Capitals focus on bouncing back vs. Blackhawks

After having a three-game winning streak snapped in dramatic fashion on Tuesday night by the Florida Panthers, the Washington Capitals open a four-game homestand on Thursday against the Chicago Blackhawks.

The Capitals returned after Tuesday night's 5-4 loss still tied at the top of the Eastern Conference with 33 points with the Panthers and Toronto, but blew an excellent chance to take over the top spot. Washington led 4-1 heading into the third period before Florida scored four consecutive goals, outshooting the Capitals 27-2 in the process.

"That was probably the worst period for us this year," said center Lars Eller. "It shouldn't happen when you're up three goals. It stings right now for sure.
