New Jersey Devils
The Devils ride into tonight’s matchup sporting a 25-33-9 record that nets them a total of 59 points on the season. Seeing as how that 59 point tally ranks New Jersey dead last in the Metropolitan, it’s safe to say they’re not having the season they were hoping for. Moreover, it’s also safe to assume that they’re in for a lopsided beating this evening. After all, New Jersey hasn’t won a game in their last 4. Additionally, they’ve struggled against Washington lately seeing as how they’re 3-7 versus the Caps in their last 10. As if that wasn’t enough, tonight’s numbers also paint a lousy picture for New Jersey. At the present time the Devils rank 22nd in scoring and 26th in defense. Comparatively the Capitals rank 6th in scoring and 20th in defense.
Players to Watch: Kyle Palmieri (26 G, 22 A, 48 PTS.), Nico Hischier (17 G, 27 A, 44 PTS.), and Travis Zajac (15 G, 23 A, 38 PTS.).
The Caps slide into tonight’s contest sporting a 39-21-7 record that grants them a total of 85 points on the season. Currently that 85 point tally ties them with the New York Islanders for the lead in the Metropolitan. With that in mind, it’s clear that Washington cannot afford a loss this evening. Luckily for them they haven’t lost a game in quite some time now, especially against New Jersey. To this end, bettors should fully expect Washington to come out on top here. After all, they’re the better team and will be playing on home ice here.
Players to Watch: Alex Ovechkin (46 G, 31 A, 77 PTS.), Nicklas Backstrom (16 G, 47 A, 63 PTS.), and Evgeny Kuznetsov (17 G, 42 A, 59 PTS.).
