NHL Live Betting: Senators vs. CapitalsPublished December 16, 2015 by Sol FH
The Ottawa Senators vs Washington Capitals live at 00:00 GMT with a number of betting markets available.
The NHL regular season is in full swing. The top teams are making it increasingly harder for the mid-table to dream about reaching the playoffs, but it is still early and much could happen in the coming months. One of the biggest games on tonight is between the Senators and the Capitals. The Senators are in third place in the Eastern Atlantic Division, while the Capitals are in the lead in the Metropolitan with 44 points. The Capitals took over first place, from the Montreal Canadiens over the entire Eastern Conference after they beat the struggling Pittsburgh Penguins' star-studded lineup on Monday Night.
Last season the Capitals beat the Senators twice, but Ottawa proved that they can beat any team in the league after they rallied to beat Washington in their most recent gam on April 4. With the Capitals showing their huge shots on goal capacity, Sen's backup Andrew Hammond will have a hard time dealing with the expected barrage. Hammond has played just four NHL games this season after a groin injury put him on the bench for quite a good portion of the year. Hammond has excellent stats at 22-1-4 and a 1.84 goals against record, but with the talent that Washington will have on the ice tonight, he needs to be amazing.
The Capitols are 11-3-1 at home this season, which is the reason they are atop the Eastern Conference. Coach Barry Trotz is enjoying watching the younger part of his roster develop under stars like Ovechkin and co. They were able to totally shut down Evgeni Malkin and Sidney Crosby on Monday Night, which is a feat in itself considering.
