Capitals, red-hot Ovechkin visit Hurricanes

RALEIGH, N.C. -- Things are going so well for the Washington Capitals that perhaps veteran center Alex Ovechkin has even improved.

That's probably about the last thing the Carolina Hurricanes need to hear in advance of Friday night's game at PNC Arena.

The Capitals produced a 6-2 home victory Tuesday night against the Detroit Red Wings, buoyed by Ovechkin's hat trick that extended his point streak to 12 games.
