Capitals-Hurricanes Preview

(AP) -- Perhaps a visit to Carolina will help the Washington Capitals get back on track.

Looking to avoid a third straight defeat Friday night, the Capitals try for a sixth straight road win over a Hurricanes team that's already in selling mode.

Though Washington (33-19-10) owns the top wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference, Wednesday's 4-3 home loss to Pittsburgh dropped it three points behind the rival Penguins for third place in the Metropolitan Division.
