The Washington Capitals host the Boston Bruins on Tuesday evening before embarking on a three-game road trip. Washington hopes to end its two-game losing streak and keep pace with the Florida Panthers in the Southeast Division.
In their last outing, the Capitals fell to the Pittsburgh Penguins, 4-3, in overtime, squandering what had been a 3-2 lead. Alex Ovechkin had one goal and two assists in the losing effort.
Boston is coming off a 6-5 win in a shootout against the Philadelphia Flyers, which improved it to 5-1 in shootouts for the 2011/12 season. Tim Thomas stoned Wayne Simmonds' tying attempt in the shootout, giving the Bruins the victory.
