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.

After their season low 17 shots on goal Thursday night, the once high-powered Caps roster will try to find some offense and end the losing streak this weekend. The puck is scheduled to drop at 7:00 PM at Verizon Center, and the game will be broadcast on CSN.
