Detroit Red Wings DFS Spin

Alex Nedeljkovic stopped 32-of-35 shots in Sunday's 6-3 win over the Chicago Blackhawks. Nedeljkovic allowed goals in each period of Sunday's contest, with Tyler Johnson, Dominik Kubalik and Henrik Borgstrom nicking him for scores in respective order. The performance -- fine, if unspectacular -- was aided greatly by a Red Wings offense which was destroying Marc-Andre Fleury (six goals allowed) in the opposite crease. It has been a rollercoaster ride for Nedeljkovic through four appearances this season. In that small space he has already turned in one game with seven goals allowed (against the Lightning to open the season) and two games with two or fewer goals allowed. A showdown with the Capitals shows next on Detroit's schedule.

Washington Capitals DFS Spin

Ilya Samsonov allowed five goals on 37 shots during Monday's 7-5 win over the Ottawa Senators. It's not every day that you give up five goals and come away with a win, but the Caps netminder found a way. He wasn't particularly great on Monday, but he did come up with some key saves when the game was close. The 24-year-old has given up nine goals in three games this season. He'll go into his next appearance with a 2-0-1 record, a 3.32 goals-against-average and a .885 save percentage.

Red Wings vs. Capitals Betting Prediction

The over is 11-4-1 in the last 16 meetings between these two teams in Washington, is 4-0 in the Red Wings’ last four games as a road underdog and is 4-0 in their last four road games overall. On the other side, the over is 18-7-2 in the Capitals’ last seven games versus Eastern Conference foes, is 18-7-2 in their last 27 games playing on one day of rest and is 20-8-1 in their last 29 games versus Atlantic opponents.
