Washington vs Winnipeg: Cruising Capitals Visit Low Flying Jets

Washington vs Winnipeg: Cruising Capitals Visit Low Flying Jets
Matinee National Hockey League action is our free pick focus as the white hot Washington Capitals visit the low flying Winnipeg Jets to open a busy slate of ten puck betting contests at the BetOnline sportsbook today. The Capitals have cruised to six straight wins while the Jets have been largely grounded recently. Puck drop for this Eastern versus Western Conference clash is slated for 3:00 PM ET on December 5, 2015, at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Washington Capitals: Closing the Canadiens gap in the East

Winners of six straight matches, by a 24-12 count, Washington is closing in on the top NHL Eastern Conference perch currently occupied by Montreal. The Capitals 18-5-1 overall record is good for 37 points – just four shy of conference leading Montreal who have played three more games than the Caps. Washington is playing at a high level at both ends of the ice as their 77 goals scored is good for the fifth best mark in the league while their 53 goals allowed is the second lowest in the NHL. Led by Evgeny Kuznetsov (26) and Alex Ovechkin (23) nine players have at posted least 13 points. 

Winnipeg Jets: Sinking like a stone after a hot start to their NHL 2015-16 season

It’s been a tale of two months for Winnipeg as the Jets followed a rock solid October start with a meltdown in November. Winnipeg opened the year with a 7-3-1 record but they stumbled to 4-9-1 mark last month. The Jets weren’t very competitive during their slide as they were outscored by a 53-35 combined count in November. On the bright side, the Jets pulled out of their free fall as they opened December with a 6-1 thrashing of the Toronto Maple Leafs at home on Wednesday. Blake Wheeler (26 PTS) and Bryan Little (21) lead a group of eight Jets who have produced 140 of the 195 points Winnipeg has posted this season. Goaltending has been a problem on the prairies.

Jets vs Capitals NHL Call: Washington has dominated Winnipeg recently as the Capitals have won eight of the last nine meetings and they’ve outscored the Jets by a 37-17 margin in those matches. This is the second and final meeting of the season between these teams after Washington posted a 5-3 victory at home on November 25. Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby (16-4-0 GAA 1.96) gives Washington an advantage here as he is riding a career high eight-game winning streak and his 16 wins is the most in the NHL.
