Capitals-Canadiens Preview

(AP) -- The Washington Capitals snapped a four-game losing streak with a return to form defensively. They'll try for a similar effort as they look to avoid a fifth consecutive loss away from home.

Doing so will mean cooling off the Montreal Canadiens, one of the top defensive teams in the league that's seeking its fifth straight victory Saturday.

Washington's 2.50 goals-against average has it among the NHL leaders, but it gave up 17 non-shootout goals during an 0-3-1 stretch. The Capitals (25-14-9) bounced back with a 4-0 victory over Pittsburgh on Wednesday, limiting the Penguins to 27 shots and 16 over the final two periods.
