Carolina Hurricanes vs Washington Capitals Best Bet: Value in a Barking Road Dog

Carolina Hurricanes vs Washington Capitals Best Bet: Value in a Barking Road Dog

In classic Ej fashion, our resident NHL guru has decided on handing our readers a barking road dog to start the week on Monday. With more value than you can shake a hockey stick at, the Capitals hit the road for the first game on back-to-back nights, and the line setters have given the Canes entirely too much credit for being home on ice.

Carolina Hurricanes vs Washington Capitals Preview

November 1, 00:00 (UK time)

The Washington Capitals are wrapping up a 4-game road trip on Monday night, but they also have to prepare for a Tuesday affair when they finally return home to take on Las Vegas. Now that is a daunting task having the best team in the Western Conference coming to your barn on the back end of two games in two nights., It’s not difficult enough to wrap up a 4-game road trip on Monday, but then you get Vegas waiting for you when you finally get there.

Welcome to your schedule, so there is no crying in hockey and when I saw this stupid offer of 2.65 at Bet365, I knew we have plenty of readers who use that bookmaker that would love that value. Washington being told they have no chance to win this hockey game is asburd. 

The Caps have won 2 of the 3 games from this road trip, and we all just watched them shut out the Predators on the NHL Network the other night, 3 – 0. At least I watched it, and you want to tell me they have no chance against the Canes at 2.65? What? Aww, they have to play Vegas tomorrow, cry me a river!

Would I like to have Nick Backstrom in the lineup? Sure I would, wouldn’t you? We know that he is certainly an addition anyone would take, but Carolina is still without Pacioretty too, so that is a push for me. When Max gets back on the ice,  he can score 30 goals if he is healthy in any campaign, so not seeing him dressed for Carolina tonight is fine by me.

Unless the bus crashes on the way to the venue, God forbid, of course, The Caps have as good a chance to win this game as any other game they’ll play all year. Carolina has lost 3 of their last 5 games, and the two wins they found came against Vancouver and the Flyers. Wow, that is so impressive I can’t even feel my legs from excitement.

The Great 8 will have his sweater on, the Caps are probably looking forward to the challenge of playing tonight and having to go home to play Vegas tomorrow and talk about a test of your fortitude, right? 

I see the goalie matchup likely being Darcy Kuem[er (4 – 3, 2.47 GAA; 0.92 Save%) vs Frederik Anderson (3 – 2, 2.81 GAA; 0.90 Save%). The Caps earned wins from 3 of the 4 regular season meetings between the teams last season, so I hope that carries into this year on top of the extreme value we’re getting with the road dog in this spot.
