After a rough road trip through California, the Capitals return home to Verizon Center looking to end a four-game losing streak. Despite the slump, head coach Barry Trotz believes the Caps could be better for it in the long run, but they desperately need to get back into the win column. Unfortunately, the task won't get any easier on Tuesday as they face an equally desperate Minnesota Wild team led by former Capitals bench boss Bruce Boudreau.
