The Rangers have been an excellent home team. In the regular season, they had the 5th best home record in the league. On the road however, they were below .500 and have struggled at the Verizon Center in recent history. Gaborik's triple OT winner was I believe their last win in 7 tries in the postseason vs. the Capitals. The Rangers have been outplayed significantly at ES at the Verizon Center. History, stats, a lot of variables point to the Caps being the favorites. As a better, I will definitely be inclined to pick them.
