The Washington Capitals come into this game with a recent loss on their hands. It was a close but tough 6-3 loss against the Nashville Predators as they allowed the Predators to score on their early mistakes. However the Capitals will still be in good spirits here as they have won four of the past five games.
Coming into this game, the Capitals are excelling on the front lines as they might be turning the corner with their success in the past week. The Capitals are scoring 3.55 goals per game with scoring on 23.3 % of their power play goals which is only ranked 9th in the league.
St. Louis Blues
As for the St. Louis Blues, they had one of the worst starts in franchise history, and are not starting off the New Year with a bang. They enter this game with losing the past two straight games as this homestand has been nothing but a failure. Now they take on a Capitals team that has owned them in recent games.
Unlike the Washington Capitals, the St. Louis Blues have been struggling scoring in games as they are scoring 2.76 goals per game which is 25th best in the league. It only gets worse for the Blues as they are allowing 3.30 goals per game.
