The Washington Capitals will look to build on their 4-3 win over the Buffalo Sabres in their last matchup. Nicklas Backstrom leads the Capitals in scoring with 40 points with 13 goals and a team-high 27 assists while Alex Ovechkin has 36 points with a team-high 21 goals and 145 shots on goal this season. John Carlson, T.J. Oshie and Jakub Vrana each have double-digit goal and assist tallies as well this season. As a team, Washington is averaging 3.3 goals on 28 shots per game with a 24% success rate on the power play while allowing 3 goals on 29.4 shots against and an 83.1% success rate on the PK this season.
The Boston Bruins will look to rebound from a 3-2 loss to the Flyers last time out. Brad Marchand has a team-high 48 points with team-highs of 19 goals and 29 assists while Patrice Bergeron and David PAstrnak each have 16 goals with Bergeron logging 19 assists and a team-high1 28 shots on goal while Pastrnak has 125 shots on goal and 16 assists. David Krejci also has 21 assists while Charlie McAvoy has 18 helpers this season. As a team, Boston is averaging 2.8 goals on 32.1 shots per game with a 24.1% success rate on the power play while allowing 2.5 goals on2 7.7 shots with an 87.7% success rate on the PK this season.
Washington is 5-0 in their last 5 Sunday games and 11-4 in their last 15 road games while the over is 4-1-1 in their last 6 games as a road underdog. Boston is 2-6 in their last 8 games playing on no rest while the under is 8-1 in their last 9 Sunday games. The over is 3-1-1 in the last 5 meetings between these two teams.
I get the case that can be made for either side here, as this is probably the best game on the board. With that said, three of the five meetings have seen at least 6 goals this season, and with the offensive power on both sides, a 4-3 game wouldn’t surprise me in the least. I just think that this game at 5.5 is a steal, so give me the over here.
