Capitals try to keep point streak going on trip to Senators

The Washington Capitals look to extend their season-opening point streak to six games when they visit the Ottawa Senators on Monday night.

The Capitals continue to ride the hot hands of linemates Alex Ovechkin and Evgeny Kuznetsov. Ovechkin has five goals and five assists, while Kuznetsov has four goals and five assists.

"I think he's in really good shape. His mindset is in the right direction," Ovechkin said of Kuznetsov, who struggled the past two seasons. "It's kind of fun to play with him. It's fun to see his smile, fun to see what he can do on the ice."
