The Washington Capitals will be looking to get back to their winning ways against the Boston Bruins Wednesday night after a poor performance against Columbus on Monday.
The Caps lost what could be called a trap game to the Blue Jackets 5-2, despite a solid performance in net from Braden Holtby. Similarly, though, the Bruins lost to the lowly Ottawa Senators - eerily by an identical 5-2 score.
Nights like those just go to show any team can win on any given night in the NHL. The Capitals and Bruins will both be looking to bounce back in an interdivisional heavyweight contest, especially after a Capitals shootout win in mid-November.
Here's how to catch the action.

Capitals-Bruins Players to Watch
Niklas Backstrom, C, Capitals: Other than Braden Holtby's stout performance in net, Backstrom was another bright spot on the stat sheet against Columbus on Monday night. He scored once and assisted another in the 5-2 losing effort in his first game back from an upper-body injury that kept him out the eight prior games. He now has 20 points (5 G, 15 A) through 24 games played this season.
Brad Marchand, LW, Bruins: Marchand is fourth in the league's scoring charts having scored 46 points (18 G, 26 A) through 31 games played. He scored a personal best 100 points last season and was instrumental once again on the offensive side of the Senators loss, assisting both goals. That performance could spark a more productive run for Marchand, as he had only notched one assist in the five previous games.
