It’s an Eastern conference showdown on Friday night at the Little Caesars Arena. The Washington Capitals make the trip to Detroit Red Wings.
The Capitals have won four of the last five games played between the two teams.
The Washington Capitals got off to a nice start this year, but now come into this game really struggling. They come into this game having lost four of the last five games with the only win being a 5-2 victory over the New Jersey Devils.
For a team that has always been known for goal scoring, they have struggled the last couple games putting the puck in the back of the net.
They were shutout in the last game, and two games ago they could only put up two goals.
Detroit Red Wings
On the other side of this match up is the Detroit Red Wings who also got off to a fast start, but come into this game struggling a bit.
Over their last two games they have given up nine goals total, and that has led to two straight losses.
They are facing a Capitals team that usually can put up a lot of goals, so if the Red Wings don’t sure that up it could be a lot of goals scored for the Capitals.

Free Washington Capitals vs. Detroit Red Wings NHL Prediction:
With two teams that are struggling I would expect both teams to come out and really try to get that early goal. I think that early goal will go to the Red Wings, and that will be the difference.
