Capitals look to rebound vs. visiting Canucks

The Washington Capitals will try to bounce back, and the visiting Vancouver Canucks hope to build a winning streak when the two teams meet in a Saturday matinee.

Washington is coming off of a 4-1 road loss to the New York Rangers, and even though the Caps hit the post and crossbar at least three times, they lost. Now, Washington, which remains in first in the Metropolitan Division ahead of the hot New York Islanders, wants to do better.

Evgeny Kuznetsov scored the only Caps' goal in the loss, with an assist from John Carlson, who continued his early-season offensive roll. Carlson now has scored a point in eight straight games -- one goal and 12 assists for 13 points. He had 18 points in a nine-game scoring run earlier this year.
