Has the championship hangover finally caught up to Alex Ovechkin and the Capitals? Washington is in the midst of a 7-game slide that they hope broken up thanks to the all-star break. It won’t be easy for Washington to get their 1st win in over three weeks as the Calgary Flames come to town Friday.
Calgary is actually a road favorite Friday night at the Capital One Arena. It makes sense why as the Flames sit atop the Western Conference and had won 8 of 9 before the Winter break. The Flames have the #2 scoring defense to go with the #7 defense in goals allowed which is a nice combo to say the least.
The game with the Capitals will also be Calgary’s 1st since the all-star hiatus. Both teams may come out a bit rusty after having not played in over a week. The Flames net minder definitely hopes to pick up where he left off, posting an 8-0-2 record over his last 10.
The Capitals looked pretty bad to wind down the first half of the season as their 7 game losing streak is the current longest in the NHL. Washington hopes that taking 9 days off for the all-star break is the battery recharge the returning Stanley Cup champs needed as they are now ready to focus on another title run.
Calgary’s offense has been looking forward to this game for over a week now as Washington has given up 30 goals in their last five games. Braden Holtby is slumping hard between the pipes having allowed 16 goals total in his last three games.

Washington will have the advantage of the all-star break and the fact that they are back home where the Caps have gone 13-8-3 this year. Oddsmakers have given the Capitals at least a fighting chance with the line of WAS -103.
How do you go against Calgary right now however as the Flames are 8-1-1 over their last 10? Rittich has been dominant in net but is the team fighting rink rust having to go on the road right away after the break.
