Vancouver ranks nearly last in the NHL at No. 27 in goals scored this season, not even topping 100 yet. However, their defense makes up for it by only giving up 102 goals, ranking No. 13.
Unlike Vancouver, Washington likes to score often. He is ranked No. 6 in the NHL in goals scored with 123 goals. He has also allowed just 102 goals, ranking 13th in the NHL, tied with Vancouver.
The game will be very close outside of Washington’s scoring potential. If Vancouver can keep Alex Ovechkin off the stat sheet, they could pull off this upset.
