The Capitals have made a quiet run to the top of the East Division standings.
The Capitals have won games both at home and on the road, posting a 13-5-2 home record this year and a 13-6-2 road record. Plus, Washington is an impressive 16-3 as a favorite this season.
Behind goal scorers Alex Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom and T.J. Oshie, the Capitals have one of the most explosive offensive attacks in the NHL. They rank fourth in goals per game this season with 138.
Interesting, however, is that the Capitals haven’t been scoring on the power play. They rank just 26th in power play opportunities this season, scoring primarily on 5v5 opportunities.
Boston is pretty firmly locked in the fourth and final playoff spot in the East right now. However, a few more wins would be welcomed by the Bruins rabid fanbase.
The Bruins are 6-2-2 in their last 10 and have won three of their last five. However, dropping a tough game to the Flyers yesterday is not ideal.
The polar opposite of the Capitals, the Bruins are a staunch defensive team. They allow the sixth-fewest goals per game in the NHL, and therefore are only 14-22-1 to the Over this season.
Free Washington Capitals vs. Boston Bruins NHL Prediction:
This is a very tough game to cap.
A fast-paced offensive team is running into a slow-paced defensive team, and the two have split the season series so far this year, with Boston winning three and Washington winning two.
Both have also won three of their last five games.
In a complete pick’em of a game, I’m going to take the healthier team. The Bruins are still banged up, with injuries to Charlie McAvoy, Brandon Carlo and Tuuka Rask.
I think Washington evens up the season series in this game.
