Not only are will the Washington Capitals try to beat Tampa Bay for the first time in three tries in 2011 when the teams meet on Friday night, they'll be trying to something they couldn't manage in either of the two previous meetings: Score a goal.
The red-hot Lightning bring a six-game winning streak into the game at the St. Pete Times Forum -- a stretch that's been keyed by goaltender Dwayne Roloson. Since coming to Tampa Bay from the Islanders on Jan. 1, Roloson has four shutouts -- including two against the Caps. He's also coming off a 4-0 victory against Philadelphia on Tuesday. Washington arrives five points behind the Bolts in the Southeast Division standings after a 3-2 shootout loss to Montreal on Tuesday.
