Capitals-Canadiens Preview

(AP) -- Alex Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals have their sights set on finishing in the top three of the Metropolitan Division.

Getting there, however, won't be easy with a difficult stretch run, starting with the Atlantic-leading Montreal Canadiens on Thursday night.

Washington (42-25-10) occupies the Eastern Conference's first wild-card spot, but it's just one point behind the New York Islanders for third in the division with five games to go. Unfortunately for the Capitals, each of their remaining contests are against teams who have already clinched a postseason berth or are in the playoff picture.
