The Minnesota Wild will travel to Washington to take on the Capitals in what should make an entertaining game.
Washington are coming off an overtime loss to the Tampa Bay Lighting, and will be livid at losing the last 2 to Tampa.
The Minnesota Wild have been playing with fire, after losing their last couple of games with a play off spot up for grabs.
Totals have gone 4-1 to the under for the Wild, while The Capitals have gone 4-1 to the OVER.
The capitals have been scoring a bunch of goals of late, and have also been giving up plenty . Scoring 19 and giving up 19.
Probable Goalies see Devin Dubnyk GAA 2.59 for the Wild and Braden Holtby GAA 2.95 for the Capitals.
Cutting to the chase, I think the Capitals come out here absolutely firing, very angry with themselves for losing those last couple to Tampa. Its not the greatest spot to be in for the Wild, and I believe they will have to cover up so to speak, as the Capitals let rip with a barrage of shots.
The last 5 head to heads see total trending 4-1 to the over, with the last 2 games both going 5-2 to the caps and the over.
I see this game going similarly to the last 2 games. The Capitals outscoring and winning by about a 3 goals margin.
