Two of the league’s best teams meet up in Washington on Sunday as the Capitals and Ducks finish off their regular season schedule.
The Anaheim Ducks have really turned things around since their very ugly start to the year and have gone from one of the league’s biggest underachievers to a Western Conference powerhouse and are playoff bound once again. The Ducks are a legitimate contender to win the Stanley Cup as they have a very deep roster and a goaltender who has been very strong all season long and will likely face off against the inconsistent San Jose Sharks in the first round which would be favourable for them and would cut down on their travel at least for the first round. Anaheim is coming off a win against the Colorado Avalanche in Denver last night and will look to improve their road record to 21-15-5 while the Capitals have been the class of the league for most of the season and their domination of the St. Louis Blues on the road yesterday is a clear sign that they aren’t messing around.
The Washington Capitals finish off a magical regular season at home tonight after trouncing the Blues yesterday and if they get a win in this one they will finish the year with a very impressive 122 points. The Caps are loaded across the board and can beat you a number of different ways as they have a ton of offensive firepower, a great back end, and a record setting goaltender who is a shoe in to win the Vezina Trophy. Washington is 29-7-4 at home this season and should be confident heading into this one against a Ducks side that is travelling from Colorado to DC overnight and by the time the puck drops the Ducks could very well be locked into the two seed in the Pacific division. Take the Caps here.
