Preview

The Washington Capitals travel to Vancouver to take on the Canucks on Friday night. These teams have met once so far this season and the Canucks got the win on the road 4-2.

WASHINGTON CAPITALS

The Capitals have won 3 of their last 4 games and are 17-12 on the road with a 31-18-10 record overall ranking 4th in the Metropolitan division. 

Ovechkin leads the Capitals with 36 goals and has 70 points. Conor Sheary has four goals over the last 10 games for Washington.

In their last 10 games the Capitals are 5-5, averaging 3.2 goals, 5.2 assists, 3.8 penalties and 9.3 penalty minutes while giving up 2.8 goals per game with a .908 save percentage.

VANCOUVER CANUCKS

The Canucks have won their last 3 games and are 13-13 at home this season. With a 29-23-6 record overall they rank 5th in the Pacific. Vancouver averages 8.4 penalty minutes per game, the 10th-most in the Western Conference. Tyler Myers leads the team serving 48 total minutes.

J.T. Miller leads the Canucks with 22 goals and has 63 points. Pettersson has five goals and eight assists over the last 10 games for Vancouver.

In their last 10 games the Canucks are  8-2, averaging 4.4 goals, 6.8 assists, 2.9 penalties and 6.1 penalty minutes while giving up 3.8 goals per game with an .882 save percentage.

BETTING TRENDS

Washington are 8-3 SU in their last 11 games against Vancouver.

The total has gone OVER in 4 of Washington's last 5 games.

Vancouver are 6-1 SU in their last 7 games.

The total has gone OVER in 6 of Vancouver's last 7 games at home.

Prediction

The Canucks are riding some momentum, they have won 8 of their last 8 games and 4 of their last 5 at home but they're allowing a lot of goals as they're allowing 3.8 gpg in their last 10 games. With the Capitals scoring 3.2 and the Canucks 4.4 lately, I think the total will go over 6 goals.

PICK: Over 6 (-110)
