The big news coming out of Washington has been the firing of head coach Bruce Boudreau. Ovechkin and the Capitals have been in a terrible funk and as since you can’t fire the whole team it is usually the coach that gets the axe. Dale Hunter will take over the coaching duties for the Capitals. Hunter is a former Washington Capitals captain that his number retires by the Caps. He has had great success in the OHL being the fastest coach to 300 and 400 wins ever. Can the coaching change spark this slumping Capitals team?

A great angle when it comes to sports betting is to back the team playing for its new coach for the very first time. That is not the only reason to consider betting the Capitals tonight. Have the Capitals really been as bad as the media has portrayed them. The Capitals are still a decent 12-9-1 on the season. And look at their home record. Even with their struggles the Capitals boast a 8-2-1 home record. Currently the Capitals are a -125 (or 1.80) home favorite. This is the highest odd Washington has been all season long on home ice. They hosted the Detroit Red Wings on Oct 22 are were a bigger favorite (-145) then they are tonight. And lastly the Blues have been playing some decent hockey in large part due to the play of Brian Elliott in goal. Elliott leads the NHL in GAA (1.31) and Save % (.951). However, Elliott is not playing tonight. Blues
#1 backup goaltender Halak will get the start in goal tonight. Halak is just 3-7 on the season with a .895 save %. I’ll take the Capitals for 1.80 (-125) at Bodog Sportsbook in this game.
Proline Odds: The Capitals to win on Proline are paying 1.45 (LOL!).
