New Jersey Devils DFS Spin

Mackenzie Blackwood allowed four goals in Thursday’s 4-3 loss to the Washington Capitals. Blackwood’s stats will suffer after a tough night for the youngster, however he is not fully to blame for the loss despite only making 18 saves. Every goal was a high quality chance due to poor defensive coverage, however the Devils needed an extra save from Blackwood and he could not give it to them. The loss snaps a personal three-game win streak for the 24-year-old. Blackwood owns an 8-9-1 record with a 2.98 goals-against average and .904 save percentage.

Washington Capitals DFS Spin

Vitek Vanecek made 21 saves in Thursday’s 4-3 win over the New Jersey Devils. While Vanecek picked up the win, he certainly did not make things easy on his teammates as he allowed some questionable goals. Just 1:23 into the game, he made an egregious blunder with the puck and Nick Merkley took advantage to give the Devils an early lead. Vanecek was also beat by a sharp-angle shot from Miles Wood in the second period. Thankfully the Capitals’ explosive offense was there to bail him out. The rookie goaltender owns a 14-5-3 record with a 2.67 goals-against average and .910 save percentage.

Devils vs. Capitals NHL Prediction

The over is a perfect 4-0 in the last four meetings between these two teams in Washington and has cashed in four of the last five meetings overall. The over is also 4-1 in the Devils’ last five games as a road dog and is 4-1 in their last five road games, while the over is also 40-18 in the Capitals’ last 58 home games.

NHL PREDICTION: DEVILS/CAPITALS OVER 6.5
