Form and class distinction prevails
Washington has gained momentum lately – 4-1 win against San Jose Sharks last and a total of five wins on the last six games. In terms of play, it’s starting to look really good for Caps, which still shows a smoking hotline. Ovechkin continues to show off in the offensive with six goals in the last five games, Russia has scored in five of the last six games. Must also highlight Kuznetsov, which has convinced much lately. On the whole, Caps feel very stable, the morale of the troupe is high while confidence is at the top. Home at the Capital One Arena is ruggedly strong – 10 wins of 15 possible at homemais this season, as well as nine wins at the 11 most recent home matches. I see the home team with great victory chances when a magnificent Chicago is coming to visit.
Blackhawks completely under the ice
Chicago Blackhawks started the season in a brilliant manner, not least, made the process short with the ruling champions Pittsburgh after a brutal 10-1 overrun. As the season has grown older, it has seen everything worse for Blackhawks. The lack of continuity is probably the problem of the team at the moment, but at the same time it is easy to understand when talking about a team filled with young rookies. We find Hawks in a ninth place in the Western Conference table, with 12 wins and 15 losses on 25 played matches. Filip Forsberg is expected to watch the cage in the first place, when the Former Guardian Crawford is on the injury list. Obviously a break of the heavier caliber. At the same time as the defensive underperforms, the offensive is difficult to come up with by default. The 3-1 loss against Los Angeles Kings last was the fourth straight loss of the team – a new tough challenge is taking place when you visit a magnificent Washington Capitals.
Our Prediction: Washington Capitals win @ 1.72
