The Capitals are 5-4-1 since returning from the bye week and, after Thursday's loss in San Jose, have lost two consecutive games in regulation for just the third time this season. It's a swoon reminiscent of last season in which a Washington team that dominated the regular season slowed down in the last quarter of the season en route to a second round exit to the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Caps will try to buck that trend and return to the win column on Saturday against the Los Angeles Kings.
