INJURY TO WATCH
Toronto star center Auston Matthews is out until mid-March with a shoulder injury. Washington does not have anyone on its injury report.
The Maple Leafs have lost two in a row and don't have the same swagger as when Matthews was healthy. Washington has been up and down lately as it is only 4-6 in its last 10 games, but many of the losses have come on the road and the Capitals have won two in a row at home. Washington is 22-9-2-0 at home this season, while Toronto is 17-12-3-2 on the road. The Capitals are also 7-3 in the last 10 head-to-head meetings, while the over-under has gone 5-5. I say take Alexander Ovechkin and the hosts tonight as the line is plenty small enough to stomach for a team as skilled as Washington.
