Washington vs Calgary: Cruising Capitals Host Floundering Flames
Capitals vs Flames: Who has more gas on back-to-back nights?
Playing on back-to-back nights with travel, Calgary and Washington head into action tonight with a decidedly different mantra. The Capitals have been rock solid out of the starting gate, their 11-4-0 record is the fifth best mark in the NHL, and they pummeled the Flyers 5-2 in Philadelphia last night. Following their first playoff appearance in six years, Calgary has been a major disappointment as the Flames are flickering with a 5-11-1 record and their season may be over before the Christmas break. Calgary travels up the east coast after a 3-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday.
Alex Ovechkin takes another run at the Russian-born NHL goal scoring record
Currently tied with fellow countryman, for the most goals by a Russian-born player with 483, Alex Ovechkin takes his third crack at surpassing former Detroit Red Wing and Hall of Fame inductee Sergei Fedorov in this contest tonight. The Wings made sure it didn’t happen at the Joe Louis Arena as Detroit posted a 1-0 win over the Capitals on Tuesday. The Great Eight was denied again last night as he was held off the scoresheet during the Caps rout of the Flyers. Being as Calgary leads the NHL with 66 goals allowed, good for a shoddy 3.82 goals against per game average; we feel Friday the 13th will be a lucky night for the Capitals and Ovechkin on their home pond.
Flames vs Capitals NHL Call: Karri Ramo (3-6-0 GAA 3.54) makes his seventh consecutive start for Calgary tonight while Philipp Grubauer (2-0-0 GAA 2.43) gives Capitals starter Braden Holtby a night off and makes his third start of the season here. The Flames are a mess at this point as they have trouble scoring (2.41 GPG) and their aforementioned defense is atrocious. Give us the Capitals with an 800 unit wager on the William Hill money line and 200 unit wager that Ovechkin scores a goal during the Washington win.
