Philadelphia Flyers vs. Washington Capitals Predictions

Score Prediction Captials 3 Flyers 2

Washington's had two very eventful victories over the Rangers this week and for the range of emotions those games brought, it's hard not to wonder if one of those “flattish” efforts is coming from the Caps. Shouldn't be too much to fear against a Philly team playing out the string – and the Caps finish with all three remaining games at home – and I'm not sure the Caps have the energy to get involved in any more extracurricular activities.

Making a case for an 'under' is a bit tougher considering the head-to-head series is 5-1 O/U this year, but Philly doesn't care about the result, and Washington would love an early lead and lock things down from there. The season series history is probably behind this looking like a good buy-low spot on a situational 'under' where energy from either side is going to be hard to find.
