Pittsburgh is 5-16 in their last 21 road games and 0-7 in their last 7 games. The over is 5-0 in Pittsburgh’s last 5 Wednesday games. Washington is 1-4 in their last 5 games and 1-6 in their last 7 Wednesday games. The under is 6-1 in Washington’s last 7 games. The over is 13-3 in these two team's last 16 head-to-head meetings.
Pittsburgh limps into this game on a seven game losing streak, while Washington was able to defeat the Oilers in their last game to snap their losing streak. Both of these teams have had struggles over the last couple of weeks, and Pittsburgh has had a really hard time keeping the puck out of their net. While Washington has had a slow start on offense, their defense is only allowing 2.93 goals per game. I like the Capitals at home here.
