It’s the first weekend of NHL games with a full slate on Saturday. One of those games is a showdown at the Capital One Arena between the Montreal Canadiens and the Washington Capitals.
The Capitals have won the last two games played between the two teams.
The Montreal Canadiens have high hopes for this season, and although their first game didn’t get out to a great start they still ended the game victorious.
It took all the way till the shootout, but they beat the Buffalo Sabres by a final of 3-2.
To win this game the Canadiens need to find a way to slow down the top couple of lines of the Washington Capitals. The Capitals had no problems scoring goals in the first game and they can’t let this game become a high scoring affair.
The Washington Capitals are a really good regular season team, but have had issues in the post season, which they hope to figure out later in the season.
In the first game they played the Ottawa Senators, and they had some really bad defense, but it didn’t matter because they had really good offense.
Led by Alex Ovechkin who put up three goals they ended up winning 5-4. In this game the defense needs to be better.
They are playing with fire if they keep trying to win games when they give up four games.
