Senators Vs. Capitals: Caps Hope To Remain Unbeaten Against Struggling Senators

Through three games this season, the Washington Capitals have gone to overtime en route to three wins. With a 3-0-0 record, the Caps look to avoid overtime and remain undefeated Saturday against the Ottawa Senators at Verizon Center.

Thursday's 3-2 overtime victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins was yet another chapter in an intense rivalry. Dennis Wideman scored the game-winning goal in a game marred by controversy as a fight between Jay Beagle and Arron Asham has become a hot topic of discussion. Beagle did not return after the third period fight, but "other than a fat lip," he is fine, according to head coach Bruce Boudreau.

In other injury news, Michal Neuvirth did not practice Friday, but Boudreau said that he's "getting better" and could practice Saturday. Neuvirth has not played since last Saturday's 4-3 overtime win over the Carolina Hurricanes.

Meanwhile, the 1-3-0 Senators enter Saturday's game after an embarrassing 7-1 loss to the Colorado Avalanche. Ottawa is allowing 5.25 GA/G, highest in the NHL.
