The New York Rangers are starting to look more and more like the team we expected to see this season and they've had no recent success playing on the end of a back to back. The Washington Capitals can't do anything wrong and those who have followed them over the years know they get on one of these runs every season. You just step away and watch the tickets cash. The Rangers also don't win in Washington. You can argue this line should be a lot steeper. Give me the Caps and the cheap price.
