Washington vs Columbus: prediction for the NHL fixture

The Capitals square off against the Blue Jackets in the National Hockey League on December 5. We made predictions for this game, which you can find below.

Washington Capitals

Washington are only one point behind Florida in the Eastern Conference standings. Recently, the Capitals played against the Panthers, and were close to recording a win in regulation, but they allowed the opponent to make a comeback. After that, Washington lost to Chicago in a shootout (3:4 SO). 

The Capitals have looked solid throughout the season and they score 3 or more goals in almost every game. Also, Peter Laviolette's men lost only 1 home game out of 12 in regulation.

Columbus Blue Jackets

Columbus don't have a very strong line-up, but they keep fighting for points in every single match. The Blue Jackets recently were on a three-game winning streak, but they lost the last 3 fixtures to St. Louis (3:6), Nashville (0:6), and Dallas (2:3).

Columbus definitely are more successful at home, where they've earned most of their points, and on their travels they recorded just one victory in regulation time. 

Betting trends

Washington IT over 3.5 goals

In 2 out of 3 games, Columbus conceded more than 3 goals.

2nd period: total over 1.5 goals

In Washington's last 5 games, more than 1 goal was scored in the second period.


Washington suffered 2 defeats in a row, and today they will be looking to bounce back. Columbus are going through a rough patch and are on a losing streak, having conceded 15 goals in the last 3 games. We think that Washington will be able to eke a win here.
