A pair of solid defensive teams meet on the ice in Pittsburgh and the last seven meetings between them we've seen a perfect 7-0 UNDER the total. Washington comes in on a 4-0 run to the UNDER with the offense scoring only 5 goals in those games, getting shut out twice. Coach Dale Hunter emphasizes more of a defensive posture for the Capitals than former coach Bruce Boudreau did. In fact, Washington has failed to crack the 25-shot mark in any of the past seven contests. The UNDER is 8-2 in the Capitals’ last 10 games when playing on one day of rest and 20-8-1 UNDER the total in their last 29 against the Atlantic division. Pittsburgh can also bring it defensively at 4-0-1 UNDER the total in the Penguins’ last five vs. a team with a winning record as well as 13-5-5 UNDER in their last 23 games playing on one day’s rest. Look for another slow-paced game with few shots or goals, so play this one UNDER the total.
