The Washington Capitals head into Vancouver, looking for their first road win over the Canucks in over a decade.

The Washington Capitals hope to keep their extremely strong start rolling as they continue their Canadian road trip. They'll be taking on the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday night.

The Capitals have not won a game in Vancouver in over a decade, but considering the strength of the surging Caps in comparison to the 2011 version of the Canucks, they look like heavy favorites against the 4-5-1 home team.

Washington will finish its road trip and close out the month of October without the aid of their All-Star defenseman Mike Green, who is out with an ankle injury. They have more than enough depth in the team that his absence in the lineup shouldn't be too much of a setback at this point.

The game will air at 10:00 PM ET and will be televised on CBC and CSN-DC. You can also listen to the play-by-play on Caps Radio 1500.
