Spinning Wheels - When the Caps defeated the Canadiens in Montreal on Jan. 27 in their first game following their midseason break, it gave them a four-game winning streak, their fourth streak of four or more straight wins this season.

For the last three weeks now, they've been playing .500 hockey, essentially alternating wins with losses.
