Capitals win sixth straight

Washington kept rolling Saturday night with a 5-2 home victory over Las Vegas to improve to 13-2-3 on the season. Evgeny Kuznetsov put the Capitals on the board 58 seconds in on assists by Dmitry Orlov and Jakub Vrana. Tom Wilson made it 2-0 five minutes later off an assist by Vrana. The Golden Knights cut it to 2-1 later in the first, but Jonas Siegenthaler made it a two-goal lead at the 4:28 mark of the second period off an assist from Travis Boyd. Las Vegas cut it back to 3-2 two minutes later. In the third period, Nicklas Backstrom extended the lead to two again with 8:30 to go as his power play goal was assisted by John Carlson and Kuznetsov.

NHL Betting Trends

Arizona

The Coyotes are 4-0 in their last four Monday games. Arizona is 5-2 in its last seven road games.

Washington

The Capitals are 10-1 in their last 11 games overall. Washington is 5-1 in its last six games versus the Pacific Division.

Prediction:

The Capitals offense is basically on cruise control right now and while Arizona has been pretty good defensively this season, it has struggled a bit lately and this is not the matchup you want to turn it around with. The scary part is that star Alex Ovechkin was not even on the scoresheet in 21:21 of ice time two nights ago, so he might be due for a big night tonight. Go with the hosts.
