Minnesota Wild vs Washington Capitals, February 26th 2016
Provided by Pucking Hockey Handicapping Service
The Capitals slid past the Wild back on Feb. 11th, thanks to Ovechkin’s 14th NHL hat trick. However, the Capitals are trying to regain momentum after losing to Montreal on Tuesday, ending a four game winning streak for the team. Against a Wild team who’s lost nine consecutive conference games since January, it’ll be the Capitals’ game to lose on Friday.
The Wild (27-24-10) are traveling on this two-game road trip without two of their forwards, Praise and Zucker, which likely won’t be much help for an already-struggling team. They’re currently on a two-game losing streak, with a 3-2 loss against the Flyers on Wednesday. They’ve got back to back games on this trip, starting against a team with an impressive record, despite their loss earlier in the week. Starting the first period with a lot of energy and momentum will be the best bet for the Wild to really unleash and take charge.
The Capitals (44-11-4) are trying to get back to their winning ways after a loss to the Canadiens earlier this week. “We were not securing the puck, we were not making good decisions, and therefore we paid a price” said coach Trotz. Hopefully that puck will be under lock and key tonight for Washington, so a back-to-back loss doesn’t shoot down the confidence of an otherwise winning team.
Confidence needs to be on the side of the Capitals, but not enough to where they play lazy and make more decisions. ‘Capitalizing’ on the injuries and record of the Wild is likely the team’s best bet tonight to secure a win at home and get back on track.
