NHL Odds Preview on Rangers and Caps
The NHL Odds are against it most likely, but that didn’t stop a legend from doing it. Washington Capitals have allowed the New York Rangers back into their Eastern Conference semifinal. Alex Ovechkin guarantees that Washington will win Game 7 this Wednesday (7:30 PM ET, CBC).
It’s a bold statement; the Rangers have won back-to-back games to tie this series. They’re 8/5 favourites to win the East. The Capitals are 4/1.

Ovechkin’s guarantee may be non-binding, but at these odds, Washington might be worth a bet. Each game of this series has been decided by one goal. That includes Sunday’s 4-3 victory by the Rangers (+103 away).
In fact, every single New York win in these playoffs was by the slimmest of margins. That leaves the Blue-shirts down five betting units against the puck line at 3-8 ATS.
Capitals Have the NHL Odds in Their Favor
Washington supporters won’t have to worry about eating chalk in Game 7. However, the Capitals power play is a point of concern. They led the NHL during the regular season with a 25.3-percent success rate. In the playoffs the Caps are just 3-for-25 (12.0 percent) on the man advantage during the postseason.
And Ovechkin himself has been held without a point in four straight contests after finding the back of the net in Games 1 and 2.
