Analysis and forecast for the NHL match Montreal Canadiens – Washington Capitals (02/18/2024)

Numerous National Hockey League regular season games will take place on February 18.

The first confrontation is scheduled for 15:00 Moscow time.

Montreal is one of the oldest and most successful clubs in the NHL, but the last few years have been extremely unfortunate for them. The Canadiens are 13th in the Eastern Conference standings. The distance with Washington, which occupies 12th place, is two points and the capital has a few more games left.

In the last 10 games, Martin Saint Louis’ team only defeated the Islanders (4-3), only Washington (5-2) and Anaheim (5-0). They also lost in overtime to Pittsburgh (2:3 overtime). In all other matches the team suffered defeats in regulation time.

During this period, the Canadians scored 31 goals. In terms of performance, they are generally doing well. One of the people who makes the difference and helps hold on to the points is Nick Suzuki. In 54 games, the 24-year-old Canadian forward scored 19 goals and 33 assists.

However, the work of attackers is often ruined by the complete lack of reliability in defense. Despite the efforts of Sam Montembeault and Jake Allen, in 54 games Montreal lost 194 goals; only San Jose, which is second to last in the NHL standings, has more goals.

It is in vain that they do not believe in the Russians:

For Alexander Ovechkin, this is a great opportunity to close the gap with Wayne Gretzky on the list of the best scorers in NHL history. He amounts to 58 heads, but is declining rapidly. In each of the last six games, the 38-year-old capital captain has scored goals.

The last time Ovechkin had such a scoring streak was more than five years ago. The recent short rest had a very beneficial effect on his tone. The rivals were mostly leaders. However, their reliable defenders and goalkeepers could not prevent Alexander from scoring.

The only bad thing is that Ovechkin’s efforts are always insufficient. In the last six games, Spencer Carbery’s team only beat Boston (3-0). In addition to Montreal, they lost to Dallas (4-5 overtime), Florida (2-4), Vancouver (2-3 overtime) and Colorado (3-6). The Caps’ chances of making the playoffs are getting slimmer.

However, this is now unlikely to bother fans in the capital too much. All attention is focused on Ovechkin’s pursuit of Wayne Gretzky’s record. You can bet on Russia to score in the next match at bookmakers with odds of 1.80. It is noteworthy that he scored points in each of the last six head-to-head meetings.

Recently, Russia’s honorable coach Yuri Novikov shared his opinion that the intrigue surrounding Ovechkin’s quest for Gretzky’s achievement is being deliberately fueled. He also admired Alejandro’s physical and psychological limits. Novikov noted that the hockey player sets an example for others that in hockey the impossible can be achieved even at that age.

This season, Ovechkin participated in 49 games, in which he scored 14 goals and gave 23 assists. The Russian faces the next match with a good reserve of strength. He had four days to regain energy after the Boston game.

Predictions and bets for the NHL match “Montreal” – “Washington” on February 18, 2024

Both teams are very unstable and are at the bottom of the Eastern Conference standings. It is impossible to identify a favorite. But you can bet Ovechkin’s scoring streak will last up to seven games. The Russian burst in. We believe he will be able to score against Montreal, who are not doing well defensively. Head-to-head history for this result only.

Tender: Alexander Ovechkin will score at odds of 1.80.
