Washington won the President’s Trophy for the second consecutive year for the best regular season record. Nashville is the defending Western Conference champions. Both teams got off to uneven starts in 2017-18 and have been turning it up a notch with the calendar hitting November.

Washington was 5-6-1 after the first month, but are 5-1-0 since then playing the shutdown kind of defense we’ve grown accustomed to seeing. The Capitals have allowed just 2.00 GPG through the streak while scoring just 2.67 GPG.

Last time out it took a shootout before they were able to dispatch the Oilers 2-1. Dimitry Orlov had the sole goal in regulation for Washington. T.J. Oshie had the shootout winner.

Alex Ovechkin had ten goals in the month of October, he’s at three in six games so far this month. Third line center Lars Eller has 2-4- as does D John Carlson to lead the way in scoring through the streak.

Nashville was 5-5-2 after they dropped their opening game of November. It was their fourth loss in five games. They’ve since won four straight against some of the best teams in the league. The victories have come against the Ducks, Kings, Blue Jackets and most recently a Stanley Cup rematch against the Penguins.

The team was also involved in the trade of the young season. Newly acquired C Kyle Turris came over a week ago from Ottawa as part of the three-team Matt Duchesne trade.

He made his debut on Saturday against the Penguins and had a goal and an assist in the win.

The game was a back and forth affair fitting of the quality of competition. Pittsburgh took a 1-0 lead early and then erased a 3-1 and 4-3 deficit to force extra time.

The deciding shootout goal came off the stick of Filip Forsberg. Forsberg has been dynamite this year and leads the team with 8-8-16. D PK Subban is one of a trio of elite defensemen each averaging over 25 minutes for the Predators. He’s got 4-8-12 on the season.

Washington is 18th scoring 2.83 GPG and 18th allowing 2.94 GPG.

Nashville is 20th scoring 2.75 GPG and tied for 13th allowing 2.81 GPG.

Bovada has the Predators favorites at 145-moneyline with the total sitting at 5½ at MyBookie.
