It’s a huge Eastern Conference showdown on Tuesday night at Capital One Arena. The Toronto Maple Leafs come to town to take on the Washington Capitals.
The Capitals have won the last three games played between the two teams, but two of those games went to overtime.
Toronto Maple Leafs
The Toronto Maple Leafs were looking to build off a nice season last year, and at the beginning of this season they have been playing some really good hockey.
They come into this game having only lost one game, and that was against the Devils.
For the Maple Leafs it’s all about the goal scoring. They come into this game averaging 5.2 goals per game, which is a number unheard of even for early in the season.
On the other side of this match up is the Washington Capitals who got off to a fast start this season, but are struggling a bit coming into this game.
They have lost two of their last three games, and in the last one it was really ugly.
The defense was terrible all night and that led to an 8-2 defeat at the hands of the Philadelphia Flyers. To win this game the defense is going to need to be better against a team that has done a really good job of scoring goals.
