Latest Odds: WAS -132 O/U 6.5

Avalanche fans can rejoice as the team has shown that they are able to win some of the games they have played on the year. However, what else the Avalanche have going for them is the way the team has managed to play offensively and that is what has really helped the Avs get into the shape they are in and at home the Avalanche have been very difficult to beat, but on the road it could be a completely different story.

Scoring for the Avalanche has been done at just over the 4 goals a game average. The defense for the Avalanche is giving up only a little bit over 2 goals a game. When it comes to the power play the team has converted at over 28% of the power plays, but the penalty kill is sitting at just under 70% on the year.

With the Capitals the team has bounced all over the ice this year. The team would come into some of the games and win in a blowout, but then the next game they would look like they never saw the rink before. However, the last game for the Capitals was a win over the Dallas Stars who beat them only a couple of games before in Washington.

It has been an odd year for the Capitals. The team that has been great defensively has allowed 3.20 goals a game this year. The offense for the Capitals has managed to get only 3 goals a game. The Capitals have converted on the power play at 20% this season, but the team has killed off 80% of the opponents plays on the year.
