A six-game homestand is rounding off for the Washington Capitals (2nd in Metropolitan Division), who will try to extend their point streak to four contests when hosting the Los Angeles Kings (7th in Pacific).

Kings Drop OT In Boston

A three-game winning run ended for the Los Angeles Kings (23-27-5), who still extended their point streak to four outings (3-0-1) after dropping a 5-4 overtime decision against the Boston Bruins at TD Garden on Saturday. Alex Iaffalo (11 goals, 24 points this year), Anze Kopitar (17 goals, 41 points), Nate Thompson (4 goals, 6 points) and Oscar Fantenberg (1 goal, 2 points) all scored, as the Kings squandered a 2-1 lead to trail 4-2, only to rally with two third-period goals to force overtime before the Bruins grabbed the win with a power-play goal at 2:34 of the extra session.

Goalie Jonathan Quick made 28 saves in Boston, taking his current performance status to 11-13-4 for the current season with a 2.99 GAA and a .902 save percentage. He is 9-2-0 against the Washington Capitals in previous encounters with a 2.23 GAA and a .920 save percentage. The Kings, meanwhile, are scoring the 2nd lowest quantity of goals per game so far this season (2.36), while allowing the 15th lowest amount on the defensive end (2.98). They are 4th from the bottom in power play (15.3%) and 3rd worst in penalty kill (75.9%).

Caps Get Edged By Florida

The Washington Capitals (30-18-7) snapped a two-game winning stretch with a 5-4 overtime loss to the Florida Panthers at Capital One Arena on Saturday. Brett Connolly (12 goals, 29 points this year) buried a double, with Lars Eller (7 goals, 24 points) and Evgeny Kuznetsov (13 goals, 49 points) also on the scoreboard, as the Caps were faced with 2-0, 3-1 and 4-2 deficits before forcing overtime with two strikes in the third period ahead of Florida’s power-play winner 1:31 into the extra session. Washington is 3-1-1 in its last five fixtures after going 0-5-2 prior.

Goalie Braden Holtby stopped 26 shots versus Cats and has now gone 19-13-4 for the season with a 3.07 GAA and a .906 save percentage. He has recorded a 1-2-1 career total against the Los Angeles Kings with a 2.51 GAA and a .911 save percentage. The Capitals, meanwhile, are netting the 7th highest number of goals per game so far this year (3.33), while conceding the 11th highest quantity on the defensive end (3.18). They are 12th in power play with a 21.0% conversion rate and 23rd in penalty kill with 78.3% efficiency.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Both teams lost 5-4 overtimes in their previous game, extended their point streaks and will definitely be keen to return to winning ways, as the Kings are looking to wrap up their fourth consecutive victory against Washington, which, on the other hand, will try to snatch its fourth home win on the last five tries versus Los Angeles. The Caps have done extremely well against the Pacific Division lately, banking 11 victories in their last 16 meetings, while the Kings have struggled versus sides with a winning record (2-6) and have managed to pick up just five triumphs on their last 17 travels to see off opponents with an excellent domestic form. Yes, back Washington to bag this one!

Prediction: Washington Capitals

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Three of the very last five meetings between Washington and Los Angeles have finished above the five-goal mark, averaging 6.7 snipes per contest. So, don’t be surprised to see another high-scoring matchup this time around as well. Five of the last six road contests of the Kings have already gone past the five-snipe barrier, with an average of 7.2 markers being buried, while the Capitals have gone over the total in five of their previous six encounters with the Pacific Division.

Prediction: Over 5.5
