WASHINGTON (Ticker) -- The Chicago Blackhawks look to notch their first win in nearly a month when they visit the Washington Capitals on Tuesday.

Since posting a 5-1 victory over the St. Louis Blues on December 16, the Blackhawks have dropped 10 straight contests. It is the longest skid in franchise history since a club-record 12-game losing streak from February 25-March 25, 1951.

Chicago dropped a 5-1 decision to the Nashville Predators on Sunday. Mark Bell netted the lone tally for the Blackhawks, who fell to 3-10-4 since the beginning of December.

The Blackhawks hope to snap their skid against a Capitals squad which has dropped four in a row.

Dainius Zubrus netted a game-tying power-play goal in the third period Sunday, but Washington dropped a 4-3 decision in a shootout to the Florida Panthers.

Zubrus tallied twice and Olaf Kolzig made 39 saves for the Capitals, who have scored a total of just seven goals over their last four games.
