It’s a showdown between the top two teams in the Metropolitan division on Sunday night.
The Washington Capitals continue on their five game road trip when they take on the Columbus Blue Jackets.
This is the fifth match up of the year between the two teams. Columbus won the first two match ups, and the Capitals have won the last two.
The Washington Capitals come into this game with 110 points, which is the most in the NHL.
The Capitals also seem to be getting hot at the right time. Before losing their last game against the Coyotes they had won six straight.
They play good hockey in both zones, but their best zone is the offensive zone. They have scored at least three goals in six of their last seven games.
To win this game they need to play well on the offensive end. Columbus has had problems scoring goals as of late, so the Capitals really need to attack in this game.
Columbus Blue Jackets
On the other end of this match up is the Columbus Blue Jackets, who haven’t been playing their best hockey as of late. They come into this game having lost two in a row and four of their last six.
Their problems as of late have come in the offensive zone. In their last four losses they have scored tow goals or under in each of the games.
To win this game it’s all going to come down to the offensive zone.
The Capitals can put up a ton of goals, so one or two goals isn’t going to get them a win in this one.
