This is a 10* play on the Washington Capitals.
The defending Stanley Cup champs have now lost seven straight, but I don't believe there is any reason to panic. Take a close look at this losing streak and you will see that their backup goaltender started the majority of those losses, and they played some tough teams during that stretch (Toronto, Nashville, San Jose). Calgary is way out in front in the Pacific Division, and they come into the nation's capital as winners of eight of their last nine. They should face a stiff challenge here from a desperate Capitals team. This Washington team can turn things around quickly, as they did in last year's playoffs coming back from a 3-1 series deficit against Columbus. I'll take the Caps as a home dog.
