Hurricanes at Capitals 12/27/18 - NHL Picks & Predictions

The Hurricanes are a team that has been able to play well on the year at times, but in some of the games the Hurricanes have played in, especially in the recent games the Hurricanes have looked horrible. What else has not helped the Hurricanes is they have had to rely on Aho for most of the offensive production on the season and that has spelled disaster for the Hurricanes.

The Hurricanes on the year have been able to score at a clip of 2.54 goals a game off of 37.5 shots a game. Defensively the Hurricanes are giving up 2.89 goals a game on 27.9 shots a game. With the Capitals they are looking to do some major battle against the Hurricanes and start to showcase the stronger play they had to win the 2 games they had before the Christmas break. However, one thing the Capitals are going to need to do is start to look at the different ways they will be able to play a lot of the teams and have a good balance.

On the season the Capitals have been able to score 3.6 goals a game on 29.8 shots a game. The Capitals defense is giving up 2.91 goals a game, but have allowed 32 shots a game.

With the Capitals the team was dominating before the break and they should be able to continue to play at a very high level on the year, but definitely against the Hurricanes who have been playing horrible. Look for the Capitals to be able to shut down Aho, but also be able to control the Hurricanes defense in this game. Final Score Prediction, Washington Capitals win 4-2.
