Detroit Red Wings vs Washington Capitals Match Preview

While the Washington Capitals are comfortably in playoff position, they are in a dogfight for first place in the Metropolitan Division following a stretch of pedestrian hockey dating to the All-Star break. Holding a one-point edge over Philadelphia atop the division, the Capitals will kick off a three-game homestand on Thursday against the league-worst Detroit Red Wings.

Washington lost for the third time in its last four and was denied in its bid to post back-to-back wins for only the second time since the All-Star break in Monday's 3-2 shootout defeat to Buffalo. "This time of the year, we want to be getting to the next level, and we are staying average," goaltender Braden Holtby said. "We got to find a way to push forward here." The Capitals have won five in a row against the Red Wings, who were denied in their bid for a season high-tying third straight victory in Tuesday's 5-2 home loss to Carolina. "We've been playing some great hockey," forward Robby Fabbri said after Detroit was limited to two goals or fewer for the 11th time in 14 games. "We just gotta keep a calm head and keep going, even when things aren't going our way."

The fans at Capital One Arena will be treated to a game between the Detroit Red Wings and the Washington Capitals when they take their seats on Thursday.

Oddsmakers opened the Capitals as -365-moneyline favorites versus the Red Wings, while the game's total opened at 6.

Washington lost its last outing, a 3-2 result against the Sabres on March 09. Bettors who backed the Sabres at +139 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (5) sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.

The Red Wings were a 5-2 loser in their most recent outing at home against the Hurricanes. That made winners of bettors who got Carolina at -235 on the moneyline, while the total score (7) was good news for OVER bettors.

Washington Capitals vs Detroit Red Wings

ABOUT THE RED WINGS (17-49-5): Tyler Bertuzzi went nearly a full month without a goal, failing to score in 13 games before converting in each of the last three to boost his team-leading total to 21, matching his career high from last season. Bertuzzi, who has three assists during the three-game point streak, also eclipsed his personal best of 47 points from last season but he has only one assist in six meetings versus Washington. Forward Sam Gagner will miss Thursday's game while rookie Filip Zadina will not accompany the team on the two-game trek.

ABOUT THE CAPITALS (41-20-8): Washington did pick up points in all three games on its road trip (1-0-2) but was forced to earn one the hard way by rallying for a pair of third-period goals against Buffalo as Alex Ovechkin scored his co-league leading 48th before assisting on the tying tally. Ovechkin is nearing a major milestone, needing a pair of goals to join Hall of Famers Wayne Gretzky and Mike Bossy as the only players in history with nine 50-goal seasons. Ovechkin has eight goals in his last 10 overall and had a hat trick against Detroit on Nov. 30.
