The Hurricanes are coming off a dominant 5-2 routing of Washington and will be vying to duplicate those results tonight. However, since Carolina will be playing on the road, things are looking rather bleak for them this Wednesday night. After all, they’re winless against Washington on the road in this series. On top of that, Carolina’s most recent road game resulted in a 6-0 blowout at the hands of Washington. Comparatively, their other two losses versus Washington were much tighter. Game 1 saw Carolina fall 4-2 to the Caps and Game 2 resulted in a 4-3 loss. If Carolina can stay competitive here, they should have a chance to get the road win. Notwithstanding that fact, tonight’s odds are still pegging Washington as a sizable favorite here.
Players to Watch: Dougie Hamilton (3 G, 3 A, 6 PTS.), Jaccob Slavin (0 G, 6 A, 6 PTS.), and Warren Foegele (4 G, 2 A, 6 PTS.).
The Caps are grateful to have the home court advantage here undoubtedly. However, it’s a bit surprising to see the top team out of the Metropolitan struggle to close out this series before Game 7 against a team that couldn’t even crack the top 3 of the division. Granted, it was an extremely tight divisional race in the end and Carolina was but 2-points away from usurping the 3rd seeded Pittsburgh Penguins. So does this mean that fans should bet against Washington tonight? All things considered, that would be less than ideal. All in all the money line is quite favorable for fans looking to side with Washington.
Players to Watch: Nicklas Backstrom (5 G, 3 A, 8 PTS.), Alex Ovechkin (4 G, 4 A, 8 PTS.), and John Carlson (0 G, 5 A, 5 PTS.).
