Washington Capitals vs Carolina Hurricanes
Can the current champions defend the title? It's tough. But they can make a victory in this game. They have a great team. So, Ovechkin (51 goals, best scorer in NHL), Backstrom (52 assists) and Kuznetsov (51 assists), can be a threat to each team. Wilson too. However, they have a problem with the goalkeeper. Copley is much weaker than Holtby. I believe, if everything goes well, Holtby will take part in this match. So, only this will be missed is Kempny.
Otherwise, hosts have 4 wins and 1 defeat in the last five h2h matches.
On the other hand, visitors have made a great result this season. They entered the play off. Of course, they have less experience. But they will try to give strong resistance to this game. Williams, Aho, Niederreiter, Staal and others have a solid capacity. At the last match, they were better against Philadelphia, and they won 7 positions in the Eastern Conference with this victory. So, they had one point more than Columbus Blue Jackets who made a big surprise against probably the best team in NHL Tampa.
All in all, I expect a slight advantage on the hosts in this one.
