The Washington Capitals clearly aren’t the phenomenal team that they were several years ago when they won the Stanley Cup back in 2018, but still have a chance to make the playoff push this season. The Capitals aren’t in a playoff spot right now but they currently sit five points out of the final wildcard spot in the Eastern Conference. The Capitals currently hold an overall record of 33-30-7 for 73 points in 70 games played.

The Minnesota Wild will enter this game against the Washington Capitals following a heartbreaking loss against the Boston Bruins yesterday afternoon which resulted in a final score of 5-2. Despite the loss against the Bruins, the Minnesota Wild has been one of the NHL’s best lately which is the reason why they have climbed their way out of a wildcard spot to the 2nd spot in the Central Division.

The Minnesota Wild have been spotty all season long as the could win three games in a row and go on to lose three in a row, but they’ve found some consistency at the perfect time as the playoffs are right around the corner. The Wild’s best player this season is without a doubt Kirill Kaprizov, but they will be without him in the game against the Capitals as he is recovering from a lower-body injury. Kaprizov currently has 39 goals, 35 assists, and 74 points this season.
