The Edmonton Oilers are playing the better hockey at both ends, and the Washington Capitals are watching things unravel a bit. However, the Capitals still have the talent to turn things around, and they’re still playing with effort defensively. You don’t often get the Caps in the underdog role at home. I’m not ready to give up on the Capitals just yet. Give me the plus money.
