NBCSN, TSN2 to televise Caps-Hurricanes
The Washington Capitals' bid to get back into playoff position will be televised across the United States and Canada on Monday night.
The Washington Capitals' bid to get back into playoff position will be televised across the United States and Canada on Monday night.

Washington, which is just 3-5-2 over its last 10 games, will visit the Carolina Hurricanes at the RBC Center in a Southeast Division showdown. Opening faceoff is slated for 7:30 p.m. ET and can be seen on the NBC Sports Network in the U.S. and TSN2 in Canada.

The Caps (29-24-5) enter Monday's action in 10th place in the Eastern Conference, but can pull even with first-place Florida in the Southeast with a victory. They can also move one point ahead of eighth-place Toronto, which is idle Monday.

The only other game on Monday's schedule takes place at 1 p.m. ET, when the New York Islanders host the Ottawa Senators at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum. Ottawa (30-22-8) will be seeking its third straight win, while the Isles (25-25-8) have a chance to get over the .500 mark.
Quote of the Day

I first met him when I was 19 years old and he coached me for 13 consecutive years. I don't know how many athletes who have had that pleasure. Al Arbour was a man that left us not only feeling like champions, but left us with a lot of great memories that we can carry on through life.

— Islanders Hall of Fame defenseman Denis Potvin on former coach Al Arbour, who passed away Friday at the age of 82
