Pick: Under 5.5
To start, I haven’t delved too much into the NHL to this point. It’ll be something that will come down the road, so this is just an interest play.
My choice on the under comes from the fact that aside from a somewhat fluky game from Fleury in game 1, the Golden Knights have given up an average of 2.18 goals over the last two series. The Capitals aren’t far behind with an average goals against of 2.23 over the past two series. In my eyes they will turn up the intensity tonight and I expect to see a 3-1, 4-1, 3-2 kind of game grinding it out.
Looking forward to see how it plays out. We can recap this when it’s over.
