The Washington Capitals and Philadelphia Flyers meet Sunday in NHL action at the Wells Fargo Center.
The Washington Capitals look for a win after winning five of their last seven games. The Washington Capitals are averaging 3.2 goals per game and are scoring on 26.7 percent of their power play opportunities. Nicklas Backstrom leads Washington with 10 goals, John Carlson has 14 assists and Alex Ovechkin has 76 shots on goal. Defensively, the Washington Capitals are allowing 3.2 goals per game and are killing 81.1 percent of their opponents power plays. Ilya Samsonov has given up 10 goals on 81 shots faced and Vitek Vanecek has allowed 52 goals on 554 shots.
The Philadelphia Flyers look for a win after splitting their last 12 games. The Philadelphia Flyers are averaging 3.4 goals per game and are scoring on 18.6 percent of their power play opportunities. James van Riemsdyk leads Philadelphia with 10 goals, Claude Giroux has 14 assists and Kevin Hayes has 59 shots on goal. Defensively, the Philadelphia Flyers are allowing three goals per game and are killing 73.5 percent of their opponents power plays. Carter Hart has allowed 20 goals on 192 shots faced and Brian Elliott has allowed 21 goals on 258 shots.
The Capitals are 4-1 in their last 5 road games and 4-1 in their last 5 overall. The Flyers are 29-13 in their last 42 home games and 4-1 in their last 5 overall. The under is 3-1-1 in Capitals last 5 road games. The over is 3-1-1 in Flyers last 5 Sunday games. The Capitals are 0-5 in the last 5 meetings. The favorite is 19-7 in the last 26 meetings.
The Washington Capitals are worth a look with the plus money with the way they're playing, but the Flyers are a team I've backed a ton dating back to last season and there's no reason to fade them at home. The Flyers already beat the Capitals this season in a game where they lit them up for seven goals, and they've won each of the last five meetings against the Caps overall. I'll back the Flyers and the cheap price here.
