Washington Capitals vs Toronto Maple

Preview

Washington Capitals opened the new season at the Capital One Arena, where the match against Boston took place. The team is known to have failed to succeed, and lost with a score (2-5).

Over the course of three periods, Washington made 35 shots on Boston’s goal, and even outplayed the guests in this indicator. However, the opponent’s super forwards produced a good conversion percentage (5.71%), which caused a disaster.

At the gate for the Capitals was goaltender Darcy Kuemper, who arrived as a champion. True, one can hardly guess this from his debut meeting: 25 saves and a mediocre percentage of reflected shots – 86.21%.

The first goals of the new season for Washington were scored by Anthony Mantha and Conor Sheary. The goals of these forwards helped the team to minimize the gap, but in the third period they finally lost.

For the first match of the 2022/23 NHL, the team from Ontario played against Montreal. In the head-to-head match, the opponents scored a high-scoring match in terms of goals scored, four of which conceded the Maple Leafs (3-4).

During the entire match, Toronto hit on goal more often than the Canadiens did, however, the implementation of the shots was mediocre – 9.38% of hits from 32 charges.

In this match, the club’s goal was defended by Matt Murray, who collected 19 saves in three periods – 82.61%. Scored for Toronto by Michael Banting, Denis Malgin and William Nylander.
