Capitals

The Washington Capitals will look to win their fourth in a row as they host the Vancouver Canucks.

Here are three bold predictions for Sunday's game (CSN, 5 p.m.):

1. The Caps will score four or more goals

Don't look now, but the Caps are hitting their stride on offense. Washington has won three straight with 11 goals in those three wins. On Friday T.J. Oshie scored in his second game back from injury, John Carlson scored his first of the season and Jakub Vrana scored the first goal of his career. Vancouver, meanwhile, is 23rd in the NHL in goals against.

2. Both Sedins will register a point

Henrik and Daniel Sedin have combined for 12 points in the past six games and are Vancouver's two leading scorers. When the Caps and Canucks last played in October, neither twin managed a point. Considering how much Vancouver's offense relies on the Sedins, Washington won't be able to keep them off the scoresheet for a second time.

3. Alex Ovechkin will score a goal

Ovechkin has not scored in seven games. With the rest of the offense starting to produce, Ovechkin will finally find room to work with and finally score goal No. 13 of the season.
