Capitals

The Capitals play their biggest game of the season on Sunday as they face the Columbus Blue Jackets. It is a game that is so big, in fact, that Washington was caught looking ahead on Friday in a surprising loss to Arizona. The Caps hold a four-point lead over the Blue Jackets in the race for the Metropolitan Division. A win in regulation may just bury Columbus.
