Red Wings, Capitals Look To Break Out Of Losing Streaks Friday

Posted by Don Melrose on 11/6/2014 8:53:43 PM

One of the most difficult things for a team to deal with in the NHL is an extended losing streak. Players start second guessing themselves and trying to do too much, coaches overwork their players, fans begin to turn on the team and it certainly doesn’t help that the bounces seem to always go the other way. The Detroit Red Wings are in the midst of a three game slide but that is nothing compared to what the Washington Capitals are dealing with heading in to Friday night’s action.

New Jersey Devils @ Detroit Red Wings

Friday, 7:30 PM ET

Detroit has lost three straight although they managed to secure two points in shootout and overtime losses to the Buffalo Sabres and New York Rangers. A lack of discipline has been the biggest issue for Mike Babcock’s team and it won’t get any easier during a four game home stand with the Tampa Bay Lightning, Chicago Blackhawks, and Montreal Canadiens all set to visit. The Red Wings can’t be complacent returning home on Friday against a Devils team that is still very dangerous despite their recent play. New Jersey will provide Detroit with a tough test at home but the Red Wings will find a way to get back on track in a desperate situation.

NHL Betting Pick: Detroit Red Wings

Washington Capitals @ Chicago Blackhawks

Friday, 8:30 PM ET

As bad as things might seem for Detroit they are even worse for a Washington team that has lost five straight and will limp in to Chicago for another tough test against one of the best teams in the league. The Blackhawks offense finally got on track with a 5-0 win over the Montreal Canadiens and that’s bad news for a Capitals team that continues to find ways to blow leads. Washington has allowed four or more goals in each of its five straight losses and while Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom continue to produce they haven’t been able to make up for the critical errors at the other end of the ice. The Capitals could do a lot of things right in this game and still lose to a much better team on the road and that could put them in a very dangerous situation as they continue to second guess themselves.

Arizona Coyotes @ Anaheim Ducks

Friday, 10:00 PM ET

Former Washington head coach Bruce Boudreau has to be much happier in Anaheim where his first place Ducks are giving up an average of just 1.9 goals per game this season even despite injuries to their top two goalies in John Gibson and Frederik Andersen. Gibson is set to miss six weeks with a lower body injury but Andersen has practiced since Tuesday and should be back in net on Friday night. Anaheim will also hope to see Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry back after both players were sent home with the Flu before Wednesday’s 3-2 overtime loss to the New York Islanders. The Coyotes are allowing a league-worst 3.6 goals per game and if the Ducks can score three or more then they should have no problem securing two points with Andersen shutting the door.
