NHL Betting: Capitals vs Bruins Pick
2012-03-29

The Washington Capitals look to sneak into the NHL playoffs in the last run of the regular season, and a victory against the current champions Bruins, in Boston, could be an unexpected help for them. The Capitals take on the Bruins this Thursday at the TD Garden, at 7 PM ET.

The betting odds have the Bruins listed as 190-moneyline favorites, and the game’s total is 5½. The Capitals lost 5-1 against Buffalo (their direct opponent for the last spot in the playoffs) on Tuesday, and a win over the Bruins seems more as a dream than a reality.

“Now we’re going to start needing a little bit of help,” Capitals’ forward Mike Knuble said. ”You’ve got to set a target of trying to get four out of these five and finish extremely strong. And then even if you do that and hold up that end of the bargain, you’ve got to wait for a little bit of help somewhere else.”

“We got to do whatever it takes to win hockey games right now,” Washington center Matt Hendricks added. “We know what’s on the line, we know where we sit in the standings, and it’s going to be a desperate hockey team”.

Boston won their last game with a 5-2 result against the Lightning on Tuesday; they have won three in a row and five of the last six matches. Keep in mind, the game total has gone UNDER in 18 of last 25 games when the Bruins face Washington.

Take Boston in the moneyline and the under in the game total.
