There’s a solid matchup on Friday night from the American Airlines Center as the Dallas Stars host the Washington Capitals. Both teams have their eyes on the postseason in their respective conferences and have played well lately winning a combined 8 of 12. The Caps are playing in a back-to-back however.
Washington will be up against the wall on Friday after dropping a 2-5 contest in St. Louis on Thursday as -124 favorites. The loss was the second in a row for Washington who also fell 3-6 to Nashville on New Year’s Eve. The Caps had won four in a row prior while giving up just four total goals so they hope to get back on that track despite the back-to-back scheduling.
One thing last night’s loss did do to Washington is burn up their 1st string goaltender Braden Holtby. They now send Pheonix Copley out to mind the net hoping to continue his hot streak of six straight wins. Copley is especially familiar with starting on the road as 8 of his last 9 starts have come away.
The Stars are in a great spot to improve upon their 6th spot in the Western Conference playing a fatigued Washington team. Dallas has won three of their last four and not only has an extra day of rest over the Capitals – the Stars have played three straight on their own ice and have been at home for a week.
Ben Bishop will try to seal the deal for the Stars as he gets the start in net. Bishop is 4-1-1 his last six and has held three of those opponents to a goal or less.

Free Washington Capitals vs. Dallas Stars NHL Prediction:
If anything the line for Friday night’s game seems a bit low. Oddsmakers are calling the game essentially a toss up as both teams are listed at -110. It’s expected to be a tight defensive showing with two streaking goaltenders taking the net. Ultimately Dallas has the edge on SOG because of the B2B that Washington is in.
