Two teams who have gotten out of the gate fast meet on Wednesday as the Washington Capitals and Edmonton Oilers meet up in Canada.
Washington enters play with a 3-1-1 record, while the Oilers may be the hottest team right now at 5-1.
The Capitals saw their 3 game winning streak come to a halt as they couldn’t solve the Rangers in a rare 4-2 home loss.
Washington failed to earn a point for the first time this season and will now embark on a 4 game Canada swing here, which could prove to be much tougher than usual.
We may see a new look here from the Capitals too, as there was some line shifting done in practice this week. TJ Oshie was dropped to the 2nd line, while Andre Burakovsky was promoted to the line along side Evgeny Kuznetsov and Alexander Ovechkin.
Keep an eye on the first line here as all three now have the potential to shoot from the blue line, something Oshie rarely did.
Alexander Ovechkin has 16 points in his career against Edmonton.
The Oilers have matched their best start since 1985-1986 and will look to continue their hot stretch here on Wednesday.
Edmonton has opened play with a 5-1 start as they took down the Winnipeg Jets 3-0 on Sunday in the Heritage Classic. The Oilers continue to find success with their goal scoring.
They lead the league in goals per game, as they sit just under 4 at 3.80.
Another big piece to the success of the Oilers has been goalie Cam Talbot. During the 3 game winning streak for the Oilers, Talbot has allowed just 3 goals.
Look for Captain Connor McDavid to continue his dominance here as well. McDavid has a team high 9 points of the Oilers this season.
