Capitals try to avenge recent loss to Lightning

It was just last weekend that the Washington Capitals were outplayed in a road loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Though the task likely won't be any easier, the host Capitals quickly get a shot at payback Wednesday night, while trying to extend their season-high home winning streak to six games and keep the Presidents' Trophy-owning Lightning from claiming a sixth straight victory overall.

On Saturday against Washington, Tampa Bay scored the first two goals and led 3-1 after a period. Three times the Capitals got within a goal, but three goals -- two empty-net -- in the final period by the Lightning produced a 6-3 victory.
