The Washington Capitals forced a game 7 against the Pittsburgh Penguins last night with a tremendous performance.

The Penguins looked extremely poor all game. That turnover by Ron Hainsey was absolutely brutal which led to the 2nd goal – with all the experience he has it’s crazy that he gave that one up.

The Capitals have now won two in a row and will head to the Verizon Center for a highly anticipated Game 7 tomorrow night.

Tonight we’ve got a Game 6 as the Senators visit New York hoping to wrap it up.

It’s been a fascinating series between the two. The games in Ottawa have been incredibly tight, close games which the Sens have won. However the games in New York have been dominant performances from the Rangers.

That sort of thing can actually make it more dangerous for the Rangers. They may be more focused on Game 7 than this one. It’s going to be a very interesting game.

Let’s get to it:

Senators vs Rangers Game 6 Betting Tips:

Graeme: A nice and boring one from me tonight – Rangers to score first.

They’ve scored first in all 5 games previously be it in New York or Ottawa. I’d like to think Ottawa would want to frustrate them and try and sit back a bit initially and see if they survive the expected initial Rangers surge.

Honestly that’s all I’m basing it on. If you want more…in the regular season Rangers scored first in almost 80% of their games which is one of the highest in the league.

Works for me. And although I’m not betting against the Senators for the rest of the playofs, based on the first two home games I think Rangers -1.5 would be a good bet at the 2.90 odds.

Americans bet it at Bovada. Everyone else can place it at Bet365.

Scott: The Sens won a huge game on Saturday night tying it up with less than 2 minutes left to force OT where Turris scored for the Sens and a 5-4 win and a 3-2 series lead.

Lundqvist is money when he’s at home and his team is facing elimination.  He’s 10-1 over the last 11 games at MSG with a GAA just over 1.00.  He will need to back those numbers up for tonight’s game.

It would seem like a safe pick to bet on the Rangers but the odds back that up so I’ll again be going with a player prop.

Derek Stepan has been good for the Rangers in this series getting a goal, 3 assists and registering a point in 4 of the 5 games.  If the Rangers are to avoid elimination they will need players like him to show up.

Derek Stepan to get a point for 1.80 odds at 888 Sports. Americans check out the player props at Bovada.
