Prediction

The Capitals have been up and down lately as they're 5-5 in the last 10 games and most of their games have been decided by 1 goal. The Hurricanes were on a hot streak before losing their last game against the Rangers but they have been pretty good on the road winning 8 of the last 10 away from home. In the last 10 head to head games the average score is 3-3 so we can expect another close game but I gotta go with the better team. Give me the Hurricanes.
