The Bruins have ended up playing some great games on the season and what could be a problem for the Bruins is the fact they are right at the five hundred mark on the road this year. What else will hurt the Bruins is the fact they are 1-4 in the last 5 games and have not really been competitive in those games.
The Bruins on the season have been able to score 2.88 goals a game, but have given up 2.63 goals a game. The Bruins have ended up converting on the power play at 27.8%, but have killed off 78.2%.
The Capitals finally snapped their massive losing skid they had been on for several weeks going back to before the All-Star break. However, the Capitals are also starting to look like a team that is going to have some problems creeping up again as the Capitals have not really had to play three straight games on the year against some of the stronger teams in the league, but the Capitals do have the confidence in this game after recently beating the Flames.
On the season the Capitals have been able to score 3.37 goals a game, but have given up 3.22 goals a game. The Capitals on the power play have converted on the power play at 21.9%, but have killed off 77.5%.
