After a four-game losing streak, the Caps are back with three straight wins and a five-game point streak. On Saturday they face an absolute must-win game against the lowly Arizona Coyotes. Maintaining a sense of urgency down the stretch of the season was a problem for Washington last year, but a tight race in the Metropolitan Division means the Caps need points to maintain first place. That means they can't afford to leave two points on the table against a scuffling team like the Coyotes.
