitals?

In this series, D.C. should probably be up 3 games to 1. Washington had every chance to win the last match, but fell to the Panthers in overtime. How good of a chance did the Caps have to win the game? T.J. Oshie opened the scoring with a goal at 7:15 in the first period.

Not only that, but Washington’s Evgeny Kuznetsov gave Washington a 2-1 lead at 9:13 in the third period. Florida scored the tying goal at 17:56 in the third period. The Capitals know how close they were to going up 3-1. They won’t allow Florida the chance to score a late tying goal in Game 5.

Why Bet on the Toronto Maple Leafs?

The Panthers opened the series with a terrible performance. They bounced back with a 5-1 victory over Washington. Then in Game 3, Florida again played awful, falling to the Capitals 1-6. But in Game 4, facing the Caps on D.C.’s ice, Florida came up huge. It’s not often a road team ties a match with around 2 minutes left in the third period.

Back on their ice, the Panthers should have no trouble winning the key Game 5. Florida’s offense is the best in the NHL while Washington goalies have played well, but neither can stand up to the Panthers’ firepower.
