After the break, one of the Western Conference leaders is still having trouble getting a result. Nashville played two games and lost both of them. Although the opponents were strong, they lost 3:4 on the road to Dallas and Winnipeg that gained form.
In their home game against Winnipeg, the Predators took a quick 2:0 lead but suffered consecutive penalties. As a result, the opponents managed three power plays and hit an empty net in the end. Nashville lost with a score of 2:5. Although the loss could not be called significant, it was insulting. The Predators are still at the top of the Western Conference standings. Right now, the team is in 3rd place there. Only Colorado and Minnesota are higher.
Alexander Ovechkin's team is falling in the regular season's second half. The Capitals have suffered two defeats in three games. The Capitals' opponents were the season's outsiders. First, Washington lost 3:4 on home ice to Columbus. Then, on the road, they beat the last team in the league, Montreal, with a score of 5:2. Then, they could do nothing against Ottawa (1:4). Two points in three games against non-playoff contenders is a very disappointing result.
The Capitals themselves are still 7th in the East. However, recent results do not allow Peter Laviolette's team to hope for an easy life at the end of the regular season. Washington will have to fight hard for a playoff spot by all appearances.
Expert Betting Tips
Nashville lost two games in a row, but that hardly made them weaker. In addition, the level of their opponents was also very high. Almost no one has beaten Dallas on the road this season. In their game against Winnipeg, the Predators' frequent penalties decided the outcome.
Washington's defeats are indicative of the team's serious game problems. Scoring only once on home ice against Ottawa is a real letdown. The Capitals' slump has become more protracted, and it remains to be seen whether the situation will be resolved at all before the end of the regular season.
The prediction is that Nashville will be closer to a win, but the game can also end outside of regular time. Washington will have to do their best after a 1:4 defeat by Ottawa.
