by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / washingtoncaps.com

Some aspects of Washington's game looked better than they have recently on Wednesday night in Toronto, but right now that's a low bar. Other aspects of the Caps' collective game continued to plague them against the Leafs, and the result was a 6-3 loss that extends Washington's losing streak to seven straight games (0-5-2), their longest in almost exactly five years.
