Minnesota Wild vs Washington Capitals Prediction

The over has hit in nine of Washington’s last ten tilts and the goals are flowing both ways; they are good to score in bunches and love to really show up for these big games, so I think they turn it on tonight on that end. They have conceded 21 goals across their last five including a 6-1 beatdown in their last outing as Carolina finally got their revenge for the earlier meetings.

Washington is on five days of rest here facing a Minnesota squad that just started their road trip and are on the second day of back-to-back here to begin. They beat a very talented, relentless Carolina squad in Raleigh last night which is not easy to do so we can hope for them to show a little wear here tonight.

Fleury stood on his head last night so Cam Talbot will be between the pipes this evening. Talbot has been solid and is fighting for the right to start in the playoffs; you can expect him to play well but it should not matter in the end. Regardless of how good he plays he is good to give up at least a couple goals on most nights and the overall pace at which this game will be played and the offensive talent that Washington possess are going to be enough to do the rest.

I said going forward Minnesota overs would be something to be a bit more cautious of playing due to the addition of MAF and it has played out accurately so far. This Minnesota squad was one of the best 1P o1.5 and full game over teams in the league for the strong majority of the season but have cut back on it lately.

They are trying to tighten up defensively and prepare for the postseason which they have done so well; in the end however, the potential for goals to flow in their games still exists. We cashed big on the Pittsburgh vs Minnesota game the other night playing the right spot and I believe this one is one again here tonight.

With Talbot in net and Minny on the back-to-back you can expect them to turn it up early like they do so well. Washington can start slow at times but with them well-rested on home ice here and not facing MAF, I think this one's a show.
