Washington Capitals Preview
The Washington Capitals are currently sitting 2nd in the league among scoring at 3.1 goals per game. If that wasn’t impressive enough the Capitals also rank 2nd in the league on power play conversions at 25.2% AND it gets even better for this well rounded Washington team. At the the defensive end of the ice they are 1st in goals allowed, 2.1 goals per game, as well as 5th in the penalty killing department 84.5%
Buffalo Sabres Preview
Despite potting 3 goals in their last outing against Tuukka Rask this Buffalo team is a horrific offensive team this year as they come in ranked 25th in scoring. Putting up just 2.4 goals per game. However they are quite impressive in the power play department ranking 9th with a 20.4% conversion rate. On defense they are not terrible ranking in the middle of the pact at 15th in goals allowed at 2.5 goals per game and 23rd in the penalty killing department 78.2%
Starting Goalies Tonight
- Washington Capitals – Braden Holtby
Braden Holtby kicked aside 29 shots in the Capitals’ 3-1 win against the Canadiens on Saturday night. The only blemish against Holtby came early in the second period. Other than that, just as he’s been all year, Holtby has been tough to beat. After giving up three goals in two games in a row, Holtby rebounded nicely in this one. His 22 wins lead the NHL, plus his 1.92 GAA and .932 SV% are still impressive, still does not reflect his recent play as of late.
- Buffalo Sabres – Linus Ullmark
