Stephen Nover's Totals Crusher - 39-20-2 NHL Run
Calgary vs. Washington,
02/01/2019 19:00 EDT,
Score: 3 - 4
Total: -125/+6 Over
The combination of circumstances, Over the total trends and sub-par goaltending put me on the Over here.
The Flames last played on Jan. 22. Their defense is going to be rusty, but their wings will have a lot of energy. Calgary comes out of All-Star break having gone Over in seven of its last eight games. The Capitals are in a similar spot having last played on Jan. 23. The Over is 15-5-1 the past 21 times the Capitals have played following three or more day's of rest. Washington is 8-2-1 to the Over the past 11 times going against Western Conference opponents.
Mike Smith has been confirmed as the Flames' goalie for this game. Smith is inferior to David Rittich in my view. Capitals goalie Branden Holtby is not enjoying one of his better seasons so far.
