The Russian has not scored a single goal in the last six games. It doesn’t look anything like him.

On December 5, the NHL regular season game between Arizona and Washington will take place. The game starts at 5:00 Moscow time. Bookmakers give preference to the guests in their forecasts: you can bet that the capitals will win in regulation time with an odds of 2.23. The Coyotes’ success at the end of the 60 minutes was rated by experts at 2.85.

Odds of bookmakers for the NHL match “Arizona” – “Washington” on December 5, 2023

Analysis and forecast for the NHL game Arizona Coyotes – Washington Capitals (12/05/2023)

Six National Hockey League regular season games will take place on December 5. Among others, the game in which the local Arizona Coyotes and the Washington Capitals will face each other at the Mallet Arena in Tempe stands out. The first confrontation is scheduled for 5:00 Moscow time.

At the end of last season, the Coyotes finished last in the NHL standings, but in the summer they strengthened their roster. One of Arizona’s biggest acquisitions was Los Angeles defenseman Sean Durzi. In 23 games with his new club, he scored five goals and seven assists.

However, the performance is just a nice bonus. Arizona acquired Durzi and several other defenders primarily to improve quality on defense. As a result, in 23 matches, André Tourigny’s team conceded relatively few goals – 68 goals.

Additionally, the Coyotes missed most of their goals early in the season. Hockey players needed time to get used to the changes they had experienced. In the last four games, Arizona beat Vegas (2-0), Tampa Bay (3-1), Colorado (4-3 OT) and St. Louis (4-1).

However, the small number of goals conceded was also due to the Tempe club’s goalkeeper, Connor Ingram, being in excellent form. In those four games, he made a whopping 123 saves. Thanks to the efforts of the goaltender and others, the Coyotes climbed to seventh place in the Western Conference standings.

Ozdoev deserves praise:

Like Arizona, Washington finished last season without success. In the summer he changed coaches and significantly updated the squad. However, long-time leaders (Tom Wilson, Evgeny Kuznetsov and, of course, Alexander Ovechkin) remained in the team. Most of the problems have not gone away.

The Capitals continue to be very inconsistent and also play very mediocre hockey at times. It seems as if they are playing without enthusiasm. At the same time, Ovechkin is having the worst season of his career. His pursuit of Wayne Gretzky’s record has slowed noticeably.

Alexander sets anti-records. For the first time in two consecutive games he did not make a single shot on goal. The meeting with Los Angeles (2-1) was the fourth for the Russian without results. At the same time, he spent only 13 minutes and 49 seconds on the ice. These are the worst numbers of his entire NHL career.

In the last 13 games of the NHL regular season, the capital captain scored only three goals and gave the same number of assists. Washington stays afloat mainly thanks to its well-organized defensive play. In 21 matches, he only conceded 59 goals, but also scored nothing – 52.

Malcolm is great:

“Al-Hilal” – “Nassaji”. The former Zenit and Serbian player will serve as an example!

However, Carbery may be making the most of it. The fact that Washington is in seventh place in the Eastern Conference standings is largely due to him. For the coach, NHL experience comes first. This explains why the “capital” still does not have a well-functioning system.

You can bet on TM to play 5.5 goals at bookmakers with odds of 2.00. Other problems for Washington were the injury of Niklas Bäckström and, subsequently, his temporary retirement. In particular, due to his absence, Ovechkin has the weakest performance of his career.

I would like to believe that in the near future Alejandro will come to his senses and make up for lost time. So far, his actions have left a negative aftertaste. Many people are under the impression that the Russian is simply not ready for the season, although his age also plays a role.

Predictions and bets for the NHL match “Arizona” – “Washington” on December 5, 2023

The teams are unstable, so, in our opinion, it is not possible to point out a favorite. The best betting option seems to be a total of under 5.5 goals. Arizona and Washington have reliable goaltending and good defensive play. They concede relatively few goals, but at the same time they score few goals themselves. This is especially true for “metropolitans.”

Tender: total less than 5.5 goals per 2.00.
