The Stanley Cup Finals series is back in action this evening as the Washington Capitals will head to the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada to battle with the Vegas Golden Knights in game two of their best-of-seven series. The Golden Knights won the first game with a score of 6-4.
Washington Capitals Form
The Washington Capitals did not start well in the Finals as they lost 6-4 in the first fame. They had a 2-1 lead in the game and then they had a 4-3 lead early in the 3rd, however Golden Knights scored three goals in the final 17:19 of the game. The Capitals away record stand at 28-23 and they have averaged 3.08 goals per game and have allowed 3.10 goals per game in those games.
On the offensive side of the game, the Caps are ranked 2nd in scoring during the playoffs at 3.50 goals per game, converting on 28.3% of their chances. At the defensive side of the game, during the postseason, they are placed on the 5th spot in goals allowed, conceding an average of 2.65 goals per game, allowing teams to convert on 25.8% of their chances.
Vegas Golden Knights Form
The Golden Knights enjoyed a good start to the Stanley Cup Final as they won the first home game in the series. They had to come from behind twice in order to win the game. It is a historic season for the Knights as they have the chance to be the first team that won the Stanley Cup in their debut season. The Golden Knights home record stands at 36-13 and they have averaged 3.61 runs per game and they have allowed 2.41 runs per game in those games.
On the offensive side of the game, Vegas has been above average in the postseason so far as they are placed 6th in scoring at 3.06 goals per game, converting on 19.2% of their chances. They have been very strong at the defensive part of the game, during the playoffs, as they are the 2nd best team in goals allowed, conceding an average of 1.94 goals per game, allowing the opposing teams to convert on 17.2% of their chances.
The Golden Knights have now won their last five games in a row and have really rolled at home as their record stands at 36-13 for the season, including 7-1 in the playoffs so far. On the other side, the Capitals are a really solid team on the road and they showed that against Nashville and Tampa Bay. However, the Knights are the better defensive team and I think that they will utilize their home ground advantage in this game. I go for Vegas to win this second game of the Stanley Cup Finals.
