Good luck on Hudson-I'm the first to admit I'm not a hockey guy as far as wagering. I enjoy the sport but have never had much luck handicapping. Have to agree with leaning towards your capitals play. Washington beat the Bruins three of four this season. Interesting stat I read, teams that win the head-to-head regular-season, when matched against said team beat them in the playoffs 77% of the time. That's an amazing statistic to me.
One thing I did notice, these lines on the four NHL games are up and down like I've never seen before. Down $.30, then up 50 or $.60, it's amazing. You don't even see that the NFL.
