Bet Tonight's Hurricanes vs. Capitals Game

The Capitals are in a bit of scoring rut, scoring just two goals in four of their last five games. But they've also allowed nine total goals in their past two games as they've struggled in the first period. The team has been outscored 6-0 in the opening 20 minutes of its recent road trip, and have been outscored 8-0 in the first period of its last five games.

The over is 12-4-1 in the Capitals' last 17 home games following a road trip of seven or more days, so home cooking could be what the doctor ordered for Washington to break out offensively. The over is also 2-0-2 in the Hurricanes' last four games overall and 6-1-4 in their last 11 contests versus a team with a winning record.
