NHL Odds: Capitals versus Canadiens this Thursday

Just two games remain in the regular season schedule for the Montreal Canadiens and Washington Capitals. At this point in the season, the Washington Capitals have a playoff spot secured and are attempting to clinch top spot in the Metropolitan Division. They have a three-point edge over the New York Islanders and will face them in the final game of the season. The Montreal Canadiens, on the other hand, are fighting to stay alive in the Eastern Conference playoff race.

If you excuse losses to the Blue Jackets and Hurricanes, the Canadiens have been playing lights-out as of late. They’re 6-1-1 in their last eight games, but those two losses came to the teams they needed to beat the most. As a result, they continue to be in a must-win mentality and will need some help along the way if they hope to play playoff hockey.

Things are less dire for the Caps. They’re sitting pretty atop their division and have won four of their last five games, including a tremendous win against the league-leading Tampa Bay Lightning. If recent play is any indication, the Caps have a real opportunity to repeat as Stanley Cup Champions in 2019. Tune in for a game that’ll be filled with playoff implications this Thursday at 7:00 PM ET.
