NHL Game Preview: Washington Capitals vs. Anaheim Ducks - Date: 2/17/2019 Time: 9:00 PM EST Venue: Honda Center, Anaheim, CA, 92806 / The Washington Capitals will head into a Sunday evening game at Anaheim apparently awake and alert following a thrashing of the San Jose Sharks, one of the top teams in the Western Conference. Not even at the halfway point of a six-game road trip, the Capitals already have experienced a bevy of emotion, from the disappointment of Tuesday's 3-0 defeat at Columbus, to the hard-working reward of Thursday's 5-1 statement against the Sharks. Consider the defeat to the Blue Jackets a wake-up call as the Capitals move into a back-to-back scenario against the Ducks on Sunday and the Los Angeles Kings on Monday night. Free Pick. There was more for the defending champions to celebrate than just the victory over the Sharks, a team that entered with a six-game home winning streak and had just four losses on home ice all season. Best Sports Picks of the Day. T. J. Oshie reached the 500-point plateau for his career and goaltender Braden Holtby reached 20 wins for a franchise-best seventh consecutive season." It just seemed like from the drop of the puck, guys were excited to play," Oshie said, according to the Washington Post. "Guys were just happy and having fun, and if anyone knows anything about this team, we play our best when we're having fun." A sense of fun seems to have been missing for some time as the Capitals are 8-8-4 since Jan. 1, but they suddenly seem to have a sense of urgency with seven weeks remaining in the regular season. Sports Handicappers. The Capitals' most-recent top form is not exactly what a floundering Ducks squad needs at this point of their journey. They are in the midst of a 22-27-9 season, and at 53 points, they were better than just three other NHL teams at the start of play SaturdayTwo games under the guidance of new coach Bob Murray, the Ducks have scored just one goal, but they did earn a 1-0 victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday. The Ducks will enter the finale of a three-game homestand having lost 20 of their last 23 games, a drought that cost former head coach Randy Carlyle his job. Murray, who is also the team's vice president and general manager, is getting a closer look at his team in advance of the Feb. 25 trade deadline. One game after a feisty and physical victory over the Canucks, as Murray made his bench debut, the Ducks had little to offer against Boston on Friday, falling behind less than six minutes into the game and never recovering in a 3-0 defeat. The Ducks have scored just 2.16 goals per game, last in the NHL, with the next closest team at 2.40 per game." It's unfortunate we're not scoring goals," Ducks defenseman Josh Manson said. "You need to score goals in this league to win games. You can't expect to shut teams out every night. It's unfortunate, but we know we have to score. It doesn't change anything for us." With goaltender John Gibson day-to-day with multiple nagging injuries, the Ducks have used Kevin Boyle in goal the past two games -- the first two starts of his NHL career. Boyle has been a bright spot with a shutout and two goals allowed Friday (one Bruins goal was an empty-net). As Gibson makes progress toward a return, the Ducks also have goaltender Chad Johnson (head), right wing Patrick Eaves (illness) and right wing Kevin Roy (upper body) on day-to-day status.--Field Level Media
