Washington Capitals vs New York Rangers. The NHL pick for this game is the New York Rangers. As is often the case with matchups between the New York Rangers and the Washington Capitals, this game is expected to be a closely contested affair. Both teams are evenly matched, and it could be anyone’s game. Look for goalies Igor Shesterkin and Darcy Kuemper to take the net for their respective teams, which should lead to plenty of high-quality scoring opportunities but limited scoring overall. With that in mind, the under could be a smart bet for this game. In the end, the Rangers are predicted to come out on top with a final score of 3-2.
