NHL Betting: Boston Bruins v Washington Capitals

It's Game 7 between the Boston Bruins and Washington Capitals tonight, two more all or nothing deciders will follow tomorrow and all three games look set to be epic watches. The series has to be settled tonight, so both teams will be fired up to extend their seasons for a little while yet.


The Capitals have had an opportunity to progress already, Tyler Seguin's goal early in overtime on Sunday meant they would have to do it all over again but without the support of a home crowd.


Looking at this game, star winger Alex Ovechkin has been Washington's most productive player and often thrives in the big time moments, he is 2.80 to score at least one goal.


Goalies Tim Thomas and Braden Holtby have been duelling all series long and over the 6 games both have conceded an impressive 14 goals. Their similar stats remarkable when you consider 38 year old Thomas is the reigning Vezina Trophy holder for best Goalie in the league, whereas 22 year old Holtby had only played 21 NHL games prior to the start of these playoffs.


There has been plenty of opportunities for one of them to buckle, and it hasn't happened yet so 1.58 on fewer than 5.5 total goals is good value.


Boston start as big favourites at 1.90, with Washington back at 3.65, you have to favour the Bruins to win for all their experience and the fact they're playing at home. All along though the Caps have showed they aren't daunted by the task of knocking out the reigning Champions and they do possess the attacking capabilities to beat anyone.


Best Bet: Boston Bruins to win including overtime at 1.52.
