Tonight the Caps open up a three game road trip in Ottawa to face the Senators for the fourth and final time this season. Two weeks ago, the Caps got run over in Ottawa by a score of 5-2. The Caps have only won twice in the four games since then, both of them over the Carolina Hurricanes and most recently being this past Saturday night. The Senators have also won twice in four games since these two teams last met. However, they lost last night 3-1 in Montreal.

What Do I Expect Tonight?:

Ottawa is finishing off a three-games-in-four nights with the second of back-to-back games tonight and have been improving lately in these situations. The Caps once again will have their work cut out for them because they are playing a more talented hockey team. They'll have to play another strong game in order to have any chance of getting two points. How much last night's emotionally charged game in Montreal will affect the Senators tonight is anybody's guess but Bryan Murray coached hockey teams are awfully tough to beat in January and February.
