Capitals bring two-game skid into game with hot Flyers

WASHINGTON -- Maybe the Washington Capitals got a little too comfortable during their league-mandated five-day break. The Philadelphia Flyers are hoping to take advantage.

"If you've watched us play lately, we've gone a bit stale," Capitals coach Barry Trotz told reporters after Saturday's morning skate.

Washington is looking to avoid a three-game losing streak when it hosts Philadelphia on Sunday in a showdown between the Metropolitan Division rivals. The Capitals are coming off a 3-2 loss to the Montreal Canadiens on Friday, marking the first time they've dropped two straight at home since October.
