Game 7 previews

NHL
Washington Capitals at New York Rangers:
The Rangers are undefeated in game sevens at home(4-0) all time. The Capitals are just 3-7 all-time in game sevens. The Capital's, with Alexander Ovechkin, are 2-3 in game sevens. Home teams are 86-57 all time in game sevens. The Capital's are looking to become the third team in this years Playoffs to overcome a 3-2 series deficit. No team has scored more than 3 goals in a game in this series.

Alexander Ovechkin has two goals and two assists in five game sevens all-time. He will have to be the key for the Capital's in this game, if they are to prevail. He is the best player for either team and he will need to be an offensive and defensive force for the Caps.
 
These two teams play the same exact way on the ice; blocking shots, hitting, and defensive style hockey. This has led to a great series so far. Every game, but game one has been a one goal game. The first goal of this game will be huge. Whoever gets it will most likely win this game.

Henrik Lundqvist, will need to be huge for the Rangers to win. The Vezina favorite has never defeated Washington in a playoff series. This is a huge game for him to prove that he can get it done in the playoffs. Marian Gaborik, also needs to show up for the Rangers in this game. His lack of effort in this series has been shameful. With a good game seven, he can put that talk to bed.

THE PICK: Washington 3 New York 2. I wanted to pick New York, because my picks have been unlucky this past week, in hopes of jinxing them.  But I really believe Washington will win this game, so that is the pick. Bet New York, because I'll probably be wrong.



NBA-
Nuggets at Lakers ODDS Lakers 5.5 point favorite OVER/UNDER- 194
Home teams have won 80% of game sevens all time. The Nuggets, are looking to become just the ninth team in NBA history to overcome a 3-1 series deficit. The Lakers will get Ron "Metta World Peace" Artest back from suspension in this game. The Lakers have played horribly the past two games. Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol specifically have looked out of sync. They will both need to play to their talent level, if the Lakers are to win this game and series. The Nuggets need to continue to play "run n gun" basketball, and not get caught up in the nerves that a game 7 brings. Javelle McGee and the "Manimal" Kenny Faried need to continue to control the paint area for the Nuggets, if they are to win this game.
THE PICK: Lakers 97 - Nuggets 90. Kobe will will his Lakers team to victory. Bynum and Gasol will play better, after getting called out by Kobe, after game 6. Look for the Nuggets to tighten up now that it is game 7. The Nuggets are a young team that doesn't have a lot of game 7 experience.
