However, Washington rarely makes mistakes at Verizon Center, where the Capitals have recorded twelve victories in seventeen games this season, nine of them in regulation time (12-5-0 47/31).
New Jersey continues to struggle mightily, as the Devils won just three of their previous thirteen games in December (3-8-2 27/49) and are still on the last spot in the Eastern Conference, seven points behind the eighth team in the standings.
In addition to that, the Devils were limited to two or fewer goals in nine of their last ten games and will try to avoid seventh consecutive loss on the road, where five of the previous six games have been lost by two or more goals difference (0-0-1-5 8/25).
Taylor Hall (rw / 8+15) will miss Thursday’s game with a lower-body injury.
Braden Holtby (15-8-3 with a 2.08 GAA and .926 SV%) will start for Washington.Holtby allowed four goals on 31 shots in Tuesday’s 3-4 loss in Brooklyn, but is 5-2-2 with a 1.65 GAA and . in his previous nine starts in December.
Keith Kinkaid (3-3-2 with a 2.70 GAA and .922 SV%) will start for New Jersey.The 27-year-old goaltender gave up two goals on 30 shots in the Devils’ 1-3 loss in Ottawa on Dec. 17, but is 1-2-1 with a 3.60 GAA and .908 SV% in his previous four starts.
I think that the Washington Capitals are capable to cover this handicap.
