Washington Capitals Preview
Barry Trotz made one of the best decisions of his NHL career, taking over the Washington Capitals. This Washington team are rolling and rolling and rolling. However, when teams destroy in the regular season, they tend to fall apart in the playoffs. Remember, the playoffs are a new season.
When I first saw Braden Holtby take over the net in Washington, my wife as my witness, I said he’s going to be a top 5 goaltender, leading the Capitals throughout his career. Braden Holtby, is 20-5 on the year with a 1.92 goals against average. There’s no other goalie in the same universe as him currently.
The defense is not the only unit that has Washington atop the Eastern Conference as their offense ranks 3rd in scoring, 3.0 goals per game. Second in power play conversions (25%).
The stats don’t lie as this is one of the most completed team(s) in the NHL.
The Hurricanes beat the Penguins last time out, who loses to the Penguins anymore? Let’s chalk that win up to an early Christmas gift. What made that victory much sweeter, ex Penguin Jordan Staal scored. I love when that happens, it was his 7th goal of the season.
Cam Ward, one of my favorite goaltenders is 6-6 with a 2.49 goals against average at home, while vs the Caps he’s 16-18 with a 2.64 goals against average in his career.
Carolina ranks 24th in scoring, 2.4 goals per game, 15th in power play conversions 18.3%, while on defense they are 25th in goals allowed 3.0 goals allowed per game. In the penalty killing department Carolina ranks 17th.
Washington Capitals – Braden Holtby
Carolina Hurricanes – Cam Ward
