Kings vs Capitals: NHL Division Leaders Duel in The District

Kings vs Capitals: NHL Division Leaders Duel in The District

Washington looks to avoid two straight losses

Playing the fourth contest, during a string of matches versus Western Conference squads, Washington looks to rebound from a 4-3 loss to the Stars in Dallas on Saturday night. Following a scoreless first period, the flood gates opened as the Stars scored four goals in the second frame before the Capitals made the final count appear close with three goals in the third period. In the other two battles vs teams from the West, the Capitals recorded wins over Minnesota (4-3) and Nashville (5-3) during what was a three-game road trip. Basically the best at almost everything, Washington is back in the District and they have a 20-4-2 record at the Verizon Center this season. Alex Ovechkin & Crew are on 12-3-1 roll.

Los Angeles is set to play the fifth contest of a long seven-game road trip 

One has to wonder what they are doing for a puck fix in SoCal as the Kings and Anaheim Ducks have both been out of state for over a week now. During what will be a twelve-day journey, LA plays the fifth of a seven-game road trip tonight. The east coast adventure began with a 9-2 bashing of the Bruins and continued with a 5-2 loss against the Islanders, a 5-4 overtime win versus the Rangers and a 1-0 defeat to the Devils in the Kings last contest on Sunday. Los Angeles is 33-19-3 overall but their lead in the Pacific Division is shrinking as the Ducks have moved to within five points of the top perch.

Kings vs Capitals NHL Call: Jonathan Quick (28-14-2 GAA 2.23) battles Philipp Grubauer (5-4-1 GAA 2.24) in the goaltending duel tonight. Grubauer stopped all ten third period shots faced when he replaced Braden Holtby in Dallas but he was shaky during a 5-2 loss versus the Panthers in his last start on February 2. Quick, who is 14-4-1 with a 2.06 GAA during road contests this season, is back in net for the Kings after he missed the last three games with an undisclosed injury. These teams split their season series last year as the Kings won 3-1 at the Staples Center and Washington posted a 4-0 shutout at the Verizon Center in contests that were played in February. We’ll take the Capital gains by backing Washington with a five-unit wager on the money line price posted at the BetOnline sportsbook.
