Washington vs New York Rangers: prediction for the NHL fixture
The Washington Capitals got off to a bad start in the preseason. In the first game, a few key players were unavailable for the Capitals, but once they joined the team, Washington showed good results. The team enters the new season on the back of two victories over Boston (4:3 B) and Philadelphia (5:3).
The Capitals have many experienced players, such as Alexander Ovechkin, but there are no youngsters in the team, and we think that this will become a problem for Washington in the upcoming season.
New York Rangers
The New York Rangers have a powerful roster and their attacking line looks fantastic. Such players as Zibanejad, Kakko, Panarin can turn around any game. The Rangers' biggest challenge for the season is to make the playoffs and to achieve that they will have to improve their defensive performance.
The Rangers finished the preseason with three victories in a row. They defeated Boston (4:3 B), New Jersey (6:2), and the Islanders (5:4). Filip Chytil had a great game against the Islanders and scored a hat-trick.
In 4 out of 5 games against Washington, the Rangers scored in the third period.
The Rangers scored more than 2 goals in the last 3 games.
The Rangers have looked good in the last preseason games and are ready for the new NHL season. In our opinion, they look more interesting in the attack than the Capitals. The Rangers have several outstanding forwards who will definitely contribute to the team's success in the upcoming game.
