The Bruins don't stay in funks for long, so there's a chance they get the win after losing 3 of their last 4 games. The Bruins have also won 7 of the last 10 games against the Capitals. With all that said, the Capitals have played themselves into the playoff conversation with wins in 6 of their last 8 games. The Caps have also seen 20 of their 36 wins come at home. The Capitals also shutout the Bruins back in February as near +250 underdogs. These last couple of weeks matter for the Capitals and at home, there's value with the plus money. Give me the Capitals.
