Oshie helped pace the offense with two goals and an assist in the loss. John Carlson contributed a goal and an assist. Alex Ovechkin, Jakub Vrana, and Brooks Orpik all had one goal apiece.

NHL Betting Trends

Las Vegas

The Golden Knights are 0-5 in their last five games versus the Metropolitan Division. Las Vegas is 0-6 in its last six games versus the Eastern Conference.

Washington

The over is 4-0 in the last four Capitals games. Washington is 4-0 in its last four games versus the Pacific Division.

Prediction:

While the Golden Knights have a number of talented young players, no one can expect a repeat season after their historic expansion campaign. Washington is at home, very rested and seems to have Las Vegas' number after last year's impressive showing in the Stanley Cup Finals. Go with the favored hosts here.
