Washington had numerous chances to achieve separation from the Arizona Coyotes on Saturday night at Verizon Center, but it wasn't until after the Coyotes came back to tie the game in the third period that the Caps were able put some distance between themselves and the Desert Dogs.

Caps Overpower Flames, 4-2

Two clutch power-play goals and a 29-save night from Braden Holtby help the Caps to douse the red hot Flames.

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / Monumental Sports Network

Kevin Shattenkirk's first goal as a Capital wasn't pretty at all, and it didn't even look like Shattenkirk's goal at first glance. But it was a pretty big goal at that juncture of the Tuesday's contest against Calgary, and it showed some killer instinct on the part of the Capitals as well.

Oshie and Backstrom Help Caps to 5-3 Win Over Bolts

Oshie's hat trick and Backstrom's four-assist game help Caps halt three-game road slide with win over Lightning in Tampa.

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / Monumental Sports Network

Shortly after noon, Caps coach Barry Trotz informed reporters that he viewed Saturday night's road game with the Tampa Bay Lightning as a "must win" contest for his team. Given that the Caps went into the game on the cusp of clinching a playoff berth while the depleted Lightning are battling hard with a few other teams for the final remaining postseason berth in the Eastern Conference, "must win" seemed to apply to the home team more than the Capitals.

#CapsBolts Skate Shavings: Turning The Tide In Tampa

Caps look to get right tonight in Tampa, Burakovsky returns to lineup, Caps can clinch tonight; could also be sharing top spot in Metro by game time.

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / Monumental Sports Network

In the midst of a stretch in which they play five of six games on home ice, the Capitals are in Tampa on Saturday to take on the Lightning in the team's lone road game over that span. With just one win in its last six games (1-4-1), a three-game road losing streak - all in regulation - coming into tonight's game, and two teams immediately behind it in the standings, Washington needs to start streaming some standings points.
