10* Washington (8:05 ET): The Capitals have gotten a huge break w/ their chief rival (Pittsburgh) losing six in a row. Their next closest competition is now actually the Flyers, who are three points behind. That’s obviously still a really tight margin and Thursday’s 3-0 loss in Winnipeg did the Caps no favors. But in the previous two games, they scored a total of nine goals. While those were both at home, there’s actually zero dropoff in terms of goals scored at home vs. on the road for this club.
Minnesota is also off a shutout in its last game, though theirs was a dominant 5-0 win over Columbus. It was the Wild’s third straight victory as they are trying just to get into the playoffs over in the Western Conference. The way things stand now, they are one point back of a three-way tie for the final Wild Card. The current stretch is among the very best we’ve seen all season from them, but I’m not convinced it can be sustained. They’ve recently beaten a Columbus team that is really struggling - twice - and Detroit who is the worst team in the league. 10* Washington
