Offense Noticeably Absent In Capitals Outings

The Washington Capitals have conjured up images of high-scoring, action-packed games for several years but it has been quite the opposite as of late. The Caps and their opponents are averaging a combined 4.8 goals per game in Washington’s last six outings, which has led to the UNDER going 5-1. Will offense once again be in short supply when the Caps host the Edmonton Oilers Sunday?

Shark Bites
  • The UNDER is 5-1 in the Capitals last 6 games at home.
  • The Oilers are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games on the road.
  • The Oilers are 2-10 SU in their last 12 games on the road vs the Capitals.

All the above being said the Caps had no problem finding the back of the net the first time these two teams met almost three weeks ago. The Capitals won that affair easily 5-2 despite not once getting the man advantage. Alex Ovechkin – who had three assists vs the Oilers – also finds himself riding a four-game point streak.

This contest will close out a four-game road trip for the Oilers who have opened that slate with a 2-1-0 mark thanks to overtime victories over the New Jersey Devils and New York Islanders. Though Conor McDavid is unquestionably the focal point of the offense, Milan Lucic has been performing well during the road trip with one goal and three assists.
