Scott "The Bulldog" Rickenbach NHL Game #59 Thursday Free Pick OVER the total in Washington Capitals vs Tampa Bay Lightning @ 8:05 ET - Only 2 of Tampa Bay's last 8 games have totaled less than 6 goals. Every game so far in this series has gone over the total and I see no reason for that to change here. You know the Bolts are going to bring another strong effort as they can't afford to drop into a 3-1 hole and their speed and skill in the offensive zone is what makes the Lightning so dangerous. As for the Capitals, they had scored 4 or more goals in 8 of their 11 prior games before being held to 2 goals in Game 3. Washington should respond here and be able to answer TB goal for goal in a true "barnburner". Only 6 of the Capitals last 18 games have resulted in an under - just a 33% under rate! The over is 20-6 when Tampa Bay is trailing in a playoff series. Free Pick OVER the total in Washington

Take the money-line on the Washington Capitals versus the Tampa Bay Lightning. Washington (59-31-7) looks to bounce-back from their 4-2 loss to the Lightning in Game Three of this series on Tuesday. The Capitals have then won 5 of their last 7 games after a loss by at least two goals on their home ice. Washington has also won 20 of their last 27 games when playing with same-season revenge. Tampa Bay (63-27-3) has still lost 37 of their last 54 games in Washington against the Capitals despite their Game Three win. This Lightning has also lost 4 of their last 5 games in the Eastern Conference Finals. Take Washington with the money-line. Best of luck — Frank.

Thursday NHL Free play. My selection is on the 'under' between Tampa Bay and Washington at 8:10 pm et on Thursday.

While Game 3 in this series ultimately resulted in a 'push' as far as the total goes (assuming you were able to play it at '6'), the majority of that contest was played fairly tight to the vest. I expect a similar story to unfold on Thursday.

This is obviously a pivotal game in this series. The Lightning can ill afford to fall into a 3-1 hole, even with two of the next three games coming at home. Keep in mind, home ice hasn't been kind to the Bolts in this series as they dropped both Games 1 and 2.

Meanwhile, the Capitals don't want to give the Lightning any more positive momentum and would certainly hate to squander that original 2-0 series lead, on home ice no less.

While Tampa Bay goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy bounced back nicely on Tuesday night, Caps netminder Braden Holtby regressed, looking like he was fighting the puck for much of the game. Look for both goaltenders to turn in solid showings on Thursday as this one cruises 'under' the number. Take the under (8*).

Sean is going for FOUR IN A ROW in NHL playoff action as he targets his 10* Eastern Conference Final Game of the Year on Thursday night! Plus he's back to improve on his modest 8-5 (+2.3 units) MLB totals run with a 10* TOP RATED Total Dominator; hop on board now!
