On Wednesday morning, Caps defenseman John Carlson acknowledged his team's early struggles on home ice this season. "We haven't been good at home, so that's going to be a big thing for us," he said, ahead of Washington's meeting with the Toronto Maple Leafs. "We've always been a good home team, and it's something where we want to carry on that tradition. It's been unacceptable at home - our efforts - and we'll look to change that tonight."
