The Bruins put their 16-5 record at TD Garden on the line when they host Washington on Thursday. The Capitals are one of the league’s best road teams over the past two years but are still listed as +125 underdogs. Boston has rattled off five wins in a row and just 2 points separate these teams in the East.
The Capitals have had some success over Boston lately including a 7-0 win in early October. Washington comes into Thursday’s game having won two in a row but they had dropped three prior. Two of those L’s came on the road although Washington is a very solid 13-6-2 going away this year.
Braden Holtby is back in net for Washington with a 3-2 record over his last five. Holty has been pretty solid over that span – in the wins. He has allowed 4 total goals in the 3 W’s but surrendered 11 in his two losses.
The Bruins can get to Holtby on Thursday. Boston’s offense has netted 19 goals across their five game win streak and overall has scored 3+ in 7 of 10. Boston pelts the goaltender, ranking 8th in SOG while also having a top tiered power play that is converting on 28.5% of their chances.
The job of limiting Washington’s offense falls on Jaroslav Halak. The Bruins backup is listed as the probable starter as Tuuka Raask is doubtful for rest. Boston had played their last three at home and Raask had started 2 games in 4 days but Halak still gets the nod. He’s gone 4-1 in his last 5 however.
