We have afternoon hockey live from the Nation’s capital on December 2nd, as the Anaheim Ducks visit the Capital One Arena to face off against the Washington Capitals. Both teams were winners on Friday night, as the Ducks downed the Hurricanes 2-1, and the Capitals tamed the Devils 6-3.
The Ducks wrap up their five game road trip here on Sunday, as they have already gone 3-1 so far on the trip, adding to their not so impressive road record to up the tally to 5-7-0 away from the Pond. Anaheim hasn’t fared too well against these Capitals over the past few years, the head to head record over their past 10 meetings is 4-3-3.
The Ducks are averaging 2.29 goals per game this year. They’ve fared slightly better against the Capitals with a 2.80 goals per game average over the past 10 meetings. Projected goalie John Gibson comes into Sunday with a 10-8-4 record with a 2.47 GAA and a .929 save percentage.
This will be the second game of a real quick two game home stand for Washington before they head off to the desert south west to take on Vegas and Arizona next week on Tuesday and Thursday nights. The Caps have been pretty successful on home ice so far this year with a 7-3-2 record, and should be able to hold off the anemic Anaheim offense on Sunday afternoon.
Washington is averaging better than 3.5 goals per game this year, thanks in part to leading goal scorer Alex Ovechkin, who has 19 goals so far on the year. Projected starting goalie Braden Holtby has a 10-5-2 record with a 2.76 GAA and a .917 save percentage.
RWs T.J. Oshie and Tom Wilson are both listed as “questionable” for Sunday afternoon’s game.
