Caps go for 14th straight at home on Monday night
The Washington Capitals look extend their franchise-record home winning streak to 14 games in one of two games on Monday night's NHL schedule.
A national television audience across the United States and Canada will watch to see if the Washington Capitals can extend their franchise-record home winning streak to 14 games in one of two games on Monday night's NHL schedule.

The Capitals face off against the Dallas Stars at 7 p.m. ET, with Versus and TSN2 providing coverage from the Verizon Center.

Eric Fehr and Eric Belanger scored goals and Jose Theodore stopped all 30 shots Saturday in a 2-0 shutout of the New York Rangers. With 96 points, the Capitals are running away with the top seed in the Eastern Conference.

The Stars, meanwhile, trail the Red Wings by six points for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference and are coming off a 6-3 loss in Pittsburgh on Saturday.

In the late game Monday, the Los Angeles Kings play host to the Columbus Blue Jackets at 10:30 p.m. The Kings are looking to avoid losing three straight in regulation for the first time this season.
Quote of the Day

He's a winner. We want winners here, and he's a proven winner. He's won two Stanley Cups. He's 22 years old and been a big part of it. He's got all the right tools. He's got size (6-foot-1, 204 pounds) and strength. He's exactly what we were looking for. He's going to be a big piece of our team for many, many years to come.

— Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen on Brandon Saad, who he acquired in a trade with the Blackhawks on Tuesday
