Devils at Capitals Final NHL Betting Analysis

All signs point to New Jersey’s 6-0 beat down of Washington the last time these two faced each other as nothing more than an anomaly. The Caps didn’t play much hockey in that match, but Washington’s a much different squad now, while New Jersey hasn’t been good at all lately.

The Devils are on a 3-7 slide in their last 10. They’ve gone 1-4 in their last 5. New Jersey can play Washington tough for about a period, but the Caps should win this by at least 2 goals.
