Premier Sports, 12.30am Thursday night

There were plenty of goals on NHL opening night and that trend can continue as Washington visit Ottawa.

The Capitals roster has undergone something of an overhaul for this season and their defence look rather shaky.

Ottawa, meanwhile are without brilliant captain Erik Karlsson and shipped 22 goals over their last three preseason games.

Over 5.5 goals
