Washington Capitals vs Boston Bruins: NHL Eastern Conference Duel in the District

Washington Capitals vs Boston Bruins: NHL Eastern Conference Duel in the District
Fairly hot squads square off in National Hockey League puck betting action when the Boston Bruins roll into the District for a duel with the Washington Capitals tonight. Boston has recovered from a slow start to post a 6-4-1 record while Washington has sprinted out of the starting gate with an 8-3 mark. Puck drop is slated for 7:00 PM ET on November 6, 2015, at the Verizon Center in Washington, DC. We expect some lamp lighting in the US Capital tonight.

Washington Capitals: Throwing goose eggs at Boston recently

Looking to pick up where they left off against Boston last season, Washington is riding a streak of 186:43 minutes without allowing a goal by the Bruins. The run dates back to the third period of the Bruins 4-2 win in Washington on March 29, 2014. These clubs have clashed three times since that match during the 2013-14 NHL season and the Capitals, backed by G Braden Holtby, have posted 3-0 and 2-0 wins at home and a 4-0 victory in Beantown. The Capitals have had a day off to stew over their 5-2 mashing at Madison Square Garden versus the NY Rangers on Tuesday. Washington is two points back of the Rangers, and one point behind the Islanders in Metropolitan Division.

Boston Bruins: Doom and gloom forecast may have been a bit premature in Beantown

Following a horrible start, Boston lost three home games by a 16-7 margin to open their season; the Bruins have cranked up their offense and tightened up on defense. Boston has at least one point in seven of their last eight games and they are one point out of second place in the Atlantic Division with games in hand over Ottawa (1) and Tampa Bay (3) who are tied for second with 14 points. The numbers have turned around dramatically as Boston has outscored their opponents by a 35-20 combined final count during their last eight contests. Like the Caps, the Bruins head into this match off a loss as they dropped a 5-3 decision to the Dallas Stars at home on Tuesday night.

Bruins vs Capitals NHL Call: Washington G Braden Holtby (6-3 GAA 2.25) is up against Boston G Tuuka Rask (3-4 GAA 3.52) in the battle between the pipes. Recent history points to this contest being a low scoring affair but these teams both sport a prolific offense that is backed by a suspect defense. We like the OVER with an 500 unit on 4.5 alternate goal total posted at SportsInteraction. Get in on a busy nine-game NHL betting slate at SIA by clicking the odds image below.
