Calgary Flames Vs. Washington Capitals Predictions
The best team in the Western Conference, the Calgary Flames are set for a thought visit when they take on the Stanley Cup champs, Washington Capitals, in full desperation mode on Friday Night. Repeating as champs is a task not many teams are up for, and the Capitals have found about it this season. They are nowhere near their best form, currently in the sixth place of the NHL standings. To make it worse for Washington is they enter this matchup with seven straight losses. This is by far the most challenging stretch of the season for them.
The last time Washington left the ice with a win was against the Bruins on January 10, nearly a month ago. They took Columbus and San Jose to overtime, but both times failed to deliver. The defensive assignments have been a mess for the Capitals in their last losing streak. The team is giving up an astonishing 5.1 goals per game during their seven-game skid. The challenge gets bigger on Friday night. Incoming is the best team in the Western Conference, the Flames, with three straight wins and eight victories in their last ten games. The Flames couldn’t care less if Washington is having a rough start of 2019, they will be looking to keep their momentum going.
Betting on the Capitals despite playing at home is hard. They are performing at a low level, especially on defense. The Flames have scored 190 goals this season, averaging 3.7 goals per game. Only Tampa Bay has a better offense than Calgary right now. It’s a dangerous combination for the Capitals. Their defense is lousy, and they are about to face a fast pace team which has no other way to win that by scoring in bunches. I would like to say Washington is about to snap out of this losing streak because at some point they will. It just won’t be against the Flames. What’s the play? Calgary.
