4-Unit Play. #013. Take Under in Calgary vs Washington (Friday, February 1 at 7:05 p.m.)
As per your selection on the under, we simply like to believe that the Washington Capitals are much better than their 7 game losing streak indicates. Look, I get it, teams go through slumps all the time, but when you give up 30 goals in their last 5 losses, that's a serious issue. However, the all-star break came at the right time and we believe that this team will come out focused and heavily committed to keeping the puck out of their own net. Not to mention, they will not have Alex Ovechkin in the lineup for this one as he sits out his one-game suspension for missing the All-Star game. That alone is worth at least one goal to the total. The Flames, on the other hand, is a better defensive team than they get credit for. While everyone talks about the offensive firepower, the flames are quietly fourth in shots on goal allowed and seventh in goals allowed at 2.8. After the lengthy all-star break, we've seen teams struggle to get going and we believe this will be the case here tonight. The Under has hit in 6 of the last 8 Capitals home games and is 19-5-5 in their last 29 home games vs a team with a winning road percentage of greater than .600.
