by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / washingtoncaps.com

Five Down - In the wake of Sunday's 8-5 loss to the Blackhawks in Chicago, the Capitals find themselves saddled with a five-game losing streak (0-4-1), their longest in more than four years. The last time the Caps lost as many as five straight games was from Oct. 26-Nov. 4, 2014, during the first month of Barry Trotz's four-year tenure as the team's head coach.

Sunday Morning Coming Down

The Caps score five times at five-on-five - all goals coming from defensemen - but their defense is poor and porous in an 8-5 loss in Chicago

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / washingtoncaps.com

After managing just one five-on-five goal in their previous four games, the Caps erupted for five of them on Sunday in Chicago against the Blackhawks, all five of them from defensemen. Unfortunately, the Caps also surrendered half a dozen goals at five-on-five, and the result was another ugly loss to a Western Conference opponent, 8-5 to the Hawks.

POSTGAME NOTEBOOK: Isles 2, Caps 0

Isles topple Caps from top spot in Metro at end of tough week, Orpik and Trotz are honored, more

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / washingtoncaps.com

Toppled From The Top - During his four-year tenure as coach here in Washington, we heard many of Barry Trotz's favorite coaching tenets, and we heard some more than others. Trotz was fond of saying said that teams needed to keep points coming in and they needed to avoid losing streaks, because in a league with so much parity, a bad turn can send you in a southerly direction. "You can't afford to have a bad week," was probably his most frequent way of putting it.
