The Washington Capitals are playing for mere momentum purposes as they get set to take on the Arizona Coyotes on Saturday night.
As for the Coyotes, they too have nothing to play for as they have been eliminated from playoff contention.
Washington has wrapped up everything they possibly can wrap up here in the regular season.
From division, to conference, to best record in the NHL, they all belong to the Caps. Now, sustaining that momentum that has been there all season long is a goal as they get set for a back to back this week. The Capitals will be in Colorado on Friday, before heading to Arizona.
Goaltender Braden Holtby has been one of the many keys to success this season for the Caps. Holtby leads the league with 46 wins on the year. He too, is playing for something over the final games as he is trying to set the single season record for wins in a regular season that sits at 48.
Washington brings in one of the best road records in the NHL at 25-9-9-2.
Arizona hung around all season, but their recent 2 game losing streak has solidified their fate as a non playoff participant.
After winning 3 straight and looking like they had one last push in them, the Coyotes fell to Calgary and then Dallas to seal their fate. The defense went completely cold, allowing 9 goals combined in the 2 losses.
GAA has been a giant problem all season long for them too. On the season, Arizona has conceded nearly 3 goals per contest.
A lot of the blame falls on their defense, but G Louis Domingue hasn’t helped the cause much. Domingue has a GAA of 2.66 and let up the 5 goals against the Flames 2 games ago.

With not much to play for here, going by just pure talent and class level is a solid way too look at this.
Washington is far better on both sides of the puck and between the pipes, Holtby still wants that record.
