[sc:NHL240 ]A can’t-miss Game 7 is on tap later tonight at Madison Square Garden as the Capitals and the Rangers play the last game of their Eastern Conference semifinal series. Braden Holtby (6-6, 1.72 GAA, .944 SV% this postseason) is pressured to come up with a great performance tonight, as he’ll be in between the pipes again following the Caps’ 4-3 loss in Game 6 on Monday. The Rangers, meanwhile, will have tried and tested goalie Henrik Lundqvist on the other end of the ice. Lundqvist is 5-1 in his last six starts in a Game 7, coming up with exceptional numbers of 1.00 GAA and .965 SV% in those outings.
New York (-170) wins, 2-1.

After regaining their moxie by crushing Memphis 101-84 on Monday, the Warriors fly back home, eager to take a 3-2 lead in this Western Conference semifinal series. The Warriors are tough to beat on any court, but are extra difficult to handle when they’re playing at Oracle Arena. They are 19-1 in their last 20 home games. The lone loss on that record, however, was dealt by the gritty Grizzlies, who beat Golden State as a road team in Game 2 of this series, 97-90. Golden State, which is averaging 95.2 points these playoffs (110.0 PPG in the regular season), is 5-5 ATS in its last 10 games against the Grizzlies. Memphis, meanwhile, is putting up 91.5 PPG on 42.9 percent shooting this postseason.
Golden State (-9.5) wins, 104-96.
