Boston Bruins vs Washington Capitals Predictions 5/23/2021

Throughout the game, the Capitals were hampered by penalties and were unable to establish an offensive flow. With 15 minutes left on the clock, Alex Ovechkin improved it to 3-1 when his shot was diverted into the net by Bruins’ defenseman Brandon Carlo. It was Ovechkin’s opening goal of the 2021 playoffs, and his 71st overall, but that was the most that the Capitals could go on Friday. The Washington Capitals are 2nd at 36-15 in the NL East.

For Washington, Ilya Samsonov earned 33 saves, but he appeared uneasy for long portions of the game. He fought to keep his stick in his hands, dropping it three times in the second period, and had to skate off with a knee injury, but he managed to finish the game.
