In a game from NHL, we will see Carolina Hurricanes at Washington Capitals.
The Carolina Hurricanes proved many people wrong this season. Nobody gave them a shot prior to the beginning of the season but they impressed everyone, including the biggest skeptics. They won 4 of their last 5 games. The team, however, is abysmal on the road. They have won just 2 out of their last 10 games when playing in Washington. The Hurricanes are also not playing very well against the Capitals as they have lost 8 of their last 28 games against them.
The Washington Capitals, on the other hand, are one of the strongest teams in the NHL this season. They have been in the postseason so many times in the past few years that they are capable of going on deep playoff runs without even taking a breather. The team is averaging 3.34 goals per game while allowing 3.02.
The Capitals are dominating the Hurricanes since I can remember myself. Carolina had a fantastic season and it will surely be an interesting series, however, the better team is clearly Washington and they will get the job with ease on Thursday.
