Capitals vs Coyotes Live Analysis and Updates (Jan 19, 2023)


This is your place to check updates and comment along with Washington Capitals vs. Arizona Coyotes January 19, 2023.


Tonight the Washington Capitals will get their first look at Mullett Arena. The Caps compete against the Arizona Wolves in a college-sized arena. The place looks very small on TV. Joe B and Locker cover the game in the lower bowl.

This is a huge match for both teams. The Capitals need to win as they struggle to stay in the Eastern Conference playoff picture. Meanwhile, the Wolves must lose, and lose a lot more, to stay in contention and fail hard (enough) to Conor Bedard.

The Arizona State Devils are rooting for hats tonight. I hope you are.

Tonight’s game on NBC Sports Washington. A puck drop shortly after 9 p.m.

The Capitals beat the Arizona Coyotes 4-0. He gives Darcy Comber his fifth major league shutout opportunity, but he hasn’t had many hard saves. It was a good, solid win. It was clean. But it wasn’t the Capitals’ best effort, especially early on, and the Wolves, other than the goaltender, were really bad and had a completely non-existent offense.

The Capitals outscored the Coyotes 34-27 and outscored them 52-32 in a 5v5 match. The Capitals finished the game with a projected goal difference of 3.19 to 1.68.
