Randy’s Free Pick

The Washington Capitals have been road warriors as of late, and there's going to be value with cheap prices in their current form. However, I'm not ready to give up on Vegas despite a cold week, and these soft prices at home aren't something you find often. I like the Golden Knights to bounce back here.
