Capitals host Blue Jackets after rare California sweep

The Washington Capitals swept the state of California and now return home Monday to put their six-game winning streak on the line against the slumping Columbus Blue Jackets.

Washington finished its four-game road trip Friday with a 3-2 victory over the Anaheim Ducks. The Caps began the trip with a win in Detroit followed by victories in San Jose, Los Angeles and Anaheim.

That was just the second time in team history that Washington won all three games in California. Overall, the six wins have come in just 10 nights as the Capitals lead the NHL with 49 points.
