Among the many reasons why the Washington Capitals are battling the Boston Bruins for the best record in hockey are their stellar play on the road and their success against the Pacific Division.
It feels like just yesterday visiting teams feared the California trifecta. The Sharks, Kings, and Ducks were all perennial playoff teams. Visiting teams would be hoping to get 2 points out of the trip. Now, times are different.
The red-hot Capitals look to continue both trends and complete a perfect four-game road trip when they visit the Anaheim Ducks on Friday night.
While the Capitals are trying to match their season-high winning streak, Anaheim won for only the third time in 13 games with a 4-2 victory over Los Angeles on Monday night.
Washington’s offense this year has been led by someone other than Ovechkin. John Carlson etched his name among the all-time greats, collecting six points on the road trip to boost his season total to 42 — the second-highest number through 30 games by a defenseman
Alex Ovechkin is dangerous as always. Ovechkin scored in last month’s meeting and has 12 goals and 26 points in 19 games against Anaheim. Ovechkin has 20 goals on the season in just 30 games.
The potential starter for this game is Ilya Samsonov. His stats on the season are: 7-2-1 W-L | 2.42 GAA | 0.917 SV% | 0 SO
The Anaheim ducks must look at the offensive roster of the Capitals and wish they had some of their players. When your top point-getter has 21 points in 28 games (one more point than Ovechkin has goals!) things are going to be rough.
The Ducks have been average defensively, mostly thanks to the help of John Gibson, but they are totally outmatched in this one. It doesn’t help that they are coming in playing poorly (3-4-3 in their last 10)
Goaltender John Gibson missed Monday’s game while dealing with a virus but he was back at practice Thursday and could be in line to make the 250th start of his career. They will need a huge night from him if they want any chance in this one.

Free Washington Capitals vs. Anaheim Ducks NHL Prediction:
This one looks to be all Capitals, at least on paper. But that’s why the game is played on ice, not paper. I think the Caps win this one, but that’s a boring pick. I like the under in this one.
