The Washington Capitals look to end a four game losing streak and find some offense against the Ottawa Senators this weekend.

In addition to getting new coach Dale Hunter his first win, the Washington Capitals also enter the first weekend of December looking to end a four game losing streak. The Ottawa Senators, who are having a better season than expected, come to the Verizon Center Saturday night for the Capitals only game of the weekend.

Ottawa comes to Washington with a record of 12-11-1 and 26 points, one more than the Capitals. The Senators lost in Dallas on Thursday, but are 5-3 in their last eight games. Ottawa is led by Sens veteran Jason Spezza, who has a team high 23 points this season.
