Stream: Watch ESPN, NHL TV
Online NHL Betting Odds:
The Caps enter this evening’s contest sporting a 15-8-3 record that nets them 33 points on the season. That 33 point tally just happens to rank Washington as the best team in the Metropolitan Division. However, the Columbus Blue Jackets are hot on Washington’s tail with 32 points on the year. With that in mind, it’s clear that Washington cannot afford any slipups in the coming weeks. Unfortunately for the Caps, tonight’s online NHL betting odds are pegging them as an underdog against Vegas on the road. This is a bit surprising given that Washington is 5-3 in their last 8 against the Knights. On top of that, the Caps are coming off a tough 6-5 road loss to Anaheim and will be vying for blood.
Players to Watch: Nicklas Backstrom (10 G, 23 A, 33 PTS.), Alex Ovechkin (19 G, 13 A, 32 PTS.), and John Carlson (5 G, 24 A, 29 PTS.).
Vegas Golden Knights
The Knights enter this evening’s contest with a 14-13-1 record that ranks them 4th overall in the Pacific Division. Although they had a tough start to the season, Vegas has bounced back and is steadily climbing the divisional ladder. Recently they had a 5-game winning streak snapped by the Oilers but Vegas will be looking to get back on the horse this evening. Looking over the numbers, it’s clear that Vegas could give Washington a run for their money. This is because the Caps rank 21st in the league in goals allowed while Vegas ranks 8th.
Players to Watch: William Karlsson (9 G, 12 A, 21 PTS.), Jonathan Marchessault (10 G, 11 A, 21 PTS.), and Alex Tuch (8 G, 12 A, 20 PTS.).
