Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Washington Capitals: Picks, Predictions, Odds and Player Props

Read the latest betting picks, predictions, odds and player props for Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Washington Capitals in the NHL, courtesy of our friends at Daily Faceoff.

The Maple Leafs (38-20-9) sit third in the Atlantic Division enter Wednesday night, while the Capitals (33-25-9) are a point out of the second Wild Card place in the Eastern Conference.

Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Washington Capitals predictions

Washington returns home after a long six game western road trip to continue their push for a playoff spot. As of March 20, the Capitals are in the third wild card slot after a big 5-2 win against the Calgary Flames. They've won three straight games and five of their last seven. They are playing their best hockey of the season.

That's led by an Alex Ovechkin resurgence. Ovechkin has 14 goals in his last 30 games after a very slow start to the season. Dylan Strome has 32 points in his last 33 games. Those two are the heartbeat of this Washington team.

It's Washington's first game back from a long road trip on the opposite side of North America. They're facing an up tempo, fast, skilled team in Toronto.

The Leafs are playing decent hockey despite a lack of production from some of their best players. John Tavares, Auston Matthews, Tyler Bertuzzi, and Maxi Domi all have five points in their last nine games. Mitch Marner is out of the lineup with a high-ankle sprain.

I think this is going to be a close game. Toronto isn't firing on all cylinders and is having injury issues. Washington is fighting for their playoff lives and are going to be desperate. Look for this to be a tight checking, one goal game.
