Lightning look to end losing skid against Capitals

Tampa Bay must overcome tough Washington team to snap losing streak

by Bryan Burns /

The Tampa Bay Lightning are currently mired in their worst losing slump since the 2012-13 season having dropped four straight in regulation to fall to the second wild card spot in the Eastern Conference.

The challenge doesn't get any easier for the Bolts, however.

The Lightning host the Washington Capitals tonight at AMALIE Arena (7 p.m. puck drop) in the opening game of a back-to-back set (Tampa Bay travels to Raleigh to play Carolina on Sunday). The Caps, who are sitting in the East's first wild card spot right now, swept the Lightning last season and have won four of their last five against the Bolts in Tampa.
