My selection is on the 'over' between San Jose and Washington at 7:05 pm et on Wednesday.

We've got the goaltending matchup we wanted with James Reimer expected between the pipes for the Sharks and Ilya Samsonov likely to get the nod for the Caps. Reimer checks in having allowed 25 goals over his last six games. Meanwhile, Samsonov will be making his first start since a week ago Sunday against Vancouver. He gave up three goals in that game and has given up 20 goals over his last six contests. There's more to this play than just the goaltenders, however. The Sharks average 3.8 goals per game on nine previous occasions coming off consecutive losses this season, as is the case here. The Caps on the other hand have allowed 3.2 goals on average when coming off consecutive 'under' results over the last three seasons (35-game sample size). Washington has also posted a 17-7 o/u record when coming off a game where four total goals or fewer were scored over the last two seasons, resulting in 6.6 total goals on average. When these two teams met back in mid-November in San Jose, the Caps skated to a 4-0 win in a game that cruised 'under' the closing total of 6.0. We're dealing with a more favorable total here and I'm anticipating a higher-scoring affair. Take the over (8*).
