Caps Avalanche Preview/Predictions

Tonight the Caps continue their five game homestand by hosting the surprisingly hot Colorado Avalanche. Led by new head coach Patrick Roy, first overall draft pick Nathan Mackinnon, and red-hot goaltender Semyon Varlamov (remember him?), the Avs are off to a 4-0 start and are number one in a tough Central Division.

Let's get right to the predictions.

Me (0-2): Caps 3-2. I'm hoping I won't go 0-3 after tonight, but I have faith in the Caps. These two teams seem evenly matched. Varlamov has been good, and will be going up against a stellar offense. Michal Neuvirth, who may be getting the start today, was great in relief for Holtby against Calgary, and will be going up against a team which does not score much. This will really come down to whether the Caps offense can overcome the Avs defense and if the Caps can take the pressure play the Avs have. I think they will and the Caps will improve to 2-3-0 and I will improve to 1-2.

TI-84 (2-0): Avs 4-3. Come on guys, make this super-predicting calculator wrong for once!

Magic Eraser (1-1): Caps 4-1. I doubt the score, but hopefully the outcome will come through.

So tune in at 7 tonight to watch the game and here's hoping for a Caps victory.
