Montreal is at the bottom of the tournament table of the Eastern Conference. The Canadians are in a deep decline – in the last five games Julien’s players have lost five times in a row, conceding at least three pucks. They have won three away games in the last five; in four games, one of the teams scored just one puck each. In the Atlantic Division are on the sixth place and scored 62 points.
They prefer to play attacking and dynamic hockey, but they often let down by the defense. In the extreme game Claude Julien’s players lost to an outsider of the league Detroit with a minimal handicap in the score (3-4). Previously Montreal lost to Dallas (3-4 OT).
Throughout the regular season Washington Capitals led the Eastern Conference tournament table, but now it’s down to position 4. Such a drop is due to the fact that for 5 matches in a row they can not hit the gates of their rivals more than three times, the team leaders have stopped scoring points. Also, do not forget that the Capitals have never been famous for a reliable goal line, they have always focused on the attack.
Washington is far from in the best conditions and has already fallen to the fourth line of the Eastern Conference. In five extreme confrontations, Todd Reirden’s players suffered four defeats. The only victory they had over Colorado Evelanche with a minimal gap in the score (2-3), and then they should have lost this meeting, but made an incredible comeback and got back from the score (0-2). In the next two games they lost to Arizona (1-3) and couldn’t cope with the Knights (3-2).
In the previous game with the Knights, T.J. Oshi could not help the team who took a double and reduced the deficit to a minimum. Ovechkin continues not to score in the fifth consecutive match.

Canadiens vs Capitals Prediction
Of course, the Capitals are not in the best game form, as evidenced by their statistics of extreme matches. However, we should not forget that they outperform their opponents by all parameters. Detroit has the worst realization of scoring chances, and they managed to hit the goal of Montreal 5 times. Our experts do not think that Claude Julien’s boys will be able to recover from such an offensive loss, so we propose to bet on the victory of Washington Capitals in the main time.
Our prediction: Washington Capitals will win.
