Surging Capitals look to pad lead vs. Avalanche

DENVER -- The Washington Capitals have led the Metropolitan Division for most of the season, but the final seven games will determine whether they hold onto that position and seal home-ice advantage throughout the playoffs.

It is not an easy road for Washington, which started a five-game trek with a 5-4 overtime win over the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday night.

The victory helped the Capitals keep the surging Columbus Blue Jackets three points behind with seven games left for both teams. Washington (50-17-8) has 108 points, five clear of defending champion Pittsburgh, which also has seven games remaining.
