Seattle vs Washington: prediction for the NHL fixture
Seattle struggle to stay competitive in the NHL. They lost the last 6 games in regulation time, most of them at the home court. For example, the Kraken got thrashed by Anaheim (4:7) and Colorado (3:7). Goaltenders Driedger and Grubauer were both unreliable in these fixtures.
The biggest problem of Seattle is their poor defensive play, which is the reason they often suffer devastating defeats. On average, the Kraken concede four goals per game, which is too much even for the NHL.
Washington have gained good momentum and continue to earn points. They haven't lost in regulation for seven matches, and suffered only one defeat in this period - at Anaheim in overtime (2:3 OT). In the other two away games, the Capitals crushed San Jose (4:0) and beat Los Angeles (2:0). Goaltender Samsonov made 56 saves in two games, performing two shutouts in a row.
Overall, Washington are in great form and can fight for the leading position in the East.
Seattle conceded in each period in the last 6 games.
Washington didn't concede in the last 2 games.
Seattle suffer one devastating defeat after another. Washington, on the contrary, show excellent results in their recent matches. We do not doubt the Capitals' victory here.
