Former Washington captain Steve Konowalchuk added a pair of
assists after failing to register a point in his previous five
contests. Since being acquired on October 22, Konowalchuk has
eight goals and three assists in 21 games.
Washington has lost two in a row following road wins over
Columbus and the New York Islanders. Two nights after managing
nine shots on goal at New Jersey, the Capitals scored the first
two goals before suffering a 7-3 loss at Los Angeles on
Defenseman Sergei Gonchar and Robert Lang scored in the first
4:21 before the Capitals allowed five unanswered tallies and
suffered their second four-goal loss of the season.
Washington is 2-0-1 in its last three games in Colorado and the
teams are meeting for the only time this season.
